Song Man Dance Man
The West Coast Premiere of the Off-Broadway one-man show!
If theatre is your thrill, then the rush that you get from that rare creature, the all-round entertainer, thrills you to bits! Jon Peterson, Emcee from Broadway's revival of CABARET and Drama Desk Nominee for his portrayal of George M Cohan in the off-Broadway production GEORGE M. COHAN TONIGHT! brings to you seven subjects for this intimate musical revue; seven extraordinary artists who epitomize the true package. They not only made music, but each, in their own individual way, created another world.
* George M. Cohan, who invented the song and dance man and the Broadway musical.
* Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, who brought their own unique excellence to revolutionize the movie musical.
* Donald O'Connor, perhaps the freshest talent of them all, who struggled to gain his rightful place in Hollywood.
* Sammy Davis Jr, whose undeniable talent and troubled soul put him right at the top and made him fight for equality.
* Bobby Darin, who transformed himself from 50's pop-star to sophisticated concert artist, only to have his career cut short by a heart ravaged by childhood illness.
* Anthony Newley, whose eccentric Cockney brilliance and throbbing
emotional style shook the musical theatre world.
These men stood alone and entertained. This small, musical revue is merely an acknowledgment.
