Betty Boop is a beloved American icon, who has wowed her fans and the media for nearly ninety years. First introduced in 1930 by Max Fleischer and considered to be the first female animated screen star, Betty took the country by storm. She is a force to be reckoned with, and many claim she was ahead of her time with her daring look and irresistible charm. Ambitious, confident, and empowering, Betty Boop seeks to make a positive change in the world around her.
“Betty Boop embodies the universal themes of Love, Courage, Independence, and Hope—the same themes that keep coming up in my own work as a musician and composer. It’s these themes that have inspired us to bring Betty to Broadway. Betty within the pages of this book or on Broadway—it’s all positive and empowering. I think the whole world could use a little Betty Boop right now.”
—David Foster, renowned musician and composer
