'PAINTING THE CLOUDS' to Premiere at 42nd St Moon, 4/2-20
For the first time in 42nd Street Moon history the company will present a World Premiere: a brand new musical by Greg MacKellan and Mark D. Kaufmann, PAINTING THE CLOUDS WITH SUNSHINE, featuring a parade of sensational songs from the 1930s.
In this snappy new work, the Great Depression is viewed through the prism of the "talking picture musicals" that swept the clouds away in the darkest times, as a jaded newsman and a struggling waitress try to find romance in glittery Tinseltown. Songs include Good Morning Glory, Sing You Sinners, Jeepers Creepers, Marahuana, and Did You Ever See a Dream Walking?
The show runs April 2 - April 20, 2014 (Press Opening: Saturday, April 5, 2014), playing Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7 pm; Fridays at 8 pm; Saturdays at 6 pm; and Sundays at 3 pm. Family/Student Matinee, Saturday, April 12, 1 pm. All performances take place that The Eureka Theatre, 215 Jackson Street, San Francisco. Tickets: $25 - $75. For information or to order tickets call (415) 255-8207 or visit 42ndStMoon.org.
