NEVER GONNA DANCE BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: December 4, 2003
Synopsis: The show is based on the RKO motion picture Swing Time and a story by Erwin Gelsey. The show begins with John "Lucky" Garnett, a professional dancer, coming to New York in order to prove his worth to his fiancee's father by attempting to earn $25,000 by any means except dancing. Inspired by the energy and rhythms of the city, he of course can't keep still, and goes on to dance his way through hilarious adventures with his fine new romance, the dance teacher, Penny Carroll.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"There was a time -- long, long ago, my children -- when Hollywood was the place where good musicals went to veg out. A racy, vivacious Broadway show like ''Pal Joey'' or ''Kiss Me, Kate'' would rush to California for a glamorous big-screen makeover and wind up with a lobotomy. Sure, there were exceptions. But more often than not, what finally lumbered into movie theaters resembled the neutered, empty-eyed Jack Nicholson at the end of ''One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.''
