The original production "Front Page Flo" is the Bloomington Playwrights Project's second show of its 2017-2018 Mainstage Season.
The musical will debut at the Bloomington Playwrights Project on Dec. 1 and run through Dec. 16, according to a press release from the Bloomington Playwrights Project.
"Front Page Flo" takes place in post-World War II New York City, where a reporter named Flo is in search of the big story to make her career, according to the press release. Flo finds that she might be on to something when she hears a Soviet spy is in Manhattan.
The musical follows Flo's journey to unveil the scoop and discover much more. The music in the show embraces a golden-era Broadway sound with tap dancing to match, according to the press release.
"'Front Page Flo' has been a joy to develop and create these past two years," writer and director George Pinney said in the press release. "Centering in the style of the golden age of musicals, the production celebrates the foibles of the human condition in a mad-capped musical comedy full of terrific songs, mystery and romance, tap dancing, as well as a 'dream ballet.'"
