Unforgettable: Falling in Love with Nat King Cole
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.”
Please Note: Out of respect for our patrons, children ages 2 and under are not permitted in the theatre.
