celebrating Rita Hayworth

Written and Directed by Carter Inskeep <> Thursday February 22nd at 8pm

One night only!!!

PLUS..."The Other Side of Quinn Lemley"
A late night Big Band set, continues the evening!

THE HEAT IS ON! A theatrical concert backed by an 11- piece Big Band Orchestra based on the life of movie star, Rita Hayworth, will return to B.B. King Blue's Club for ONE PERFORMANCE ONLY, following a smash, sold-out show this past July & 35 sold-out concerts in Greece. THE HEAT IS ON! Examines the life, loves & career of one of Hollywood's most electrifying sirens & stars QUINN LEMLEY in her critically acclaimed tour-de-force performance that “seduces to ovational roars!"

THE HEAT IS ON! explores Miss Hayworth's infamous marriages to Orson Welles & Prince Aly Khan, her turbulent relationship with Columbia Pictures movie mogul Harry Cohn, her ascent into Hollywood stardom in the '40's, her relationships with Fred Astaire, Frank Sinatra & Dick Haymes & her final struggle with Alzheimer's. Miss Lemley takes you by the hand with Hayworth, as she invites you into the crevasses of her heart to share the flip side of her life through monologue & Hayworth's music ("Long Ago and Far Away," “Put The Blame On Mame," “I'm Old Fashioned," “Zip," “The Lady is a Tramp" & “Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered"), backed by an electrifying 11-piece Big Band, dance & five costume changes.

THE OTHER SIDE OF QUINN LEMLEY is a late night, big band adventure, celebrating sexy, swingin' standards. Quinn lays down the character of Rita & is “Quinntessentially" Quinn. The 30-minute set is a fun show celebrating international standards & Hollywood glam, with a surprise!
