Cheek to Cheek: Irving Berlin in Hollywood is an all-singing, all-dancing celebration of the most famous songs that Irving Berlin composed for the silver screen. Mr. Berlin understood the impact dance had on the public, and his melodies, rhythms, and lyrics reflected his love of that art form. Six spectacular performers will showcase these magnificent songs and will also tell the stories behind the man who made the music that made the movies dance.

Four-time Tony nominee Randy Skinner (42nd StreetDames at SeaIrving Berlin’s White Christmas, and Ain’t Broadway Grand) directs and choreographs an evening featuring an array of classic Berlin tunes from such classic films as Top HatAlexander’s Ragtime BandHoliday InnEaster ParadeWhite Christmas, and many more! Cast will be announced shortly.

The York Theatre is currently producing at The Theatre at St. Jeans (150 East 76th Street & Lexington Avenue) due to a January 2021 flood from a city water main break that destroyed their home of 30 years at Saint Peter’s Church.

Cheek to Cheek will play the following weekly performance schedule:
Tuesday thru Saturday at 7:30 PM, with 2:30 PM performances Saturday & Sunday

Run time: Approximately 85 minutes with no intermission.
