Clarke Peters will direct Giles Terera in a workshop production of Leslie Bricusse’s musical Sammy.
The workshop will be presented on October 31 to an invited audience of producers, theatre owners and investors.
It is being produced by Anthology Theatre Productions and Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment.
Sammy celebrates the life of performer Sammy Davis Jr., with producers hoping to mount a full production of the show in 2020, which will mark what would have been Davis Jr.’s 95th birthday. The musical has previously had a short tun in San Diego, but a statement from producers said Clarke would be “reimagining” the show.
Mike Dixon is the musical supervisor for the production.
