Theatre: Tribute to Nat King Cole
Route 66: Finding nat king cole
Route 66: Finding Nat King Cole is a phenomenal one-man show featuring the multi-talented film and stage actor Dr. Jeff Obafemi Carr (The Second Chance and Blue Like Jazz). This One-Act blockbuster takes us backstage to the dressing room of the actor tasked with bringing to life the music and memory of the great Nat King Cole, while struggling to maintain his own distinctive voice. The audience is taken on a remarkable journey filled with humor, sentimentality, and yes, the songs of the "Greatest Generation." Carr reveals little known details about the life of Nat King Cole while singing his music in a way no other actor before him has. By the time he appears as the King himself, you will believe you are actually witnessing the second coming of the velvety-smooth crooner as he lays out a greatest hits list that includes "When I Fall In Love," "Straighten Up and Fly Right," "Smile," "Unforgettable," and many more. A guaranteed audience favorite. Available in 1-Hour and 90-Minute versions with beautifully orchestrated recorded musical score, with an additional option for accompaniment with a live Jazz Trio.
