Connecticut Yankee, A synopsis
Connecticut Yankee, A Synopsis - Broadway musicalThe musical of 1927th production, tells that in 1920 some guy named Martin must marry a certain girl named Fay. Martin is visited by his old love named Alice and Fay knocks her fiancé in a fit of jealousy, and he falls into a blackout. At that time, he has a dream that takes him into the yard of King Arthur, in the year 528 B. C. He falls in love with a beautiful girl named Demoiselle Alisande, pronouncing with French charm, as she calls herself. She is depicted by Alice. Morgan Le Fay – the evil king's sister, who is portrayed by Fay, somehow does not want very much to accept the fact that Martin falls in love with Alisande and organizes her kidnapping. What makes her so much unpleased – is unknown. Martin finds and rescues Alisande, realizing that he really loves Alice, rather than Fay. Waking up, he breaks up with Fay.
Mark Twain, who originally wrote this story, certainly is glad that the adaptations of his works are performed for many times. There was even a screen version – the film – which played by a black actor and it was done as a comedy. Adaptation of 1943 was tied more to the realities of war, heroes rode in a jeep, and the evil sister was transformed into singer-sorceress, while the same plot was maintained in general.
