Producers Actor to Spend Summer in Dinner with Friends, Singin' in the Rain and If Love Were All

News   Producers Actor to Spend Summer in Dinner with Friends, Singin' in the Rain and If Love Were All Jeffry Denman, who appeared in the original cast of Mel Brooks' The Producers, has a spring/summer schedule filled with theatre productions.

The actor, who is also a singer, dancer, choreographer and author, is currently starring as Tom in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Donald Margulies play Dinner with Friends at the Portland Stage in Maine. Directed by Michael Rafkin, the production will run through May 15 and also features Ward Duffy, Lisa Barnes and Patricia Dalen. Denman will then head to St. Louis to head the cast of the Muny production of Singin' in the Rain, which is based on the classic 1952 MGM film. The St. Louis Muny — the nation's oldest and largest outdoor theatre — will present the show July 18-24.

Denman will finish the summer in his hometown of Buffalo, directing and choreographing the revue If Love Were All. Denman was the assistant choreographer of the original Off-Broadway production of the revue as well as the standby to star Harry Groener. Sheridan Morley's show examines the relationship between Gertrude Lawrence and her friend and frequent co-star, playwright Noel Coward. The show is being presented in Buffalo by the new musical theatre company MusicalFare Theatre.

In addition to The Producers, Jeffry Denman has also appeared on Broadway in Cats, Dream and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. He is the author of "A Year with The Producers: One Actor's Exhausting But Worth It Journey from Cats to Mel Brooks' Mega Hit." He was also the author and star of Change Partners: A Fred Astaire Tale and recently appeared in White Christmas at San Francisco's Curran Theatre; three productions of Christmas are scheduled for this holiday season in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boston.
