Flora the Red, Drama Production this November at Saint Rose

The Drama Program fall production is the musical Flora the Red Menace, which features words and music by John Kander and Fred Ebb. In their first Broadway collaboration, Kander and Ebb (the team responsible for CabaretChicago, and Kiss of the Spider Woman, among many other classics) look back on 1930s New York City.

Flora Meszaros (a role originated by a 19-year-old Liza Minellli) is a promising art student who finds her first job and first love in Depression-era Greenwich Village.  Her breakup with a leftist painter leaves her sadder but wiser and with the realization that she will go on to do great things.
