Nine-time Tony Award winner Tommy Tune will return to the New York stage in a special Encores! presentation of the George and Ira Gershwin musical Lady, Be Good.
Tune is joined by Douglas Sills, Colin Donnell, Danny Gardner, Jeff Hiller, Erin Mackey, Patti Murin, Richard Poe, Jennifer Laura Thompson and Kirsten Wyatt.
Lady, Be Good, according to press notes, “tells the story of a penniless brother (Danny Gardner) and sister (Patti Murin) who crash a garden party in hopes of some quick nourishment. They resolve to marry for money, but love gets in the way, as it usually does. Before true love wins out, they encounter Mexican gangsters, crooked lawyers, wealthy socialites, and a song-and-dance man with fascinating rhythm (Tommy Tune).” Here’s a look at the Encores! cast:
