Benton portrays Bob Hope in the new musical that celebrates James Cagney’s origins as a song and dance man. Benton, a master tapper, is right at home in the musical that overflows with splashy numbers straight out of a USO tour.
Benton will end his run in New York on June 21 and head to the Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma to star as Bert in the Disney classic Mary Poppins, which runs July 7-11.
Benton, who guest directed the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic Oklahoma at WKU in 2012, also recently directed an industry reading of the new musical Sweet Swing at the Marc A Scorca Hall in Manhattan.
