This affectionate spoof of the grand and glorious Busby Berkeley movie musicals of the 1930s is a singing, tap dancing delight. Small town girl Ruby arrives in the Big Apple with her tap shoes in her suitcase, a song in her heart, and a burning desire to be a Broadway star. Just off the bus she meets and falls in love with Dick, a sailor who just happens to be a song writer with aspirations of his own. They can sing a lovely duet, but can they save a Broadway show when calamity strikes?
Heather Ayers, who most recently appeared on Broadway in On A Clear Day You Can See Forever with Harry Connick, Jr. will star as Mona. Joining her are Tessa Grady (seen locally in The Sound of Music and Happy Days) as Ruby, Shannon Mari Mills (from the national tour of Cathy Rigby is Peter Pan) as Joan, and L.A. favorites Dink O’Neal (The Colony’s Grand Hotel, On the Twentieth Century) as Hennesey & the Captain, Jeffrey Scott Parsons (Glory Days, Kiss of the Spider Woman), and Justin Michael Wilcox (Reprise’s Cabaret, How to Succeed, A Funny Thing...Forum) as Lucky.
The design team includes Stephen Gifford (scenic design), Jared A. Sayeg (lighting design), A. Jeffrey Schoenberg (costume design), Drew Dalzell (sound design), MacAndMe (props design & set dressing).
There are question-and-answer talkbacks after the performances on Friday, April 20 and Thursday, May 3. For tickets visit www.colonytheatre.org or call the box office at 818/558-7000 x 15. The Colony Theatre is located at 555 North Third Street (at Cypress) adjacent to the Burbank Town Center Mall.
