THE SEASON IS HERE! THE SEASON IS HERE!
September/October: Cole Porter's Red, Hot & Blue, starring Klea Blackhurst.
October/November: Irving Berlin's Miss Liberty
March/April 2006: The Golden Apple
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!
