|Harry Connick Jr. and Kate Shindle star in THE STING|
Psst... want a sure tip?
“You Can’t Trust Nobody” croon the two-bit swindlers in the opening number of the new musical The Sting. But trust me!-this swanky stage adaptation of the award winning film stage production is not-to-be missed. Directed by John Rando, the Broadway-worthy production debuted last night at Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, New Jersey. The sold out performance was every bit worthy of its Academy Award winning roots.
What else is great about this new show? The cast is having as much fun as the audience. Connick and Hewitt go at it in a double-fixed poker game that has them both grinning boyishly. Billie (Kate Shindle), Gondorff’s occasional lover, clearly has a blast staging a raid on a Western Union telegraph office. Luther (Kevyn Morow) even comes back to life so he doesn’t miss out.
Sneak Peak Video:
This limited engagement of The Sting at Paper Mill runs through Sunday, April 29 2018. So go for the suave and silky J. Harrison Ghee and his partner in crime, the “hubba hubba” Harry Conick, Jr. Stay for the rest of the deliciously scandalous performance.
*I, for one, did not know that early 20 century thugs used such New York mainstream Yiddish words such as schlub, mensch and putz.
