New York: Shubert Theatre, circa 1955. Original souvenir play program for the 1953 musical "Can-Can" composed by Cole Porter. This program likely from the mid-1950s touring company production of the play, starring Rita Dimitri, John Tyers, and Ronnie Cunningham.

A self righteous judge threatens to shut down a Can-Can dance hall, but finds more trouble than he expected when he falls in love with the proprietor. Winner of two Tony awards.

Basis for the 1960 film directed by Walter Lang and starring Shirley MacLaine, Frank Sinatra, and Maurice Chevalier.

Twenty pages, saddle stapled, 9 x 11.75 inches. Very Good plus.
