The York Theatre Company presents the New York premiere of the awarding-winning Cagney, a high- stepping, explosive new musicalabout legendary star and the screen's greatest tough-guy, James Cagney. Cagney follows the actor from his humble beginnings in New York City's Lower East Side through his rise as a vaudeville song-and-dance man to his superstardom in Hollywood. In this insightful and surprising musical journey, a brand new original score filled with show-stopping song and dance numbers is augmented by George M. Cohan songs. Cagney was the consummate performer who could do it all - sing, dance, play the bad guy, the good guy, the patriot, the gangster; Broadway's Robert Creighton leads a cast of six in this exciting new musical. Cagney will have audiences cheering.
The creative team includes James Morgan (sets), Amy Clark (costumes), Brian Nason (lighting), Janie Bullard (sound), Mark Pirolo (projections), and Carol Hanzel (casting). The Production Stage Manager is Larry Smiglewski with Assistant Stage Manager Arthur Atkinson.
