The producers of the long-running off-Broadway musical
“DANNY and SYLVIA: The Danny Kaye Musical” announced a special promotion during August, 2010. If you can prove your name is either DANNY or SYLVIA, you will receive two tickets for the price of one. Just bring your proof of ID to the St. Luke’s Box Office at least 30 minutes prior to any performance in August. The new musical love story starring Helen Hayes Award-winner Brian Childers as legendary entertainer Danny Kaye and Kimberly Faye Greenberg as his wife and creative partner, Sylvia Fine, continues at St. Luke’s Theatre, 308 West 46th Street, NYC. Performances are Mondays at 7 PM and Saturdays at 5 PM.
Directed by Pamela Hall with choreography by Gene Castle, the musical follows the duo from the time the young undisciplined comic Danny Kaminsky meets aspiring songwriter Sylvia Fine at an audition in the 1930s. Under Sylvia’s guidance as mentor, manager and eventually, wife, Kaye rises from improvisational comic to international film star. The musical explores their inspired collaboration and the romance and conflict that made them such a volatile and successful couple. Many of Danny’s hit songs are featured including “Tchaikovsky,” “Anatole of Paris,” “Minnie the Moocher” and “Deenah.”
“DANNY and SYLVIA: THE DANNY KAYE MUSICAL” opened off-Broadway on Wednesday, May 13th, 2009 and recently celebrated its one year anniversary.
