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. Childers has performed in numerous version of the story of Danny Kaye, including in Danny and Sylvia: A Musical Love Story, which was first performed at TACT and won him the Helen Hayes Award and the Mary Goldwater Award.

well acted, though some performances were exemplary. Bruce Rauscher as Johnny Friendly and Christopher Herring as Charley Mallow stood out in their intensity and commitment to their roles. Noteworthy were Daniel Corey and Caitlin Shea. The " i could a been a contender" scene worked very well, tho Jack Powers seemed to be missing the necessary intensity and passion to really make it pop.
The American Century Theater will present the stage version of the 1954 movie classic about union violence and corruption on the New York docks, written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Budd Schulberg.
On the Waterfront is not recommended for audiences younger than 12.
