May 19 - June 21, 2015
The York Theatre Company, in association with Riki Kane Larimer, presents the New York premiere of the award-winning Cagney, a high-stepping, explosive new musical about legendary star and the screen’s greatest tough-guy, James Cagney.
Cagney follows the actor from his humble beginnings in New York City's Lower East Side through his rise as a vaudeville song-and-dance man, to his superstardom in Hollywood. In this insightful and surprising musical journey, a brand new original score filled with showstopping song-and-dance numbers is augmented by George M. Cohan songs.
James Cagney could do it all – sing, dance, play the bad guy, the good guy, the patriot, the gangster. Broadway's Robert Creighton stars, and leads a cast of six in this exciting new musical. Cagney will have audiences cheering.
2 hours and 20 minutes including intermission.
