Made it Ma! Top of the World!
“Cagney” Interview with Star and Co-Author Robert Creighton
It would be no exaggeration to say that I was on ‘top of the world’ when I left the Westside Theatre in NYC after seeing the musical, Cagney. The show was exhilarating, and I walked out of the theater on cloud nine, smiling from ear to ear. What an all-around good time it was! And I will add here, that my ‘plus one’ was my mother, who is a Senior Citizen that takes her classic movies very seriously, and who was very worried that the cast was going to ‘botch things up’… Well, I am happy to report that, about 10 minutes into the show, my mother was elbowing me and whispering — wow, the actor who plays Cagney is GREAT!
So, there you have it… From mother and daughter, the reviews are in: thumbs up on the acting, thumbs up on the singing, thumbs up on the dancing, thumbs up on the music — and an exceptional thumbs up for the star and co-author of the show, Robert Creighton.
That said, after the show, I decided that I just had to interview Robert, so I circled back around to the Cagney office to ask if Robert could squeeze in some time for us, and they made it happen. So a Big Thank You to Cagney, and to Robert Creighton who so graciously and generously spent some time chatting with us for this exclusive 20-minute YouTube interview.
