A 1935 Broadway musical revue starring Beatrice Lillie, Eleanor Powell and Ethel Waters. Music and lyrics came from that redoubtable pair, Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz, with direction from Thomas Mitchell and Vincente Minnelli, who was making his first outing on the Broadway stage. There were a number of exotic locations represented on this musical holiday cruise, as well as the more mundane. A London store was the setting for Eleanor Powell to have fun with At Home Abroad, an idiomatic summation of the manners and mores of the British.
