Broadway Leading Men Visit Jazz Central

Entertainment offerings this holiday season will include a reprise production of “Leading Men Don’t Dance”, the hit revue that celebrates and exposes the talents and egos of typical Broadway leading men, their narcissism, hubris, and need for attention, presented by Salt City Center for the Performing Arts at downtown’s Jazz Central theater on December 9th and 10th. Director Bob Brown’s repertoire for this new edition of the show includes almost two dozen songs from the world’s greatest stage productions, including Cabaret, Hunchback of Notre Dame, La Cage aux Folles, My Fair Lady, Aspects of Love, Jesus Christ Superstar, and to celebrate the season, select holiday titles. The leading men, in the necessary alphabetical order to avoid infighting, are Bob Brown, Liam Fitzpatrick, Frank Fiumano, and Gary Troy. All are multi-decade veterans of both local and national touring productions, and local audiences will recognize Troy as Del Grogan from Boardwalk Empire, as well as Bill Snibson, from many past productions of Me and My Girl at Salt City Playhouse.

“Storytelling and hijinks will abound this time around,” according to Bob Brown, who has been reviving this show with a revolving cast of leads since 2002. “This cast may refuse to dance, with the exception of Gary, who we absolutely forbid to dance although he repeatedly tries, but boy can they sing. This year’s audiences are in for a treat, with a holiday flair to boot.”

Two shows only are scheduled, on Saturday, December 9th at 8 pm and a Sunday matinee December 10th at 2 pm. Tickets are $20 general admission and are available at Seating is limited in the cozy Jazz Central venue. Advance reservations are strongly suggested.
