The musical — which opened Nov. 6. after previews beginning Oct. 12 — stars Annie Golden, Eartha Kitt, Tom Aldredge, Candy Buckley, Robert DuSold, Allen Fitzpatrick, Ken Jennings and Marcus Neville. The show has music by Brian Feinstein, lyrics and libretto by Diana Hansen-Young, direction by Thomas Caruso and musical staging by Matt West. Ken Denison and Carol Fishman produce.

The whimsical musical comedy is about Miriam (Golden), a restless Mormon housewife who leaves her husband to find herself in Paris. There she finds a wacky array of bohemian sorts familiar to anyone who's ever seen "La Boheme," "Gigi" or "An American in Paris."

Mimi Le Duck began its life at upstate New York's Adirondack Theatre Festival in 2004. It then traveled to the New York International Fringe Fesetival that same year, playing the Player's Theatre at 115 MacDougal Street.

New World Stages is at 340 West 50th Street. For tickets call (212) 239-6200.
