Apparently it never is "Last Chance..."

Jabara and Donna faux fight over
the Oscar for Last Dance
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should....
.
The York Theater - creators of some great and some lousy shows, are prepping a new musical called "Last Dance".
.
Yes, that "Last Dance".
.
It features the music of Paul Jabara - who wrote, Last Dance, Enough is Enough (the Babs / Donna Duet), It's Raining Men - and many more.
.
Book (that is the pieces between the songs) by the guy who wrote Lord of the Rings : The Musical (you didn't miss it, it only played in Toronto on this side of the Atlantic).
Book Adaptation of Lord of the Rings : The Musical
honest
.
And direction by the guy who directed SPIDERMAN: Turn Off The Dark. (Yes the title is spelt that way - so you don't confuse it with the other Spider-Men).  That did surprise me, because after Julie Tamore left I just assumed they threw the pages into a mix master and left the cast go wild.  Who knew?
