Kismet relates a tale of love and mistaken identities set in the busy center of old Baghdad. At the heart of this thrilling adventure is a cunning poet by the name of Hajj and his lovely daughter, Marsinah. Living in poverty, the two are forced to beg and steal until a series of lucky coincidences led them to find romantic prospects and better fortunes.

After making its debut on Broadway, the musical Kismet brought home the 1954 Tony Award for Best Musical. Staged right in the middle of a newspaper strike, the musical was advertised on TV and caught popular attention despite earning some unfavorable reviews. After Broadway, the theatrical production was brought to West End, inspired a movie, and was revived a few times.
