Scott Dreier's DORIS AND ME Comes to The Colony Theatre
The Colony Theatre in Burbank has announced a four-performance engagement of Doris and Me, A Musical Tribute to Doris Day starring Scott Dreier from August 9-12. Doris and Me is directed by Ovation Award-winner Richard Israel. This engagement follows Dreier's recent performance at Doris Day's 96th birthday celebration in Carmel, CA, which was a benefit for the Doris Day Animal Foundation.
Doris and Me is a joyful celebration of the music, life, and career of Doris Day and one man's quirky obsession with America's sweetheart. In his multiple-year Eddon Award-winning and BroadwayWorld.com's Critics Choice performance, Scott Dreier transports audiences and guides them on a nostalgic sentimental journey. If you're a Doris Day fan, this is a must-see; if you have yet to be introduced to this timeless legend, you'll be a devotee by the end of this uplifting, tuneful, funny, and loving musical tribute.
