Salad Days

Salad Days is a musical with music by Julian Slade and lyrics by Dorothy Reynolds and Julian Slade.

It premiered at the Bristol Old Vic in 1954, and transferred to the Vaudeville Theatre in London on August 5 of that year, running for 2,283 performances to become the longest-running show in British musical theatre until overtaken by Oliver!.

The title is taken from William Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra: “My salad days, When I was green in judgement, cold in blood, To say as I said then!”, and the phrase is now used to refer to ones days of youthful inexperience.
