Dancing In The Dark

About This Show

Dancing In The Dark is based on the classic MGM musical The Band Wagon, and features a book by Douglas Carter Beane, adapted from the screenplay by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, music by Arthur Schwartz, and lyrics by Howard Dietz. Gary Griffin directs.

Tony Hunter is a Hollywood star with a career on the wane. Jeffrey Cordova is a Shakespearean actor-manager with a taste for high art. Together they team up with a diverse assortment of theatrical personalities to create a new musical that’s strictly “entertainment.” With a score packed with classics like “A Shine on Your Shoes,” that quintessential ode to show business “That’s Entertainment!,” and the title song, Dancing In The Dark, produced by permission of Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, Inc., is the musical comedy that will have audiences dancing in the aisles.
