I had a blast doing CURTAINS. Such a great company and everyone made me feel so welcome. So sad to see that show close.
I just played The Gypsy King in a reading of EVER AFTER, directed by Doug (Doubt) Hughes. It’s a charming new musical with an outstanding score, based on the 1999 film, Ever After.
Next up YANKEE DOODLE – I’m pulling out the tap shoes to play George M. Cohan in a new version of his Broadway story at The Ordway Center in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I love playing this part; he’s the original song and dance man. And it’s the only show I ever did where the audience stood at the end of act one!
I am now set to play ‘Lundie’ in the Broadway bound revival of BRIGADOON which will be heading to Boston’s Colonial Theatre mid-October. Rob Ashford (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Curtains) who’s given me practically every job I ever had, is directing and choreographing. John Guare, (Six Degrees of Separation) is reworking the book. Brigadoon is now “a pacificist town that ‘disappeared’ in 1939 because its inhabitants didn’t want to live in a world torn apart by war.” Then on to Broadway early 2009.
