TENDERLY, THE ROSEMARY CLOONEY MUSICAL offers a fresh, remarkably personal, and poignant picture of the woman whose unparalleled talent and unbridled personality made her a legend. In TENDERLY, Rosemary Clooney’s journey starts with her simple Kentucky childhood and follows her rise to Hollywood stardom. With her signature songs woven in and out, we learn both the story of her successes on film, radio, and TV, as well as her struggles in her personal life – with a career fading during the advent of rock-and-roll and her struggles with personal relationships and depression. Audiences stand and cheer as they rejoice at her triumphant comeback and even more successful career as a jazz singer. It features many of Mrs. Clooney’s signature hits, including “Hey There (You with the Stars in your Eyes),” “Tenderly,” and “Come On-A My House.”

Featuring the husband and wife team of Julia and Mark X Laskowski, this HOUSTON PREMIERE is an innovative tribute that traces her remarkable life and career, providing an entertaining and revealing musical showcase of her legendary contribution to American culture.

This is an intimate and intriguing tale of triumphing over adversity.” --London Theatre Reviews
