In the original 1962 Broadway production of Little Me, an older affluent Belle looks back on her successful career and recounts her story. In the revised 1982 version the aging Belle has suffered severe financial setbacks and is an entertainer in a club in Hackensack New Jersey. Tony Walton's colorful set design for the "Casa Mañana" club (shown above), one of the many he created for the revival, complemented and emphasized the bright comedy of the production. Walton also designed the costumes for the new production.
