Pop culture is fascinated with how the casting process is realized.
Do you keep up with “American Idol” or “America’s Got Talent?” Pop culture is fascinated with how the casting process is realized—and this show started the craze. You may ask, “Why would I want to see that show again? I saw the tour. I saw it on Broadway. I saw the movie.” And the answer is: because you have always seen it done the same way…until now. Since it arrived on Broadway, this show has been recreated time and time again in spectacular productions around the world. But it has never been reinvented for today’s audience. Every production duplicates the original choreography and environment. Not for us. We will be starting from scratch. Artistic Director Marc Robin will direct and choreograph. “This is a hugely personal show for me,” says Marc. “It represents the story of my own life. I can’t wait to share my vision of it for Fulton audiences. It’s the same script, the same characters and same story; but told a whole new way.”
Conceived and Originally Directed and Choreographed by Michael Bennett
Book by James Kirkwood & Nicholas Dante
Music by Marvin Hamlisch
