Photo Flash: First Look at Clifton Oliver, Jonas Cohen and More in Arkansas Rep's PAL JOEY

A re-conceived version of the Rodgers & Hart 1940 classic Pal Joey is now running at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre. After an enthusiastically received concert reading at Pasadena's prestigious Boston Court Theatre last year, Director Peter Schneider was encouraged by the esteemed Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization to move forward with a fully realized production. Check out a first look at the production shots below!
Edgy for its time, Pal Joey is perhaps best known for the film version starring Frank Sinatra. Peter Schneider's production breathes new life into this classic tale and brings new relevance to the story that unfolds amidst this richly romantic score.

Peter Schneider is the Tony-Award-winning producer of the internationally acclaimed Broadway musical, The Lion King. He produced the award-winning documentary, "Waking Sleeping Beauty," about Disney Animation from 1984 - 1994, and served as President of Animation and Chairman of the Studio for the Walt Disney Company for 17 years.

The new score has been enhanced with other memorable songs from the Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart catalog, such as "The Lady Is a Tramp," "Sing for Your Supper," and "Glad To Be Unhappy" intermingled with gems from the original 1940 show like "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" and "I Could Write a Book."
