The production, which will feature a revised book by David Thompson, will be directed by Philip Himberg with choreography by Christopher Pilafian.
Flora, which premiered on Broadway in 1965, tells the story of a spunky young woman determined to make it as a fashion designer during the Depression in New York City, and falls in love with a member of the Communist Party. The musical’s numbers include “Sing Happy” and “A Quiet Thing.”
In related Reprise! news, Emmy Award winner Carol Burnett will appear in a special conversation with Himberg at the Freud Playhouse on Monday, May 12. Actress Vicki Lewis will be the special musical guest for the evening.
