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.

Teatro de la Luna was never as good as GALA, but it could sometimes pull off a decent play. But Turkish Tango is, frankly, just awful. It doesn't help that the main characters are supposed to be Argentines and the actors can't do a decent Argentine accent, or, for that matter, act. Or that the theater is in a middle school's second auditorium, and has no ventilation.

The actors were good, but the script was quite boring. Most importantly, I found the script offensive for Muslims (they spent half of the show making fun of how Muslims pray on the floor). I was shocked and saddened at how politically incorrect...continued
This production is recommended for those age 15 and older.
