Only a few years back, Harry Groener and Vanessa Williams were next-door neighbors on Broadway (he in Crazy for You at the Shubert, she in Kiss of the Spider Woman at the Broadhurst). Now they're "Together Again!" co-starring in Shut Up and Dance, a film about competitive ballroom dancing in Austin, TX. Sort of a Latino-flavored Strictly Ballroom, sez Groener. Randa Haines, who directed Marlee Matlin to an Oscar for the Pulitzer Prize-winning Children of a Lesser God, starts shooting the end of May.
