Synopsis

A musical adaptation of William Shakespeare's play, set in the glamorous court of the King of Navarre. In 1939, the King and his three best friends swear off women for several years so they can devote themselves to philosophical study. However, when the Princess of France arrives on a diplomatic mission with her three beautiful attendants in tow, their plan goes awry. The men conceal their passions from each other and pursue their respective love interests in secret. Their romantic interludes come to a grinding halt when the Princess is suddenly summoned home to bury her father and the men are recruited to fight the Nazis. Before they all separate, the men pledge their love and vow to remain faithful, no matter what the impending war may bring.
