The New York City Center Encores! season-ender features a rarely seen French musical directed by John Doyle.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Encores! breaks the mold with its first musical not written on American soil. Irma La Douce is the tale of a Parisian lady of the evening and the law student who falls in love with her. After a three-year run in Paris, an English-language version of the show, directed by Peter Brook, enjoyed tremendous success first in London and then on Broadway. The score produced one standard, "Our Language of Love", and also features "The Valse Millieu" and "Dis Donc".
