Arthur also is attending Sherry's school play and overhears one of the older girls ridiculing Sherry that her sister is not really a stage singer and probably does not exist. Arthur comes to the rescue by praising Jo's performances on stage. Arthur is casting a new play and though he appreciate's Sherry's voice she is too young to appear on Broadway.
Jo, Sherry and Arthur meet after the play but no one is the wiser as to the reason's for Jo's mysterious entrance. Jo also turns down an offer to audition for Arthur's play.
On a trip to New York with her schoolfriend, Sherry rings Jo's hotel where the clerk tells her she is performing in one of the theatres on 42nd Street. Jo discovers she is not a Broadway star, but a leading burlesque performer. Initially broken hearted, Sherry schemes that if she dresses to look older she will win the part in Arthur's show and support Jo so she leaves burlesque. Arthur can not believe she can pass for over 18 but a score of servicemen at a nightclub prove Arthur wrong.
