CAN-CAN opens Wednesday, July 13, 2005 and plays alternating nights until August 20th. Cole Porter's witty score made this Broadway musical an instant classic when it opened in 1953. The story is set in the year 1893 and tells the tale of La Mome Pistache who is upset about the investigation of her Bal Du Paradis, where the major attraction is the Can-Can. She tries to seduce the highly moral investigating judge Aristide Forestier. The two eventually fall in love and when her case comes to trial, Aristide takes over the defence and wins the acquittal. Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter, Book by Abe Burrows.
