He took off from the lower platform of rear pedestal Harold Lang, of Broadway’s “Pal Joey,” is champ at “going upstairs” The jet-propelled gentleman on these pages is Harold Lang, who is currently leaping his way to fame and fortune in the Broadway musical-comedy revival, "Pal Joey." Mr. Lang is a versatile dancer who takes all manner of routines in his stride, but he is particularly fond of “elevation," which amounts roughly to pole vaulting without the pole. Given a running start, he can manage a “split” in mid-air at just about six feet, measuring from stage level to the Lang posterior. San Francisco-born, Lang started his career in his teens, got his most valuable experience with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo under one Yvan Yvanovich Yazvinsky. Mr. Yazvinsky’s English was nearly as cluttered up as his name, but there was one ordpr that he could give very clearly: whenever he wished a darter to leap (which was often) he would shriek, "Alms, go upstairs!” Mr. T-ang has made going upstairs pay off in several recent Broadway musicals. Now ie has his chance to follow after Gene Kelly, the original Pal Joey 11 years ago. 4 It shouldn’t be too tough a leap for an old Yvan Yvanovich » hand. Charles d.
