Donna McKechnie Remembers Dancing With Fred Astaire
The ''Chorus Line'' Tony winner sings about that time she tripped the light fantastic with the iconic performer.
Once upon a time, Donna McKechnie had the chance to dance with Fred Astaire. It's a moment she hasn't forgotten, and one that comes up in an August 6 and 9 return engagement of her 54 Below concert, Same Place: Another Time. It happened when she was doing A Chorus Line in Los Angeles, and Astaire came to see the show. What happens next is a dream come true. Here, she tells that story while singing a song fittingly titled "Fred Astaire," penned by Ann Hampton Callaway and Lindy Robbins.
