B2: Hotlist! #57

Filed under: B2: Hotlist!,Uncategorized — b2productions @ 1:17 am
Greetings Community,
 
Yes I know this is the first B2: Hotlist! of 2011.  Not that there hasn’t been anything to promote, on the contrary…there’s been alot to talk about and see.  But as we move in 2011 we have done alot of  restructuring and added many elements to our company.
  
Not only are we in the midst of planning our 7th Annual Black 2: Broadway Celebrates the Tony Awards, launching our 2011 Kevin-Anthony Presents “Storytellers…A Master Class”,  begun to representing  2 Artists, we are committed to continuing to provide you with as much information as possible.
  
With that having been said, to follow is the lastest installment of our B2: Hotlist!  Please take the time to view the shows listed and please pass on to your individual lists.  We want to support as many productions as possible this year.  And like I always say, make your reservations in advance.
  
Finally, if you have a production or something you would like to be included on our B2: Hotlist! please forward your ad/info to b2productions1@aol.com, and we will do our best to include it.
  
Well, that’s it for now, enjoy the list and please share with everyone you know, you can even post our blog onto your facebook pages.  See you all behind the lights!  
  
As Always,
Kevin-Anthony

Urban Stages Presents 

  

 

 MUSICAL LEGENDS is four 70 minute tributes, performed in rep over the course of two weeks, February 24 – March 13.   They are:  

 

Pearl Bailey…By Request, starring Roz White with Gary Vincent,

directed by Tom Jones with musical direction by William A. Knowles and featuring Mike Mitchell on piano.

In her tribute to Pearl Bailey, award-winning singer/actor Roz White has chosen many of Bailey’s 16 Most Requested Songs, which she recorded for Columbia Records at the height of her career (including “St. Louis Blues,” “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” and “The Hucklebuck”) and built an evening of marvelous music and memorable stories entitled Pearl Bailey…By Request.   Originating at the Arc Theatre in Washington, D.C., the show has been produced by Metrostage in Alexandria, VA and The Milwaukee Rep Theatre.  Bailey’s infectious sultry tones are underscored by her remarkable wit in an evening of memorable swing, jazz and Broadway show tunes.”  The Daily Page

 

Nat ‘King’ Cole: Unforgettable Smooth Grooves, starring Cleve Douglass,

directed by Lee Summerswith musical direction by Tony Romano on guitar and featuring Phil Palombi on bass,

and Matt Kane on percussion. 

One of the jazz world’s brightest lights, many liken Cleve Douglass’ voice to the lateNat “King” Cole.  The New York Times said “Cleve… seems to be Nat King Cole reincarnate with a voice as silky as the lapels of his tuxedo.” Nat ‘King’ Cole: Unforgettable Smooth Grooves is Cleve Douglass’s tribute to some of Cole’s most memorable songs, using Douglass’ updated original arrangements.  This is Nat as you have never heard him before

at Urban Stages (259 West 30th Street)

February 24 – March 13, 2011.
