Set in 1893 Paris, Can-Can tells of a strictly moralistic judge who finds his mettle tested by the sexy proprietess of a nightclub.

Starring in Can-Can are Richard Muenz (Off-Broadway's Zombie Prom, NY City Opera's Wonderful Town and 110 In The Shade) as the judge, and Dawnn [sic] Lewis, of TV's "A Different World" and "Hangin' With Mr. Cooper," as the nightclub owner. Other cast members include Amanda Watkins (Claudine), Stephen Berger (Boris), Tom Flagg (Barriere), Paul Schoeffler (Hilaire). Directing the show is Mark Hoebee; choreographing Dan Mojica.

Can-Can features a book by Abe Burrows and was last staged on Broadway in 1981.
