So, this was a great, fun production that Kris directed in the summer of 2004 in Florida. The Broward Stage produced it, and we had a young cast brought up from NYC. A real classic, My One and Only was a Tommy Tune and Twiggy vehicle that opened on Broadway in the 80’s, and isn’t often produced, due to the challenging demands it places on its cast (and, well, the book is a pretty weak, too).
The staging intention with this was just to create something that was fast and fun and really enjoyable for the cast and audience. Everyone loves tap, and this is a real showcase for some incredible talents.
REVIEWS FOR MY ONE AND ONLY
“Gerswin comes alive … swinging, tapping, cooin’ and singing – the staging is a real highlight … fabulous and seductively cool one minute, a toe-tapping fury the next.” KEVIN JOHNSON, Talkin’ Broadway
