Oscar Hammerstein and Jerome Kern, NYPL Digital Gallery Image ID: TH-26107

Not so much around here, but maybe where you are.

Time is running out to catch the 42nd Street Moon staging of the Jerome Kern – Oscar Hammerstein II musical, Very Warm for May (1939).  Although the show boasts a great score (including the standard, “All the things your are”),  it eked out a run of only 59 performances on Broadway.

The San Francisco company also announced recently that it had received a grant from the NEA to restore the script and score from another Kern-Hammerstein rarity, Three Sisters (1934).

If you can’t make it to the Bay Area now, pencil in a trip for the future.  If you do find yourself in San Francisco this weekend, scurry over to the Eureka Theater, where Very Warm for May runs through May 23.
