A Pocketful of Rhymes, with music by Jeanne Bargy and Jim Eiler and book and lyrics by Jim Eiler, is the Broadway hit musical from the 80’s starring the world's first Lady of Rhyme - Mother Goose. This exciting show literally lifts these classic stories off the pages of the book and brings them to life. A fast-paced musical revue, the show moves quickly from Little Boy Blue and Humpty Dumpty to a high stepping hoe-down Yankee Doodle Dandy with clever musical juxtapositions including boogie woogie and rock ‘n roll with a special appearance by Elvis himself for a whirlwind of family entertainment
