The Broadway musical Swing! will perform its popular dance duel, "Throw That Girl Around"/"Show Me What You Got" for the first time outside the St. James Theatre on March 10, when they appear on the "Today Show." Production sources report that Swing! stars Everett Bradley, Casey MacGill and The Gotham City Gates (Swing!'s band), will lead dancers Beverly Durand, Aldrin Gonzalez, Carlos Sierra Lopez and Maria Torres through the popular number written by Everett Bradley.
No word, however, as to whether the dance duel between Beverly Durand and Aldrin Gonzalez, doing West Coast swing, and Maria Torres and Carlos Sierra-Lopez, doing Latin swing, might lead to any footwork by "Today" hosts Matt Lauer, Katie Couric, Al Roker or Ann Curry.
If they do join in, the NBC cast might warm up and follow directions carefully: In the past, Swing! dancers, comprising world-class swing, Lindy Hop and Broadway hoofers, have made no bones about the rigors and challenges of doing the show. News persons beware!
