Nymph Errant

Nymph Errant's structure is the polar opposite of an integrated Cole Porter show like Kiss Me Kate. Gertrude Lawrence and her "school chums" pop up at regular intervals to sing sassy specialty songs between skits with the various wacky suitors, and the plot sort of bumbles along when it must.

Here's Julie Andrews singing the fabulous "The Physician" in the less than fabulous Gertrude Lawrence biopic Star!
