Dancing in the Dark, starring Scott Bakula opens March 4th in San Diego's Old Globe Theater.
As reported by Fox6 San Diego, Dancing in the Dark opens this week with Scott Bakula playing the lead role of Tony Hunter, a Hollywood star whose career is waning and who returns to New York to create a new musical. The musical is based on the movie The Band Wagon. It is directed by Gary Griffin and choreographed by Warren Carlyle.
Discussing his character Tony's motivations for returning to New York, Bakula said, "He started there and it's about him rediscovering his roots and rediscovering what makes him happy and what creatively makes him happy."
The Old Globe has a reputation for success. "The Old Globe has this incredible reputation of doing new work and new work that is successful new work and new work that moves on," said Bakula. Twenty-one of the musicals that have debuted there have made it to Broadway.
Bakula hopes that the San Diego audiences are just as excited by the production as the cast is. "...When you're working with an audience...it's a team kind of situation. It's a remarkable experience and it's the ultimate in performing."
