A Party with Betty Comden and Adolph Green is a musical revue with a book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green and music by Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne, André Previn, Saul Chaplin, and Roger Edens.

The performance was composed of material written by Comden and Green for stage shows, films, and their former comedy troupe The Revuers.

Produced by the Theatre Guild, the original Broadway production opened on December 23, 1958 at the John Golden Theatre, where it ran for 82 performances. It won the Obie Award for Best Musical [1]. An original cast recording was released by Angel Records [2].

After four previews, a revival opened on February 10, 1977 at the Morosco Theatre, where it remained for six weeks before transferring to the Little Theatre to complete its 92-performance run. The duo then took the show on tour; a revival cast album recorded live at the Arena Theatre in Washington, D.C. was released by DRG [3].
