Following last year's presentation of Silk Stockings,
Lost Musicals will again dip into the Cole Porter repertoire for its next show, Fifty Million Frenchmen.
The musical comedy will be performed--by a cast to be announced--at Florence Gould Hall (55 East 59th Street) on September 17th, 24th and 29th, and October 8th, at 6:30 PM each evening.
Ian Marshall Fisher, the founder of the 17 year-old Lost Musicals series, will helm the staged concert, which will feature the original book by Herbert Fields
. The show concerns some Americans in Paris, where they find themselves romantically inspired by the City of Light.
The show is best known for Porter standards and semi-standards such as "You Do Something to Me," "Tale of the Oyster," and "Find Me a Primitive Man." The show opened in November of 1929 at the Lyric Theatre for a run of 254 performances. Fifty Million Frenchmen
originally starred William Gaxton, Helen Broderick, Betty Compton and more.
