"You Never Know"

2008 Cabaret Production

The 2008 edition of Footlite’s annual cabaret production will be “You Never Know,” with performances January 18, 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27, 2008. Michael Moyer will direct this intimate, romantic musical based on the play “Candlelight” by Siegfried Geyer, Karl Farkas and Robert Katscher, as adapted by Rowland Leigh and Paul Lazarus. The production’s music and lyrics are by Hoosier Cole Porter.

Set in Paris in 1929, the musical’s story takes place one summer evening in Baron Rommer’s elegant penthouse suite at the Hotel Ritz. The baron and his butler switch identities so that the butler can pursue a woman he believes is a lady of much higher class. It turns out that she is actually a maid in the service of Mme. Baltin, a high society figure who has captured the baron’s heart. Her jealous husband and an actress headlining at the Follies Bergere round out the cast of this door slamming farce with wonderful songs and dancing.
