Complete book and lyrics to the 1891 Musical Comedy. A record breaking 657 performances, A Trip to Chinatown was the longest running Broadway musical of its era. With its Hello Dollyish plot of a widow who maneuvers several young couples into the big city to bring romance to them and herself, the musical is a tapestry of 1890s merriment. Unlike other American musicals at the time with their European aristocratic characters and plotlines, A Trip to Chinatown emphasized ordinary Americans in a comical musical setting. It would set the standard for many musicals to follow.
