Why See Can-Can - The Musical?


An under appreciated gem

The dancehalls and debauchery of Montmartre in the 1890s are the playground of Cole Porter and Abe Burrow's irresistible musical comedy revived by Porchlight Revisits, now in its sixth year. A classic of Broadway, enjoy the fight between showgirls and a prudish judge as the popularity of the titular racy dance takes off! With some of Porter's most beloved songs including 'I Am in Love ','C'est Magnifique' and 'I Love Paris' it's an unabashed celebration of wickedness, love and scandal!

What is the story of Can-Can?

Pistache is a Parisian cafe owner where the biggest draw at her establishment, the Bal du Paradis, is the high-kicking can-can (and its luminous dancers!) A local judge, Ariste Forestier, is so affronted by the new craze that he vows to shut down the Bal du Paris and visits this supposed den of obscenity himself to gather evidence. Whilst there however, he's wrong footed when he falls head over heels for Pistache herself. Will this blossoming romance be enough to save the Bal du Paradis, or will Aristide carry through with his plans anyway and take the pleasure of Paris away for good?

This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.
