But his old friends Lily and Les Martin have an idea for a funny little Broadway show and Tony agrees to do it.

He proclaims it's a modernistic Faust and insists on hiring a prima ballerina, Gabrielle Gerard, to star opposite Tony. It's hate at first sight. Her jealous choreographer isn't helping matters. The show looks doomed, but romance, an epiphany, and a triumphant opening are waiting in the wings
