Rich Little's Jimmy Stewart & Friends Eyeing Broadway Run
21 Jan 2013
Veteran impressionist Rich Little is hoping to bring his new one-man play Jimmy Stewart & Friends to Broadway. Little's current engagement at the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino has been extended several times.
The evening, which takes audiences on a journey through the life of late film and stage actor Stewart ("Harvey," "It's a Wonderful Life"), is billing the Las Vegas run as a pre-Broadway engagement.
It will play the Las Vegas Hotel's Shimmer Cabaret through April 3.
Jimmy Stewart & Friends also promises Little's impressions of Cary Grant, George Burns, Ronald Reagan, Katherine Hepburn and John Wayne.
Little is known for appearances on "Laugh-In," "The Tonight Show," "Hollywood Squares," "KopyKats," "The Julie Andrews Hour" and his 1970's series "The Rich Little Show."
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
