Musical Portrait of Nat King Cole -- I Wish You Love
$39 - $44
Among the aristocrats of jazz and swing, there was the "Duke" and the "Count" -- but there was only one "King": Nat King Cole. Now The Ensemble Theatre presents its season finale musical, I Wish You Love, an intimate portrait of Cole and his double impact on the nation's history and culture. In 1957, Americans were in love with Cole's remarkable pop recordings, including immortal singles like "Unforgettable" and "Mona Lisa." Meanwhile, his carefully manicured image distracted white viewers from the reality of racial violence raging in the streets. Still, Cole believed that with talent and persistence he would be judged by the content of his character ... and not by the color of his skin. Catch the regional premiere of this story of one man, his music and the dreams of a nation.
