No No Nanette
Red Sox Connection
No No Nanette was Broadway musical first produced in 1925 by Harry Frazee who at that time owned the Sox. It was rumored that Frazee traded Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees in order to fund this production [Despite the fact that the Sale of Babe Ruth happened FIVE YEARS previous to Nanette opening]. The musical was very successful, spawning movie adaptations in 1930 and 1940.
(Excerpt from Musicals 101)
Nanette was such a hit in Chicago that it stayed there for more than a year. By the time Broadway saw the show, a successful London production was already running. Translated into various languages, it enjoyed international success through the end of the decade. After three mediocre screen adaptations, Nanette began to fade into obscurity. Then in 1971, a nostalgic Broadway revival revamped the book, left most of the score intact and electrified audiences with several sensational dance sequences. In this version, it has become the most frequently performed musical comedy of the 1920s.
