NAPLES, FL — THEATRE ZONE: “Marvin & Me” featured singer Valerie Lemon in an amazing concert tribute to Marvin Hamlisch, one of only twelve people to win Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards and one of only two people to have won those four prizes and a Pulitzer Prize (Richard Rodgers is the other).
For the record: SOLD OUT! 8:00 pm – Friday, January 27, 2017 Performance Venue: TheatreZone at G&L Theatre The Community School of Naples, Naples, FL 34109
Marvin & Me is filled with stories of 12 years of Valerie Lemon’s travels with Hamlisch on the road as a symphony vocalist as well as tales of the huge influence he has had on her singing career.
From the early pop songs through his amazing successes on stage and screen, Valerie brings all of her formidable talents to bear in this loving evening dedicated to the man who gave her one of her earliest breaks in show business.
Video Flashback: Valerie Lemon and Marvin Hamlisch perform: “What I Did For Love” — from the Musical A Chorus Line:
The seeds to bring this concert to Naples were sown when Terre Blair Hamlisch, Marvin’s widow, took a keen interest in TheatreZone following the rave reviews of the film noir musical Sweet Smell of Success (read review / see pictures!) in January 2014. The musical features one of Hamlisch’s most poignant scores.
The evening included a pre-show reception with wine and cheese and a post-show reception meet-and-greet with Ms. Lemon.
