Scoops on 2005-2006 Season Start to Leak Out
We will be doing Cole Porter's "Red, Hot & Blue" starring (drum roll please.......) Klea Blackhurst!
Red, Hot & Blue starred Ethel Merman back in 1936, and, of course, Klea has performed her Merman tribute "Everything the Traffic will Allow" to great acclaim since 2001.
We will be doing "The Golden Apple." The Golden What, you ask? Yes, The Golden Apple is quite lost and quite wonderful. It's the ancient tale of Ulysses, set during the Spanish-American War, with Music by Jerome Moross, Book & Lyrics by John Latouche: based on Homer's The Odyssey and The Iliad. It's nearly sung-thru, quite challenging, and something that Greg & Stephanie have been wanting to do for a long time.
This coming season at 42nd St. Moon number one audience-requested musical in our history will finally grace our stage...pending right approval...which is why i can't give it away just yet.
So two true tidbits, and one tease! Not bad.
(Oh, and Greg promises to post the full season to the blog first, even before letting our publicist get up and running with the season announcement. So stay tuned!
