DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER – Los Angeles Premiere
|June 16, 2011|
Chris Isaacson & the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center’s Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center present
Making its premiere in Los Angeles, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER: the songs of Dame Shirley Bassey is a new, theatrical musical evening featuring Jennifer Leigh Warren’s (Broadway: Little Shop of Horrors, Big River) fresh spins on Bassey’s legendary songs, including monster hits like Goldfinger, Big Spender, Diamonds Are Forever and more!
The show, directed by Richard Jay-Alexander (Barbra Streisand, Bernadette Peters, etc), is not an imitation or a life story/bio of the great star, but a gentle nod to the brilliance of material, approach and unique delivery of some of the greatest songs ever written. As everyone knows, great songs never go out of style … especially when stylishly presented!
With a full band, under the Musical Direction of Kenneth Crouch (Eric Clapton, Babyface, etc), the evening’s fashions designed by Ali Rahimi at Mon Atelier, and observations of a very rich period in history, this concert will define what truly makes a star!
