This Tony Award winning musical was directed and choreographed by Gower Champion. It opened on Broadway in 1980, starring Jerry Orbach, Tammy Grimes and Wanda Richert, recreating the classic backstage movie musical of the same name.

Broadway’s longest-running musical revue, this show is a high-octane, high-steppin' celebration of two songwriters – Leiber and Stoller. Their timeless songs transforms classic pop music into compelling musical theater. It received seven Tony nominations and a Grammy Award during its run.
Musical highlights are from the 50’s and 60’s and include “On Broadway”, “Fools Fall In Love”, “Kansas City”, “Love Potion #9”, “Stand By Me”, “I’m A Woman” and many more for your enjoyment.
The spirit of Florenz Ziegfeld lives again as this musical takes you on a bewitching tour of the life and times of the legendary Will Rogers with one dazzling number after another. Rogers’ rope-twirling, homespun humor is more widely appealing amidst sensational production numbers and panache of the original “Ziegfeld Follies” which dazzled audiences during the 1920s & 1930s. This musical opened on Broadway in 1991, starring Keith Carradine and won the Tony Award for Best Musical. Several national touring companies have since presented it in major cities across the country.
Songs include: “Will-A-Mania,” “Give Me Enough Rope,” “Once In A While” and “Never Met A Man I Didn't Like.”
