Photo Coverage: Special Guests Sandy Duncan & Don Correia in ALL DANCING! ALL SINGING! at 92Y Lyrics & Lyricists
We're reaching for the moon, putting all our eggs in one basket, dancing cheek to cheek and pouring our hearts into a song, because it's time to face the music and dance! All Dancing! All Singing! is the first Lyrics & Lyricists dance revue, celebrating Irving Berlin's contributions to Hollywood musicals. Artistic director/choreographer Randy Skinner directed a cast of hand-picked young vocalists/dancers -- Darien Crago, Danny Gardner, Drew Humphrey, Kristie Kerwin, Con O'Shea-Creal and Kristen Beth Williams -- who were joined by veterans Sandy Duncan and Don Correia as special guests and Broadwayworld was there. Performances are May 2, 3 and 4. Check out photos from the show below!
"Irving Berlin had a profound effect on how movie musicals were made, with his rhythmic, danceable songs created especially for film," notes Randy Skinner. "The groundbreaking work he did with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers led to some of the most famous dance numbers in film history -- like 'Cheek To Cheek' and 'Let's Face the Music and Dance' -- by marrying song and dance in a brand new way."
The show focuses on the songs by Berlin that premiered in movies and follows his journey through the studios he worked for, such as RKO, Paramount and MGM. The dance numbers feature tap, ballroom, jazz and a couple of the dance crazes Berlin's music started.
