About This Show

The life and times of legendary showman George M. Cohan explode onstage in this sensational world premiere production. Set against the colorful backdrop of “Old Broadway,” it’s the show-biz saga of the brash, colorful, cocky, charismatic, and uncompromising character who almost single-handedly invented the Broadway musical. From the hard-knock days of his family’s adventures on the vaudeville circuit to his reign as the star-spangled “King of Broadway,” Cohan’s life was a roller coaster ride of professional highs and lows and personal triumphs and heartbreak. With classic songs – including “Give My Regards to Broadway,” “You’re a Grand Old Flag” and “H-A-R-R-I-G-A-N” – this new show presents a fresh, contemporary view of a celebrated musical theater icon.
