Since it played at the Goodspeed Opera House in Connecticut last fall, in a developmental production with a largely different cast, Gerle and Sugarman have added four new songs, rewritten or removed several others, and changed characters and scenes.

So she invents a character, John Doe, who promises to commit suicide on Christmas Eve to protest the condition of "the common man. Norton Patrick Ryan Sullivan have to come up with a flesh and blood Doe.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: "I'm Your Man" from MEET JOHN DOE

The British Drama: pt. But above all, Sir Anthony, she should be mistress of orthodoxy, that she might not misspell and mispronounce words so shamefully as girls usually do; and likewise that she might reprehend the true meaning of what she is saying.
This, Sir Anthony, is what I would have a woman know; and I don't think there is a superstitious article in it. This is the first mark of tenderness I ever had from a modest woman, and it touches me.

My life has been chiefly spent in a college, or an inn, in seclusion from that lovely part of the creation that chiefly teach men confidence. Then, Jack, her cheeks! Toroddle, toroddle, toroll. Then come, put the jorum about, And let us be merry and clever, Our hearts and our liquors are stout, Here's the Three Jolly Pigeons for ever.
I like to give them a hearty reception in the old style at my gate. I like to see their horses and trunks taken care of. Malaprop, we must forget and forgive ; — odds life! Well, Sir Anthony, since you desire it, we will not anticipate the past; — so mind, young people — our retrospection will be all to the future. Marlow, whom I have pitched upon, is the son of my old friend, Sir Charles Marlow, of whom you have heard me talk so often. The young gentleman has been bred a scholar, and is designed for an employment in the service of his country.
Malaprop, I observed your niece's maid coming forth from a circulating library!

A promising American musical isn't born every minute. Heck, whole years go by without anything approximating the arrival of a melodious blessed event… Treated to a slick, skillful staging by Eric Schaeffer, [ Meet John Doe ] is a rewarding platform for a pair of talented young songwriters and a knockout of a leading lady named Heidi Blickenstaff… Composer Andrew Gerle and lyricist Eddie Sugarman, who also collaborated on the show's book, conjure in this populist musical fable a Depression-era America as desperate for a decent public man as it is for a buck… the score, ably served by Jonathan Tunick's orchestrations — a piece band sits on a bridge over the stage — is filled with clever lyrics and bright and supple melodies… On the nervy shoulders of Ann, the plot must be carried, and Blickenstaff is more than up to it. She's a dynamite successor to the movie's Barbara Stanwyck: It's a star performance, in fact. There's an effortless kind of kick to Blickenstaff's readings of Ann's sharp-elbowed lines.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: I'm Your Man (Meet John Doe) by Melissa Winter
If anybody should ask you what the average John Doe is like, you couldn't tell him because he's a million and one things.

He seldom walks up to a public telephone without shovin' his finger into the slot to see if somebody left a nickel there. He's the man the ads are written for.
