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.
