George M!

By George M. Cohan, Michael Stewart and Francine Pascal

Directed by Patrick Nims
Music Direction by Daniel Savio & Justin Pyne
Choreography by Marilyn Murray & Melinda Murray

GEORGE M! tells the life story of George M. Cohan, a giant of the American musical theatre who gave us such songs as Yankee Doodle Dandy, Over There, You’re A Grand Old Flag, and Give My Regards to Broadway, and who transformed the Broadway variety show into a book-driven musical, where song and dance actually advance the plot. We follow him over a 60-year period from the vaudeville circuit, to New York, where he starts his 25-year absolute reign of the Broadway stage.  Joe Favalora* (Crazy for You) returns to the Playhouse stage in the title role.
