I Won't Dance - Steve Ross Plays and Sings Fred Astaire

Germano's - Baltimore

Sunday 4/10
Brunch show – 12:00 noon
New York cabaret great, Steve Ross, brings his fabulous off-Broadway show to Baltimore, celebrating the songs of that dapper genius, Fred Astaire.
The audience will be treated to such musical treasures as Puttin' on the Ritz, Stepping Out With My Baby, Dancing in the Dark, Night and Day, I Guess I'll Have To Change My Plan and of course Cheek to Cheek.
The show will also include songs that the great dancer himself wrote (Not My Girl, City of the Angels) and will tell the story of how a determined young mother from Omaha brought Fred and his older sister Adele to Manhattan around the turn of the 20th century and would live to see them become one of the pre-eminent "Kiddie" acts on the vaudeville circuit. That duo dissolved in the early Thirties and Fred went on to be, in the words of no less a superstar than Baryshnikov, "The greatest dancer of the Twentieth Century!"
The audience hears about his solo appearances on Broadway and then his unforgettable and inimitable film career wherein he partnered some of the most glamorous ladies around - Eleanor Powell, Judy Garland, Rita Hayworth and the great Ginger Rogers.
Our Bottomless Brunch and Mimosas and full PIATTINI menu is available in the Cabaret Room during this performance.
