Lost Musicals to Present Porter's Fifty Million Frenchmen logo
Ian Marshall Fisher
Lost Musicals will present a concert staging of Cole Porter's 1929 musical Fifty Million Frenchmen at 6:30pm on September 17, 24 and 29, and October 8, at Florence Gould Hall (55 East 59th Street). The concert will be directed by Lost Musicals founder Ian Marhsall Fisher and will be the first revival to use the script of the show's original Broadway script by Herbert Fields. Casting will be announced at a later date.

Fifty Million Frenchmen follows a group of well-to-do Americans unleashed in Paris and looking for excitement. The Porter score includes such standards as "You Do Something to Me," "You've Got That Thing," "Find Me a Primitive Man," and "The Tale of the Oyster."

Fisher founded Lost Musicals 17 years ago with the intention of presenting neglected musicals with an emphasis on using the original book. Last year, Lost Musicals presented Porter's Silk Stockings, starring Daniel Gerroll.
