Now I'm reminded of the talented white choreographer Randy Skinner. He's nominated for an 2018 Olivier Award for his choreography of 42nd Street. In this great The Stage interview, he reminds us why he is worthy of choreographing any musical whether its cast is black, white, or any color in between. His inspiration comes from the great American movie musicals which he reaches back to for the West End's 42nd Street-- the 1933 original Pre-Code movie that told its adult story to grownups who appreciated the sexual innuendo and sensuous costuming.

Here's hoping Randy Skinner wins the award!
