Sheila and Hughes Potiker Theatre
book by Tom Cone
Set in the Great Depression, this darkly comic, highly theatrical musical tells the tale of George, an 8-year-old with a remarkable affinity for tap dancing. Taken under the wing of a vaudeville veteran, the youngster learns to his horror he's possessed by the spirit of Lou, his mentor’s vengeful late partner! While George comes of age, a climactic battle ensues over his mind, body and soul, With a stage-full of characters and 14 quirkily entertaining songs all performed by BD Wong in a virtuoso performance, Herringbone spins a story that will fascinate and haunt you.
