Cheek to Cheek: Irving Berlin in Hollywood, a song and dance celebration of the songs Irving Berlin composed for the silver screen, will return to The York Theatre Company September 13–October 16 for a limited engagement.
Directed and choreographed by four-time Tony nominee Randy Skinner (42nd Street, Dames at Sea, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, Ain’t Broadway Grand), the production previously played the Off-Broadway venue in 2021. Skinner received a 2022 Lucille Lortel nomination for his choreography work on the initial engagement.
Casting information will be released at a later date.
Cheek to Cheek, which has a book by Barry Kleinbort (13 Things About Ed Carpolotti) and music direction by David Hancock Turner (York’s Desperate Measures), will also tell the stories behind the man who made the music that made the movies dance. Theatregoers can expect to hear Berlin tunes from such classic films as Top Hat, Alexander’s Ragtime Band, Holiday Inn, Easter Parade, and White Christmas.
