As previously announced, workshop performances of the musical, which features a book by Shaun McKenna (Lord of the Rings The Musical), will be offered Sept. 20-23 in NYC.
Helmed by Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark director and creative consultant Philip Wm. McKinley, Last Dance, according to producers, "is a tale from the '70s when enough was never enough. A joyful celebration of disco dreams, glitter balls and dangerous delights. It's a story about a time, not so long ago, when a man wrote songs for the woman he thought he'd never lose… 'Disco Forever!'"
Morrow, a founding member of the theatrical troupe Naked Angels, is best known for his work on the television series "Northern Exposure," for which he received three Golden Globes and two Emmy Award nominations. His television credits include "Numb3rs," "The Whole Truth," "Entourage," "CSI: NY" and "The Day Lincoln Was Shot," among others. He has appeared on stage in The Boys of Winter and the West End production of Birdy.
Other members of the creative team include choreographer Carol Schuberg (Meet Me in St. Louis) and musical director Wendy Cavett (Mamma Mia!).
