Renowned song and dance man Danny Kaye's work spanned film, television, stage and music until his death in 1987. Now, as part of a nationwide tour, Brian Childers brings the great entertainer back to life in An Evening with Danny Kaye. This tribute to one of Broadway and Hollywood's greatest showmen is a treat for those who already love Kaye's work, as well as those who are "meeting" him for the first time.
