Frank Loesser's Last Musical Pleasures and Palaces, Unseen Since 1965, Will Play Texas

via Playbill.com:   Frank Loesser's final stage musical Pleasures and Palaces, the 1965 work that closed out-of-town prior to an anticipated Broadway debut, will be staged by the Lyric Theatre of Irving, TX, in early 2013.

Originally staged by Bob Fosse (Chicago, Pippin), Loesser's musical about Russian intrigue and romance, was co-authored with Sam Spewack (based on his play Once There Was a Russian)... It has not been staged since the ill-fated Detroit premiere. Tony winner Loesser's works also include Guys and Dolls, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, The Most Happy Fella, Greenwillow and Where's Charley?

Lyric Stage regularly produces Broadway classics with restored or full original Broadway orchestrations. Presented Jan. 24-27, Pleasures and Palaces will feature a 40-piece orchestra playing Philip J. Lang's original orchestrations. Ann Nieman will direct and choreograph the 43-person cast. Jay Dias will musical direct.
