Celebrate national swing day with Aaron Albano, a swing for Cats at the Neil Simon theatre. The actor plays a different track almost every night.
As Equity puts in, “Swings are those members of the company who cover all the other chorus members. Often the most important to cast because of the nature of the job, a Swing must have a wide vocal range, be able to dance and be able to step into a role from young child to an older character, male or female. A Swing also must know the smallest detail of every ’track.’ Essentially, the Swing must be able to do it all and must be ready to go on at a moment’s notice.”
