Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Before Cabaret, before Chicago, the legendary musical theater duo Kander and Ebb created Flora the Red Menace. Flora Meszaros is a headstrong individualist taking the world on by storm. As an up-and-coming fashion designer in the 1930’s, Flora leads an artists’ cooperative of bohemian artists struggling to find work during the Great Depression. She falls in love with a quirky and charming organizer for the communist party who enlists her to unionize her co-workers. With a healthy dose of humor and skepticism, this musical pokes a fun at all those who take themselves and their causes too seriously. Filled with show stopping numbers and delightful lyrics, Flora the Red Menace promises to be a unique and exciting version of this rarely produced gem.
