Nora Mae Lyng, a veteran of Forbidden Broadway, stars as Mae West in Mae West at the El Fey Club Tonight at Penguin Rep in Stony Point, New York, running Nov. 22-Dec. 13 after starting previews Nov. 19. Lyng replaced Sally Mayes, Tony nominated for She Loves Me, who left earlier this month because of "artistic differences."
Mae West, with songs by Ellen May Schwartz and Bonnie Lee Sanders and a book by Joe Brancato, is set in a New York nightclub the eve of West's departure for Hollywood, where she would become an internationally acclaimed star and sex symbol.
Don Goodspeed co-stars. Brancato will direct. For information, call (914) 786-2873.
