The Johnny Burke Musical

by Michael Leeds
July 11 - July 29, 2012

Based on the fabulous lyrics of Johnny Burke, this "dazzling, toe-tapping, finger-snapping delight" of a musical revue features over 40 tunes including such classics as "Pennies From Heaven," "What's New," "Imagination," "Misty," "Here's That Rainy Day," and Academy Award-winning "Swinging on a Star." 


The songs, performed by seven singer/actor/dancers, are perfectly woven into scenes and settings, including a 1920's speakeasy, a World War II USO tour and a Paramount pictures studio where Bob Hope and Bing Crosby are filming their "Road Show" pictures.

"Johnny Burke wrote his songs with moonbeams! Songs poured out of him like life-renewing raindrops, glinting like pennies." —NY Times.

Directed and Choreographed by Darlene Zoller, Musical Direction by Colin Britt.

I went with a group and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We left feeling good... wanting to continue dancing and/or singing. It's one of the best kept secrets in WH!
