Product Description

Re-reissue of the debut musical from musical theatre legends John Kander and Fred Ebb, 'Flora the Red Menace', recorded in 1987 and featuring John Kander on piano.

As the writers of three of the biggest stage musical hits of the 20th Century: Cabaret, The Rink and Chicago, it is no surprise that Kander and Ebb's debut musical, which also starred a very young Liza Minnelli, was itself to premiere several hit tunes and future standards of the genre.

Although the original production did not last long on Broadway, three standards came out of the score; "A Quiet Thing", "Sing Happy" and "Dear Love". However in 1987, a sensational new version of the musical premiered to great acclaim and was this time a resounding success. Completely reworked to suit a smaller theatre and with an additional four new songs, with the added bonus of featuring John Kander playing the piano.

Lovely, enchanting show 27 April 2000
By Simon Cross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I know this show really well, having had the pleasure of directing a production of it, here in Brighton in 1998. This cast CD was available in England at the time, and was invaluable in helping us prepare.
The show tells the story of Flora, newly graduated, and always keen to do the right thing. The setting is Depression New York. Flora shares her loft space with a collection of other artists.
At a job interview, she meets shy, intense Harry, a committed Communist. They spend time together, and truly believing she is doing the right thing, Flora joins the Communist party too.
I'll tell you no more of the story, because this CD is peppered with nice amounts of dialogue that propel the story along, but don't hamper listening enjoyment.
This is a small cast show, and so has a typical simple sound. There are some beautiful, sad love songs in the show, as well as some rousing dance numbers, and inspirational Communist numbers.
I don't know how this recording compares with the original Liza version, but it can stand proud on its own.
