No one in show business ever did quite so many different things quite so well as the dynamic George M. Cohan (1878-1942). The quintessential “self-made man,” he rose from poverty to become an outstanding entertainer, songwriter, playwright, director, and producer. He wrote or co-wrote more than 50 shows. He produced or co-produced more than 80 shows. He penned hundreds of irresistible songs, remaking the American songbook in the process. (And a century later, everyone still knows such spirited Cohan numbers as “Give My Regards to Broadway,” “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy,” “Harrigan,” “You’re a Grand Old Flag,” and “Over There.”) The most popular musical-comedy man of his day, he made America – not Europe – the pace-setter for musical theater. He gave Broadway its beat, its pace, its snap. And was the first member of his profession ever honored with a Congressional Medal.
ASCAP award-winner Chip Deffaa’s acclaimed solo show George M. Cohan Tonight! brings back Cohan in all of his glory.
Hailed by the New York Times as “brash, cocky, and endlessly euphoric,” George M. Cohan Tonight! has delighted audiences all across the U.S. - not to mention places like England, Scotland, and Korea.
