Unforgettable: Falling in Love with Nat King Cole
November 5

TICKETS ON SALE NOW

Chicago leading man Evan Tyrone Martin – who Paramount theatregoers will recognize for his mind-blowing and jaw-dropping performance as Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar, as well as King Triton in The Little Mermaid and Tom Collins in Rent (other local credits include Side How and Dreamgirls) warmly resonates the velvety vocal style of musical legend Nat King Cole. Chicago Tribune calls the Award-nominated Martin “Destined for Stardom: One of the Hot New Faces of Chicago Theatre,” and BCR News praises, “Martin’s vocal ease would have done Nat King Cole proud.” Martin intimately relates Cole’s musical journey: from his upbringing in the Chicago church, to shuffling along the jazz scene, to his emergence as a popular music icon. Classic tunes include “Straighten Up and Fly Right,” “L-O-V-E” and “Smile.”
