Chicago theatre standout Evan Tyrone Martin (Dreamgirls, Far From Heaven, Rent, Violet—Jeff Award Nomination) warmly resonates the velvety vocal style of musical legend Nat King Cole. 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. The enduring popularity of Cole’s recordings, particularly his holiday standards, is a testimony to the timelessness of his sound, a sound synonymous with American tradition. Classic tunes include “Straighten Up and Fly Right,” “L-O-V-E,” and “Smile.”
