My Vaudeville Man!, a new musical based on the life of tap star Jack Donahue, officially opened Off-Broadway Nov. 17, 2009.

Based on Donahue's "Letters of a Hoofer to his Ma," My Vaudeville Man! features a book by Jeff Hochhauser, music by Bob Johnston and lyrics by Johnston and Hochhauser. The musical, according to press notes, "is the story of a boy born to dance and the mother who fought to keep him home! Karen Murphy and Shonn Wiley star in a musical based on the life of legendary eccentric tap dancer Jack Donahue (played by Ray Bolger on film) and his mother — who fights to keep her son off the wicked vaudeville stage."
