TACT welcomes Helen Hayes Award-winner Brian Childers back to the stage for An Evening with Danny Kaye. This production, to be performed as part of the Robert M. McElwaine “Reflections” series, pays tribute to one of Broadway and Hollywood’s greatest showmen – Danny Kaye. Stephen Nachamie directs and Jeff Biering is the Musical Director.

Childers performed in numerous incarnations of the story of Danny Kaye in Danny and Sylvia: A Musical Love Story, which was first performed at TACT and garnered him the Helen Hayes Award for Best Actor in a Musical and the Mary Goldwater Award. An Evening with Danny Kaye is now a touring production and has appeared throughout the U.S.

Brian has captured hearts across the nation with his critically acclaimed portrayal of Danny Kaye. Childers becomes Kaye in a way that lets a new generation discover – and an older generation re-visit – a unique performer. The Associated Press wrote: “Childers has a marvelous voice…proves himself to be a continuing major talent” and The Washington Post wrote, “Childers is nothing short of amazing in the role.”

Director Stephen Nachamie began working with Brian Childers on the Danny Kaye shows in 2013, and works as a director and choreographer across the country. Credits include Luck! with Faith Prince, Torch Song Trilogy with Seth Rudetsky, and Driving Miss Daisy with Larry Marshall. His production of A Chorus Line at the Olney Theatre received the 2014 Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Resident Musical. Ed Moser is the Producer and Sound Designer. Lindsey E. Moore is the Stage Manager.

Running time: 1 hour and 45 minutes, including one intermission.
