From the artistic team that brought you the Broadway hit Cabaret, comes Kander and Ebb’s Flora the Red Menace! At the height of the Great Depression, headstrong future fashion designer Flora Meszaros desperately searches for employment, applying for jobs at different department stores in New York until she finds herself at Garrett and Mellick's. There, she meets the handsome but shy Harry Toukarian, a young artist and member of the communist party. Flora’s world is looking up as she gets the job at Garrett and Mellick’s, and realizes she is falling in love with Harry. But now Flora finds herself torn between her career and her commitment to Harry and his cause. Will she be able to balance both sides of her life, or will she ultimately have to choose? Find out in this 1965 treasure by iconic musical theatre duo John Kander and Fred Ebb.
