Exclusive Photo Flash: First Look at CAN CAN
Set in 1890s France during the Golden Age period known as La Belle Époque "Beautiful Era", CAN-CAN! is a fun and frivolous new dance musical adapted from Offenbach's original operetta Orpheus in the Underworld and features a 17 strong all-singing, all-dancing cast.
BroadwayWorld has the exclusive look below!
Loosely based on the original book by Sir Arthur Wing Pinero, CAN-CAN! remembers the larger than life performers of the Moulin Rouge who scandalised Paris in the 1890s. Overflowing with joie de vivre, it includes the early stars of the can-can dance: Jane Avril, known as "Queen of the Moulin Rouge" and La Goulue "The Queen of Montmartre", together with the artist Toulouse-Lautrec who promoted his muses to stardom on posters and paintings, and the young Offenbach. They are joined by a glittering line-up of speciality acts, dancers and well-known figures of their day. Features a newly arranged score with a treasure trove of gorgeous operetta melodies by Offenbach, Lehár and others, culminating in the famous can-can dance itself.
