'Can-Can' revival from Pasadena Playhouse heading to Broadway

The revival of Cole Porter's "Can-Can" that opened at the Pasadena Playhouse more than five years ago has come back to life and is now aiming for Broadway. Producers said Thursday that they are hoping to bring the high-kicking musical to New York in the spring of 2014. Neither a theater nor a opening date has been announced. The revival is being produced by Jonathan Burrows. "Can-Can" debuted in Pasadena in the summer of 2007. The production was directed by David Lee, who is also expected to direct the show when it arrives on Broadway. Organizers said they will hold a workshop production in New York in October.
