Yankee Doodle Dandy (Studio Cast Recording) [CD]
The life and times of legendary showman George M. Cohan explode into the 21st century in this sensational new musical.
Set against the colorful backdrop of "old Broadway,” Yankee Doodle Dandy is the story of a of a brash, and rebellious kid who grabbed the American Dream and almost single-handedly invented the Broadway musical.
From the hard-knock days of his family's adventures on the vaudeville circuit to his reign as the star-spangled "King of Broadway," Cohan's life was a roller coaster ride of professional highs, lows, personal triumphs and heartbreak.
With classic songs including “Give My Regards to Broadway,” “You're a Grand Old Flag,” “Harrigan,” and new songs inspired by unfinished Cohan melodies, Yankee Doodle Dandy presents a fresh, contemporary view of a musical theater icon who has influenced every musical on Broadway today.
