Terrific performance by Klea. Her singing was very good and the anecdotes and information she provides about Merman along the way were fun and enlightening. We had a great time!

About the Ticket Supplier: 42nd Street Moon

During the 1920s and early 1930s, the bright lights of Broadway were known as "The 42nd Street Moon," honoring the theatre's most exciting thoroughfare. San Francisco's 42nd Street Moon--named after the popular Broadway sobriquet--is now in its seventeenth season. To date they have presented 95 rarely performed musicals, as well as several revues celebrating the dazzling legacy of the 20th Century's greatest musical theatre composers and lyricists. 42nd Street Moon makes great musicals sing again by finding (and often painstakingly restoring) "lost" classics. Their productions are fully acted, sung, and performed in an intimate production format with choreography, minimal costumes and set decoration, and accompaniment only by piano or small ensemble. In this way the story, characterization, dance, and music can be enjoyed in its purest form at affordable ticket prices for all audiences.
