Main Stage Series

January 15th - February 2nd, 2020


by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman

Directed by Kyle Brand
Music Direction by Robert James Tomasulo
Choreography by MK Lawson

A loving re-creation of 20 or so of Rosemary Clooney’s popular songs and a fresh, remarkably personal, and poignant picture of the woman whose unparalleled talent and unbridled personality made her a legend.  With her signature songs woven in and out, we learn both the story of her successes on film, radio, and TV, as well as her struggles in her personal life. It features many of Mrs. Clooney’s signature hits, including “Hey There (You with the Stars in your Eyes),” “Tenderly,” and “Come On-A My House.” It is as moving as it is entertaining.  Susan Haefner, who originated the title role will be starring as Rosemary Clooney.

This is an intimate and intriguing tale of triumphing over adversity.” --London Theatre Reviews

Stirring and splendid."
