Citizens are excoriated for behavior others find "indecent." Some politicians turn a blind eye, others actively support the law-breakers. San Francisco in 2004? No, Paris in the 1890's. 42nd Street Moon, San Francisco's only theatre company dedicated to presenting "lost musicals," presents the dazzling Cole Porter/Abe Burrows musical Can-Can. Capturing the spirit of the Belle Epoque, this musical gem recalls the decadent and the "live and let live" morality of the Gay Nineties. Songs include "I Love Paris," "C'est Magnifique," "It's All Right With Me," "Live and Let Live," "I Am in Love," and the rousing title song.
Greg MacKellan directs, with musical direction by Dave Dobrusky and choreography by Jayne Zaban.
