When 19-year-old tap-dance whiz kid Jack Donahue runs away from home in 1910 to join a small-time New England vaudeville tour, he comes face to face with floozies, flossies and show people. What plain-speaking, God-fearing Irish mother wouldn't be upset? Meet Mother "Mud" Donahue and son Jack in this charming, taptastic new two-hander!
Book by Jeff Hochhauser, based on Jack Donahue's Letters of a Hoofer to His Ma; Lyrics by Jeff Hochhauser and Bob Johnston; Music by Bob Johnston
