Flora, the Red Menace
Book by David Thompson, Music by John Kander, Lyrics by Fred Ebb

The William Inge Memorial Theatre

Flora, the Red Menace was the very first musical collaboration of the celebrated songwriting team behind such later hits as Chicago and Cabaret. Set against the Bohemian world of artists and activists in Depression-era New York, Flora tells of an optimistic and high-spirited young woman whose love life is complicated by the Communist Party. Our heroine is an out-of-work fashion illustrator who falls in love with an intense young artist who convinces her to join the Party. She comes to regret that decision after landing a good-paying job and promptly losing it when copies of The Daily Worker are found in her locker. Based on the stripped-down, 1987 Off-Broadway revival, this comic musical will be presented in the intimate setting of the Inge Theatre.

Directed & Choreographed by John Staniunas
Musical Direction by Ryan McCall
Scenic & Lighting Design by Pamela Rodríguez-Montero
Costume Design by Shannon Smith-Regnier
