Cagney The Musical
Pre-Broadway Premiere
Pioneer Theatre Company

Jul 7, 2019 | News, Orchestrator

Cagney, the award-winning musical, follows the life of the legendary James Cagney from the streets of New York to his rise as one of the brightest stars of Hollywood, from a vaudeville song-and-dance man to the cinema’s original tough guy. The score blends original music with classic George M. Cohan favorites, including “Give My Regards To Broadway,” “Grand Old Flag” and “Yankee Doodle Dandy.”

The multi-talented cast includes Robert Creighton (Frozen) who originated the title role in the Off-Broadway production. Darrin Baker will co-star (Tarzan) as Jack Warner, Cagney’s chief adversary and CEO of Warner Brothers. The cast also includes Clara Cox (42nd Street), Matt Crowle (Monty Python’s Spamalot), Darren Crago (Holiday Inn), Jeffry Denman (White Christmas), Robert Anthony Jones (Finding Neverland), Charis Leos (The Glass Menagerie), Daniel Plimpton (The Book of Mormon), Hayley Podschun (Wicked), Melissa Schott (White Christmas) and Edward Tolve (Funny Face).
