Sammy Davis Jr Musical Set To Debut

A new musical based on the life of legendary performer SAMMY DAVIS JR is set to debut on 22 February (06) in Connecticut.

MR BONJANGLES: THE ULTIMATE ENTERTAINER will showcase Davis' many talents and has been endorsed by the late star's estate.

Davis' widow ALTOVISE, who was married to the singer for 20 years, has been working with producers for three years to develop the show.

The show was inspired by Davis' trademark rendition of ballad Mr Bojangles, and will also include an accompanying memorabilia exhibition.

Performers TED L LEVY and DARRELL GRAND MOULTRIE will take turns portraying the CANDY MAN singer.

The show will debut in Uncasville at the Mohegan Sun Casino before embarking on a tour of major casinos across America.
