Photo Flash: First Look At La Belle Epoque Cast of CAN-CAN!
Set in Paris during the "naughty '90's" (1890s) period known as La Belle Époque "Beautiful Era", CAN-CAN! is a fun and frivolous new musical comedy adapted from Offenbach's original operetta Orpheus in the Underworld.
Loosely based on the original book by Sir Arthur Wing Pinero, CAN-CAN! features the larger than life performers of the Moulin Rouge who scandalised Paris. Features a delicious, newly arranged score with a treasure trove of gorgeous operetta melodies by Offenbach, Lehár and others, culminating in the famous Can-Can itself.
Runs at the Union Theatre in Southwark from 6th February - 9th March, 2019.
