Danny has clearly led off with his biggest hit, akin to

Sweet Caroline (equally catchy, almost as good). Sweet

Caroline is a good reference actually, mainly because

from the first note (and especially the chorus), the

audience is SINGING ALONG in a call and response fashion

(TWO VIDEO SCREENS even cue the audience to sing their

part with bouncing-ball karaoke-esque prompts).

The CROWD (older) eats it all up. A WOMAN sings his

chorus “Hey, Baby Doll” while also wearing a “Hey, Baby

Doll” T-shirt. ANOTHER WOMAN holds up a sign that reads

“This Granny Loves Danny.”

ON DANNY:

During the song he mingles with women in the front row -

he kisses one woman’s hand, blows a kiss to another. He

makes a show out of giving one woman his SCARF.

Danny takes in...

THE CROWD:

AN OLDER COUPLE, arm and arm, SING the response part of

the song back at him. They’re singing way too hard.

THREE OLDER WOMEN sit quietly in their front row seats,

eating RED VINES and mouthing words along, lifeless.

A GROUP OF YOUNG PEOPLE sings along with energy... but

they’re LAUGHING. They’re not laughing with Danny.

ON DANNY:

He’s seen it all a thousand times. It no longer fazes

him.

He pivots with a little shimmy, keeps performing.
