Directed by Tony Award winner Richard Maltby, Jr. (Closer Than Ever, Miss Saigon), the evening of song and story will officially open June 12 for a limited engagement. Just Jim Dale replaces the previously announced production of Bekah Brunsetter's Cutie & Bear, which has been postponed.
Here's how the evening is billed: "In Just Jim Dale, Jim recounts an unequaled lifetime in the theatre and myriad irresistible showbiz tales – from a childhood performing on the British Music Hall stage, through his many Broadway triumphs in Scapino, Barnum and Me and My Girl, to his uproarious experiences narrating all seven Harry Potter audiobooks. Candid and intimate, Just Jim Dale is an unforgettable collection of stories from Jim’s breadth of theatrical work and beloved songs," including "The Colors of My Life," "The Lambeth Walk" and "Georgy Girl."
