Give My Regards to Broadway

Act1 Theater presents Give My Regards to Broadway

Combine the greatest show tunes of George M. Cohan with a sparkling story and you have the most entertaining, charming, toe-tapping musical of the season. Dick Foster is opening a Broadway show but is having problems with both money and his leading lady. Enter Mary Collins, an aspiring actress from New Rochelle, plus ’Legs’ Ruby, a Damon Runyon-type bookie who is on the run from the mob. Just as all appears lost, a financial ’angel’ appears with the money to do the show, and Mary gets her big chance at stardom. The play is filled with fascinating character roles, including the ’Donald O’Connor-type’ pianist, Betty, the Virginia belle in the chorus, along with a bevy of chorus girls, gangsters and other assorted characters. The set, (mostly on an empty stage) is a snap. The Cohan songs are among his most memorable: ’Give My Regards To Broadway,’ ’You’re A Grand Old Flag,’ ’Mary’s A Grand Old Name’ and many more. And the cast is completely flexible with room for an additional chorus of any size, plus optional choreography if desired. Here’s a show in the true tradition of 42nd Street and the great Broadway musicals — an audience pleaser for sure.
