Pal Joey is the story of a small-time nightclub singer who ditches his girlfriend for a wealthy older woman who helps him open his own club. The show is a bit dark and the characters sometimes less than loveable, which explains why it is not seen more often despite an excellent score.

The critics were mixed on this production - most admired Stockard Channing as Joey's benefactor and Martha Plimpton in a rare singing/dancing role, and some felt the show's story and tone issues had been handled nicely in Richard Greenberg's revision of the book. Others felt the direction was inconsistent and the overall impact somewhat lacking.

Matthew Risch, originally cast as the understudy for Tony-winner Christian Hoff, took over the title role after Mr. Hoff was injured in one of the show's first performances. Mr. Risch has stepped into some big shoes (and we don't mean those vacated by Mr. Hoff)...Gene Kelly played the role in the original Broadway production, and Frank Sinatra played it in the film version.
