Tony winner, two-time Grammy winner and Oscar nominee Jim Dale’s solo show Just Jim Dale begins previews off-Broadway on May 15. Directed by Tony winner Richard Maltby, Jr, the limited engagement for the Roundabout Theatre Company is scheduled to open at the Laura Pels Theatre on June 12.
In Just Jim Dale, Dale recounts an unequaled lifetime in the theater and myriad irresistible showbiz tales—from a childhood performing on the British Music Hall stage, through his many Broadway triumphs in Scapino, Barnum and Me and My Girl, to his experiences narrating all seven Harry Potter audiobooks. The show is a collection of stories from Dale's breadth of theatrical work and songs, including “The Colors of My Life” “The Lambeth Walk” and “Georgy Girl.”
The Just Jim Dale creative team feature set design by Anna Louizos, lighting design by Rui Rita, sound design by Carl Casella with Mark York as pianist and co-arranger and musical direction by Aaron Gandy.
