Morrow up for ‘Last Dance’

Actor joins Off Broadway workshop

Rob Morrow has signed on to star in the developmental staging of “Last Dance,” the disco tuner lined up for five perfs at Off Broadway’s York Theater in the fall.

Morrow will play the character who largely serves as the narrator of the tuner’s 1970s-set story. Philip William McKinley (“Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”) is already signed on to helm.

Production incorporates the music of Paul Jabara, whose glitterball-era credits includes “It’s Raining Men,” “Enough is Enough” and the musical’s title song. Book is written by Shaun McKenna, who also wrote the book of the musical version of “Lord of the Rings” that played Toronto and London.

Morrow’s legit credits include the Off Broadway staging of “The Exonerated” and a West End production of “Birdy.” Whether he’ll remain attached to “Last Dance” in any potential future incarnations remains to be seen.

York produces the developmental workshop with Robert D. Wachs, who’s been shepherding the project for a number of years. The York staging will run Sept. 20-23.
