“We also get a chance to meet new performers, like Danny Gardner in the Fred Astaire role, who maintain a line from the past, seemingly in their bodies.  Gardner has a debonair but daredevil style, thrillingly off-center, that’s a joy to watch even when, as happened at one point, he stumbled.  He’s also got the right balance of sincerity and insincerity to make the book material work.  In that sense he’s not only a find for Encores! but a lesson.” 

-Jesse Green about “Lady, Be Good!”
