Description

David Engel & Tami Tappan Damiano star the West Coast Premier of Never GonnaDance, presented by Musical Theatre West.

Inspired by the classic RKO film musical “Swing Time,” Never Gonna Dance features some of the greatest music by Jerome Kern paired up with legendary lyricists like Johnny Mercer, Ira Gershwin and Oscar Hammerstein. A ne’er-do-well goes to New York to make his fortune doing anything but dancing, so of course the show fills the stage with resplendent dance numbers. Songs include “The Way You Look Tonight,” “A Fine Romance” and “I Won’t Dance.”

Also appearing will be: Harriet Harris (TV’s “Desperate Housewives,” and a Tony award-winning actress for her role in “Thoroughly Modern Millie”) and Henry Polic II (TV’s “Webster” & Mel Brooks’ “When Things Were Rotten”).
