THE HEAT IS ON! A theatrical concert backed by an 11- piece Big Band Orchestra based on the life of movie star, Rita Hayworth, comes to Ridgefield Playhouse, Friday May 11 at 8 pm; following 35 sold-out concerts in Greece and 2 smashing shows at BB Kings in NYC. 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.

Spellbinding ... Drop-Dead Gorgeous & A Great Performer" --Will Friedwald, Village Voice

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
