Introducing the awarding-winning Cagney, a high-stepping, explosive new musical about legendary star and the screen’s greatest tough-guy, James Cagney.
Cagney follows 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. In this insightful and surprising musical journey, a brand new original score filled with show-stopping song and dance numbers is augmented by George M. Cohan songs from the classic film Yankee Doodle Dandy and others.
James Cagney was the consummate performer who could do it all – sing, dance, play the bad guy, the good guy, the patriot, the gangster; Broadway veteran Robert Creighton stars, and leads a cast of six in this exciting new musical. Cagney will have audiences cheering.
