Theatre Review: “Honeymoon In Vegas”

December 31, 2014

“Honeymoon in Vegas,” now in preview performances at The Nederlander Theatre (208 West 41st Street), is a thrilling, entertaining show. It also makes a good statement about relationships and especially about commitments.

With Tony Danza leading the way, “Honeymoon in Vegas” combines nice music, superb dancing and well choreographed numbers. This is evident throughout the just over two hour performance.

Mr. Danza, of television fame in “Taxi” and “Who’s The Boss,” is an excellent “song and dance” man, who fits well in the role of “businessman”/ gambler, “Tommy Korman.”

The character “strikes” an “agreement” with “Jack,” played adeptly by Rob McClure. “Jack” surely has commitment issues, and McClure, a Tony Award nominee, is also well cast and gives a fine performance.

Brynn O’Malley as Jack’s girlfriend of five years, “Betsy,” who is awaiting marriage, and Nancy Opel as Jack’s deceased mother, who says and brilliantly sings “Never Get Married,” are also great.

The entire cast shines. Mr. Danza, interviewed this past Sunday on the excellent year end edition of CBS Sunday Morning, is a superb entertainer. This is a landmark showing for him.

I am glad he is getting this opportunity on Broadway and so glad I saw “Honeymoon in Vegas.” Go see it for yourselves.
