Photo Flash: First Look at Playhouse on Park's TENDERLY
Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman's TENDERLY: THE ROSEMARY CLOONEY MUSICAL begins performances at Playhouse on Park on January 15, and will run through February 2. The McAuley is the producing partner of TENDERLY.
TENDERLY is a loving re-creation of 20 or so of Rosemary Clooney's popular songs and a fresh, remarkably personal, and poignant picture of the woman whose unparalleled talent and unbridled personality made her a legend. With her signature songs woven in and out, we learn both the story of her successes on film, radio, and TV, as well as her struggles in her personal life. It features many of Mrs. Clooney's signature hits, including "Hey There (You with the Stars in your Eyes)," "Tenderly," and "Come On-A My House." It is as moving as it is entertaining. Susan Haefner, who originated the title role will be starring as Rosemary Clooney. Kyle Brand will direct, with music direction by Robert James Tomasulo and choreography by MK Lawson.
