Written and directed by Carter Inskeep (Always Patsy Cline) and backed by a sizzling 12-piece big band, this sexy, witty musical takes you lovingly by the hand on a riveting 90-minute musical journey. Rita Hayworth The Heat Is On follows the rise and fall of Columbia Pictures' greatest star as performed by Quinn Lemley, known for her uncanny resemblance to Rita Hayworth, from her flowing red hair to show-stopping performances. The Wall Street Journal proclaims it would be impossible for another singer-actress with the talent, the charm, the energy, and the vivaciousness, not to mention the sensuality to pull it off. Hollywood's Golden Age is revealed as never before as "The Love Goddess" tells her dramatic story of becoming Columbia's biggest star under the guise of the ruthless chairman of Columbia, Harry Cohn.
Conflicting worlds of fantasy and reality are exposed through riveting stories of marriages to Orson Welles & Prince Aly Khan and co-stars Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. Featuring over 20 hit songs from her life and career, Put the Blame On Mame, Bewitched, Zip and iconic films Gilda, Pal Joey, Cover Girl & more performed by the incomparable, Quinn Lemley. The New York Post said, You don't even have to squint your eyes to see that Rita is in the room.
Quinn Lemley is the star of the hit shows, Burlesque to Broadway and Rita Hayworth The Heat Is On! The New York Times defines her performances as "Dazzling...with one show stopping number after another!" Lemley has appeared on Good Morning America, Oprah and was a finalist on ABC's Shark Tank.
