DANNY & SYLVIA Announces New Performance Schedule
"DANNY and SYLVIA: THE DANNY KAYE MUSICAL", the long-running musical at the St. Luke's Theatre, 308 West 46th Street, has a new performance schedule. The show, currently playing Sundays at 4:30 pm, will switch to playing Saturday matinees at 2 PM on Saturday, September 10th. (The final Sunday performance will be this Sunday, Sept 4.)The musical love story, now in it's 3rd year off-Broadway, features book and lyrics by Robert McElwaine and music by Bob Bain. It stars Helen Hayes Award-winner Brian Childers as Danny Kaye and Kimberly Faye Greenberg as his wife and creative partner, Sylvia Fine who wrote many of his most famous songs. Directed by Pamela Hall with choreography by Gene Castle, the musical follows the duo from the time the young undisciplined comic Danny Kaminsky meets aspiring songwriter Sylvia Fine at an audition in the 1930s. Under Sylvia's guidance as mentor, manager and eventually, wife, Kaye rises from improvisational comic to international film star. The musical explores their inspired collaboration and the romance and conflict that made them such a volatile and successful couple. Many of Danny's hit songs are featured including "Tchaikovsky," "Anatole of Paris," "Minnie the Moocher" and "Deenah."
