“Showstopping! Pure hallelujah moments!” – Variety
Following successful runs Off-Broadway and in Los Angeles, Cagney is preparing an expanded and enhanced production for Salt Lake City, on its way to its Broadway debut.
The award-winning musical follows the life of the legendary James Cagney from the streets of New York to his rise as one of the brightest stars of Hollywood, from a vaudeville song-and-dance man to the cinema’s original tough guy. The multi-talented cast includes Robert Creighton who originated the role in New York that earned him the 2016 Astaire Award. The cast tap dances through a score that blends original music with classic George M. Cohan favorites, including “Give My Regards To Broadway,” “Grand Old Flag” and “Yankee Doodle Dandy.”
