FST to Celebrate Songs of Sammy Cahn This Summer with COME FLY WITH ME!

Article Pixel

The legendary lyrical talent of Sammy Cahn takes center stage in FST's first Summer Cabaret production, "Come Fly With Me!" The Sammy Cahn Songbook. With lyrics by Sammy Cahn, music by Jule Styne & Jimmy Van Heusen, this dynamic cast of four will perform from June 14 through July 17 in the John C. Court Cabaret. Subscriptions are available for $39 and may be purchased online at floridastudiotheatre.org or by phone at 941-366-9000.

Celebrating the most recorded lyricist of the 20th Century, FST invites audiences to experience a new sound on the Cabaret stage. According to Producing Artistic Director, Richard Hopkins, "It's great because we've never actually done the Sammy Cahn songbook. This is a group of actors/singers from New York that have put this all together. We forget just how many songs Sammy Cahn actually wrote."

Take off on this musical journey through the lyrics of Sammy Cahn featuring songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Mario Lanza, Doris Day, Bing Crosby, Jo Stafford and more. Featuring songs such as "Come Fly with Me," "Three Coins in the Fountain," "High Hopes," and "All the Way."

Guiding audiences on the flight through this supersonic musical revue is singer, actor, comedian, and impressionist, Perry Lambert. According to Lambert, "Every year younger and younger people discover these songs and the artists that made them famous. They will always be around because they stand the test of time. Sammy's lyrics speak a universal truth of love, sadness, joy, and loss...or as one person described it; 'The soundtrack to people's memories.'"

Crooning right alongside Lambert are fellow cast members Samantha Dunn, Mindy Montavon, and David Zack. Dunn's regional and touring credits include Suds, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, The Drowsy Chaperone, and Urinetown. Montavon has previously been seen in Lucky Stiff, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, Unnecessary Farce, Run for Your Wife, and The Owl and the Pussycat. Zack's previous credits include Sweet Smell of Success, Golden Apple and Wonderful Town, Panama Hattie, Rocky Horror at Rockwell and Little Shop of Horror, Evita, Guys and Dolls, and Pirates of Penzance.
