Dick Van Dyke Talks New Theater Gig in Los Angeles

Posted on December 9, 2010

Emmy and Tony-winning actor Dick Van Dyke discusses his return to the stage in a new career-retrospective musical, Dick Van Dyke - Step in Time! - A Musical Memoir. The show starts in previews next Tuesday at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. Dick, who turns 85 on Monday, is thrilled to be spending his retirement working instead of playing golf like his friends. He says he gets recognized by kids all the time who saw him as "Bert" in the classic film Mary Poppins, as well as in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Dick was approached in a Starbucks by a young singing group who wanted him to harmonize with him. Now they're starring in a show together. He looks and sounds fantastic. Love him. Take a look:

Tickets are available at the Geffen Playhouse, although many shows are already sold out.
