After More Than 500 Performances, Off-Broadway's Cagney to End Run
The production stars Robert Creighton in the title role of James Cagney.
The off-Broadway musical Cagney will conclude its run at the Westside Theatre on May 28, having played a total of 502 performances. The production began its run on March 16, 2016, before its official opening on April 3.
Cagney features a book by Peter Colley (The Donnelly) and music and lyrics by Robert Creighton and Christopher McGovern (Fame) that blend with classic George M. Cohan favorites. The musical tells the story of legendary stage and screen star James Cagney, following the actor from his humble beginnings in New York City's Lower East Side through his rise as a vaudeville song-and-dance man to his superstardom in Hollywood. The show is directed by Bill Castellino, with choreography by Joshua Bergasse.
Cagney's six-member cast stars Broadway's Robert Creighton (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) in the title role, with Jeremy Benton (Irving Berlin's White Christmas), Danette Holden (Annie), Josh Walden (Ragtime), Ellen Zolezzi (Seussical), and Bruce Sabath (Company).
