Additional Info

Considered the foremost living authority on Cohan, Chip Deffaa has culled from a lifetime of Cohan hits and lesser-known gems and miraculously crams them into this little production. Conceived, written and directed by Deffaa, the show boasts 60 Cohan songs in about two hours, which it delivers at madcap speed. This narrative is told largely through song and dance, interspersed with some fascinating facts about his family, upbringing and career provided by a Narrator who also sings occasionally. This is the perfect vehicle for a small and talented cast of eight to ten, so summer theatres and community groups take note -- nostalgic but fresh, The George M. Cohan Revue might be the perfect revue for your next season. "The George M. Cohan Revue sparkles like the fourth of July fireworks..." ­Cabaret Scenes. "Don't miss The George M. Cohan Revue. It's an ebullient biographical account, miraculously achieved and conceived by hardcore Cohan enthusiast Chip Deffaa" ­The New York Blade. "Deffaa has done the musical theater a great service....Jon Peterson, a gifted singer-dancer-actor with a winsome way...pulls you right into his character and into the show."­TheaterMania.com
