Brian Childers and Kimberly Faye Greenberg will star in the Off-Broadway production of Danny and Sylvia: The Danny Kaye Musical, to be presented at St. Luke's Theatre, beginning May 2, with an opening set for May 13. Pamela Hall will direct, with choreography by Gene Castle.

This musical love story, with book and lyrics by Robert McElwaine and additional music by Bob Bain, is about Danny Kaye and his wife and creative partner, Sylvia Fine who wrote many of his most famous songs. Many of Kaye's hit songs are featured including "Tchaikovsky," "Anatole of Paris," "Minnie the Moocher" and "Deena."

The creative team will include Annie Lebeaux (musical director), Josh Iacovelli (set), and Graham Kindred (lighting).

Childers received the 2002 Helen Hayes Award for "Outstanding Leading Actor in a Musical" and the 2001 Mary Goldwater Award for his performance in Danny and Sylvia. Greenberg previously played Sylvia Fine in The Danny Kaye Story at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre and Broward Stage Door Theatre.
