The York's Cheek to Cheek: Irving Berlin in Hollywood, which made its world premiere in 2021, returned to Off-Broadway's Theatre at St. Jeans on September 13, 2022. This is an all-singing, all-dancing celebration of the timeless song catalogue of Irving Berlin’s compositions 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 bring new life to these magnificent songs and tell the stories behind the man who made the music that made the movies dance.
Four-time Tony nominee Randy Skinner (42nd Street, Dames at Sea, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, and Ain’t Broadway Grand) directed and choreographed an evening featuring an array of classic Berlin tunes from such classic films as Top Hat, Alexander’s Ragtime Band, Holiday Inn, Easter Parade, White Christmas, and many more!
