Exclusive Podcast: 'Behind the Curtain' Welcomes NEWSIES, BONNIE AND CLYDE Director, Jeff Calhoun
We're gonna whomp, and stomp, and whoop it up all night with the legendary director/choreographer Jeff Calhoun. From his days as a hoofer in SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS, MY ONE AND ONLY, and THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS film, to helming the Broadway revivals of GREASE, Deaf West's BIG RIVER, JEKYLL AND HYDE and the original Broadway companies of BROOKLYN, BONNIE AND CLYDE, and NEWSIES, Jeff tells all to Rob and Kevin.
Jeff pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how he befriended Tommy Tune, what it was like documenting the life of the infamous John Kenley, and why GREASE '94 started with a sock-hop!
