Will Gartshore To Replace Dvorsky In Signature's 'Lost Songs'
Signature Theatre today announced that Will Gartshore will replace George Dvorsky in The Lost Songs of Broadway 1940s - 1950s, a run of cabaret performances playing in The ARK Theatre September 3 - 6.
Mr. Gartshore joins Eleasha Gamble, Jobari Parker-Namdar, and Kimberly Sherbach (please note spelling of SHERBACH) in performing a collection of terrific tunes from some of history's forgotten mid-century musicals. With music director Gabriel Mangiante on the piano, the four terrific singer-actors will mesmerize audiences with the timeless music of Cole Porter, Jule Styne, Kurt Weill, Rodgers and Hart, Harburg and Arlen, and more. Even though shows like High Button Shoes, Cabin in the Sky, Jamaica, Mexican Hayride, One Touch of Venus, and St. Louis Woman have long since disappeared from the stage, they render up some amazing musical treasures for this memorable cabaret directed by Michael Baron.
Tickets for all shows are $30 and are available by calling Ticketmaster at (703) 573-7328, visiting www.signature-theatre.org, or at the Signature Theatre Box Office.
