Dave Grohl Conquers Broadway in the Revival of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Monday, April 06, 2015

Dave Grohl, the warmhearted drummer, has played with every band imaginable. He turned the rock world on its head as a member of the grunge group Nirvana and as the singer/guitarist/songwriter for the incredible rock band the Foo Fighters.

What is left for the man who has done everything? Dancing in a broadway show.

Grohl will be joining the cast of the Broadway revival of “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.” Dave will be playing the part of all seven brothers.”

“I have a little time off this summer between shows. Broadway has been something I’ve wanted to do since I was a young grunge rocker turning the rock world on its head in Nirvana. In fact I was set to move to New York when the whole grunge thing took off. My plans got put on hold. I figure it’s now or never.

“I’m totally gassed. Dancing has been a passion of mine for years. I love speaking to the audience through dance. The joy, the sorrow, the gift of life and the treasures it brings, all come from the heart and down through my feet.”

Taylor (Hawkins of the Foo Fighters) has been helping me. We spend eight hours a day, every day, watching YouTube clips of professional dancing. It’s exhausting but rewarding. I know so much more about the craft.

It’s a way to get away from the fast lane life of the Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures, the band with Lemmy, sitting in with Rush, Queen, Kiss, Van Halen, Celine Dion, the Backstreet Boys, Tom Jones, Lourde, Dexie’s Midnight Runners, Pat Benetar, Pat Boone, Juice Newton, Barbra Mandrell, Gwar and Sheena Easton.

Jack Cummings, the original and current producer says, “Dave knows what he wants, and he wanted to play all seven brothers!

Jack admits there have been problems working with Grohl.

“Dave and I are so alike but we sometimes have different opinions. I would have liked to of hired six more actors as the other brothers, but Dave insists on playing all the parts himself. So we compromised and did it Dave’s way. After all he was in Nirvana.

“I’m gonna trade in my Rock n Roll shoes for a pair of dance shoes, or dance boots in this case. It’s just another artistic outlet for me. All I can say is, “Feets don’t fail me now!”

The Revival of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers feat. Dave Grohl is set to open mid-July.
