January 31st – March 1st, 2009 PASADENA PLAYHOUSE
This is not a weather alert. But a brand new on the way to Broadway musical starring Tony Award winner, the fantastic Leslie Uggams as Lena Horne in the sometimes stormy, always extraordinary journey of this American icon. With Dee Hoty, Robert Torti, Kevyn Morrow and Niki Crawford.
Conceived and written by Sharleen Cooper Cohen, it is suggested by the biography LENA HORNE, ENTERTAINER published by Chelsea House. STORMY WEATHER features songs by Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, Johnny Mercer & Harold Arlen, Billy Strayhorn and other popular composers.
Michael Bush directs. Randy Skinner will choreograph. Two excellent choices. I know this first hand as they performed the same duties with “The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde” written by Michael Aman and myself with a score by Dana P. Rowe – first produced at The New York Musical Festival in 2005.
Don’t miss the West Coast Premier presented by special arrangement with Stewart F. Lane, Bonnie Comley and Armica Productions. TICKETS (626) 356 7529 www.pasadenaplayhouse.org
