Entitled From Russia, With Love (42nd Street Plays Moscow), Scheer will present his new show Jan. 11, 2004, at the Knitting Factory. According to production notes, "In October of 2002, theatre history was made when the song and dance extravaganza 42nd Street became the first American musical to open for an extended run in Moscow. The tap shoes never arrived. There was no dress rehearsal. A neighboring theatre was seized by Chechen rebels. Cast member Joshua Scheer tells all about it." From Russia, With Love features direction by Kathy Brier with musical direction by Eddie Guttman. Show time is 7 PM.
Born and raised in New York City, Joshua Scheer has appeared on the New York stage in Mindfreak, The Magic of Frederick Loewe and George M! His other theatrical credits include Camelot; You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown; My One and Only; Singin' in the Rain; La Cage aux Folles; and Damn Yankees.
