Me and My Girl features a book and lyrics by L. Arthur Rose and Douglas Furber, a revised book by Stephen Fry, with contributions by Mike Ockrent, and music by Noel Gay.

The toast of the 1937 London season, Me and My Girl was revived in London in 1984 and became a smash hit for a second time. That production transferred to Broadway at the Marquis Theatre on August 10, 1986, and ran for 1,420 performances. Robert Lindsay and Maryann Plunkett co-starred in the Broadway production, both earning Tony Awards for their performances.
