Plain and Fancy was the first Broadway musical to open in 1955, shortly before Silk Stockings and Damn Yankees, and ran for 461 performances followed by over 350 performances in London. It was a hit by any standard. Now, nearly five decades later, Amish Acres has become the national home for this delightful musical, celebrating its 16th season, after 2,600 performances before 250,000 patrons. It is the heartwarming tale of a New York couple that experiences a rare glimpse of life and love on an Amish farm. Whether it is your first trip to Bird-in-Hand or a return visit, the community revealed through Plain and Fancy's music, laughter and joy, will touch people of all origins, backgrounds and faiths! The theatre's stage has been dedicated to Joseph Stein, co-author of the show, whose support and guidance has given the theatre much of its charm, character, and direction. Among its songs "Young and Foolish" became one of the years most popular songs, recorded by Dean Martin. Other popular pieces include "It Wonders Me," "Plenty of Pennsylvania," "Follow Your Heart," and "Plain We Live," which was sung at the United States Postal Service dedication ceremony for its Amish Quilts commemorative stamps on the Round Barn Theatre's stage.
