Musicals Tonight! Adds Herbert and Kern Shows to 2005-2006 Season
The High Life (formerly known as: The Gay Life), with a score by Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz, will run October 18-30. The musical concerns Anatol, a determined bachelor in turn-of-the century Vienna who eventually succumbs to the enchanting Liesl. Next up in the season will be Good News (November 1-13), the Henderson, DeSylva & Brown romp about a football-obsessed collegian who falls for his tutor.
In Spring 2006, the company will present three shows, starting with Mademoiselle Modiste (March 21-April 2), all about a French shopgirl who becomes a stage star in Paris. It will be followed by Oh Lady! Lady!! (April 25-May 2), in which a wedding is interrupted by the arrival of the groom's old flame; the show has music by Jerome Kern, book and lyrics by P.G. Wodehouse and Guy Bolton. Scheduled to close out the season is Let's Face It (May 9-21), by Cole Porter and Dorothy and Herbert Fields, the story of three wives who recruit three eager soldiers to make their philandering husbands take notice of them.
