Fanny features a score by Harold Rome and a book by S.N. Behrman and Joshua Logan, based on Marcel Pagnol's novels, which focus on a young girl who falls in love with a sailor. The company, as previously announced, also features Elena Shaddow (Fanny), George Hearn (Cesar), James Snyder (Marius), Fred Applegate (Panisse), David Patrick Kelly (The Admiral), and Michael McCormick (Escartifique).
