I’ve been overwhelmed by the positive critical and effusive- often emotional- audience response to our production of Tenderly: The Rosemary Clooney Musical at Altarena Playhouse, including an incredible message I recently received from a longtime personal friend of Rosie’s, who came to see the show:
“To see her literally come alive through your performance was something I will treasure – she was there last night – you really were her! I couldn’t hold back my tears as I watched you bring her to life. And your voice! All the vocal inflections and how you created the many facets of her voice as she aged was truly amazing. I really heard her when I closed my eyes… your costar Dan was amazing too… Thank you thank you thank you for keeping her legacy alive, and for making her so alive and filling my heart.”
The validation that we’re doing her justice means everything to me; to play a worthy part- together with my incredible onstage partner and the entire production team- in helping the world keep the gift of Rosemary Clooney is the most I could’ve wished for, and my heart is as full as can be heading into our final four performances this Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
