Hold Everything! is a musical comedy with lyrics by Lew Brown and B. G. de Sylva, music by Ray Henderson, and has an accompanying book by John McGowan and B. G. de Sylva.

Produced by Alex A. Aarons and Vinton Freedley, the Broadway production opened on 10 October 1928 at the Broadhurst Theatre for a total run of 409 performances. The cast included Bert Lahr, Jack Whiting, Ona Munson and Victor Moore.

Bert Lahr’s career as a star began with this show. This most famous song from the show is “You're the Cream in My Coffee”. In 1930, Warner Brothers produced a movie version Hold Everything filmed entirely in Technicolor. This film version is now considered a lost film.
