Delilah Lee (Betty Grable) is groomed by her husband Jeff Ames (Macdonald Carey) for his new Broadway show. Delilah becomes such a success to a point where she feels that Jeff thinks of her more as an asset than a wife. When the show's backer Gloria Carstairs (Lois Andrews) begins coming on to Jeff, Delilah leaves him, but regrets it later on and tries to win him back. She devises a scheme involving amnesia to lure Jeff back to her.

    Betty Grable had been reigning the box office throughout the 1940s. Her films always made big money for 20th Century Fox and they rewarded her by increasing her salary over the years to a point where she was making more money than Darryl F. Zanuck. By the end of the decade she was making $300,000 a year which made her the highest paid person in Hollywood and one of the highest paid people in America. Meet Me After the Show was a box office hit when released, especially due to the successes of her two films the previous year; Wabash Avenue and My Blue Heaven.

    Rory Calhoun co-starred in this movie. He would also co-star with Betty Grable in How to Marry a Millionaire in 1953 playing her romantic interest in that film.

    Meet Me After the Show also features a supporting performance by Irene Ryan later of The Beverly Hillbillies fame. She played Grable's maid Tillie.

    Gwen Verdon is an uncredited singer and dancer in some of the musical numbers composed by Jule Styne with lyrics by Leo Robin. In her only solo album, The Girl I Left Home For (1955), Verdon sang three songs from the film: It's a Hot Time in Alaska, Bettin' on a Man and No-Talent Joe.
