Dick Vosburgh and Frank Lazarus' Tony Award-winning musical will play the Massachusetts theatre institution July 7-19. Denman, who currently stars as young Hollywood movie executive Preston in the world premiere of The Gershwins' An American in Paris, will stars alongside Broadway veteran Michael McGrath (Spamalot, Little Me) as well as Jonathan Brody (Titanic), Matt Castle (Company), Susan Cella (Me and My Girl), Erin Crouch (42nd Street), Michelle Dyer, Ellyn Marie Marsh and Jonathan Richard Sandler.
James Brennan (Crazy for You, 42nd Street) directs the production with choreography by cast member Matt Castle. Additional creative duties will be announced shortly.
The musical, composed of two one-acts, "takes place in the lobby of Grauman's Chinese Theatre in the 1930s where the ushers pay tribute to the songs and stars of that magical Hollywood era," while the other "takes place in the Pavlenko mansion in the Ukraine, where madcap lunacy and Marx Brothers reign supreme."
