Coming Attractions: Tenderly, The Rosemary Clooney Musical

This winter, I’m thrilled to return to Altarena Playhouse to tell the story of an icon who has long held a special place in my heart. Mark your calendars for January 6th – February 12th, 2017 for Tenderly, The Rosemary Clooney Musical, the musical biography of America’s favorite girl singer by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman, a remarkably personal and poignant picture of the woman whose unparalleled talent and unbridled personality made her a legend.

From Rosie’s simple Maysville, Kentucky childhood through her rise to Hollywood stardom, with her signature songs woven in and out, Tenderly tells the story of her successes on film, radio, and TV, as well as her struggles in her personal life – with a career fading during the advent of rock-and-roll and her battles with addiction and depression- to her triumphant comeback and even more successful career as a jazz singer.
