Sonny's Place --- The Musical
The only Broadway bound musical where Jazz Legends come to life...
May 13, 2010 (Newswire.com) - The Atlanta Jazz Festival is all set for a spectacular sneak peek performance of "Sonny's Place" Memorial Day weekend.
After giving over 175 wonderful performances since 2002, Sonny's Place arrives in Atlanta for a grand appearance. A stunning musical masterpiece composed by visionary Vincent E. Kee. This brilliant production is a show case of artists portraying an assortment of some of the greatest jazz, swing & blues legends of all time.
The sneak peek performance at the Atlanta Jazz Festival is just a small taste of what's to come. Sonny's Place national tour launches September 14, 2010.
The dynamic cast members will portray the legendary Billie Holiday, Satchmo Louie Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway, Sarah Vaughan, Comedian Moms Mabley, Count Bassie & more!
After philandering bar owner/notorious gangster/ song-n-dance man/ songwriter/ Sonny Bumpy Johnson is shot in 1956 by his wife, something unexpected happens. 50 years later (2006) Sonny & fellow Ghosts of legendary Jazz, Swing & Blues singers appear to sing his incredible never heard music at his club. The likenesses of Moms Mabley, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Cab Calloway, Satchmo and others belt out his original tunes to a Donald Trump-Type Billionaire in efforts to keep his club from being demolished!
This refreshing side splitting comedy will keep you laughing and the electrifying music and over the top choreography will keep you snapping your fingers and tapping your feet to the very end! Sonny's Place captures the essence of the music and legendary performers who paved the way for artists today.
