Let's recap what we knew:

September/October: Cole Porter's Red, Hot & Blue, starring Klea Blackhurst.

October/November: Irving Berlin's Miss Liberty

November/December: Open

March/April 2006: The Golden Apple

April/May: Open

Drum roll please:

The holiday slot will be filled with The Roar of the Greasepaint, the Smell of the Crowd!

An Anthony Newley/Leslie Bricusse show that opened on Broadway in 1965, Roar/Smell (which I'm going to call it from now on, has rarely been produced in recent, oh I don't know, decades, but did spawn a couple of cabaret standards, including "Who Can I Turn To." There are certainly shows from the 60s that have a classic Broadway musical sensibility, but Roar/Smell had a definite modern sensibility, and is quite a departure for 42nd St. Moon

Even bigger drum roll please:

The Season Closer will be the number one audience-requested show in Moon history, Jerry Herman's Mack & Mabel, henceforth to be called M&M by this lazy typist.

There you have it. All rights secured; everything nailed down: the entire 42nd St. Moon Season announced at last, and you heard it here first!
