Broadway star Maggie Garrett sings for her supper—and for everyone else’s. She’s the meal ticket for relatives who sap her of money and time, and rob her of the joy of living. Her world changes when she meets a carefree millionaire who thinks Maggie is a peach and her family is the pits. Add a Jerome Kern score. That’s living!
