AMAZING one of the best shows I have seen in years. The music was great and the leads amazing. total energy and I swore I was watching keely smith and Louis Prima

Named Best Musical of 2008 by LA Weekly_, the Ovation Awards, and the L.A. Drama Critics Circle
“I found myself swaying from beginning to end in my seat, unable to sit still as the terrific seven-piece band, front-loaded with fabulous horns, kept the room aloft.” —_Los Angeles Times
“A rush of musical adrenaline.” —The Hollywood Reporter
“A near transcendent musical and comedic re-creation of the legendary Lous & Keely lounge act.” —Variety
Directed by Taylor Hackford
Written & Performed by Vanessa Claire Smith & Jake Broder with Nick Cagle & Erin Matthews
Inspired by the birth of Las Vegas and the lounge acts that made the Strip a legendary breeding ground for entertainers, Louis & Keely is a vintage love story set to the beat of jazz. Based on true events, Louis & Keely Live at the Sahara examines the hard-won career of 20th Century music icon Louis Prima and how he turned 16 year old Keely Smith into a star.
Nominated for 14 Los Angeles theater awards, Louis & Keely Live at the Sahara has become one of LA’s most popular original musicals with both critics and audiences alike.
The show has added a new director, Academy Award winner Taylor Hackford, a new book, and several additional characters (including Frank Sinatra in a major supporting role) since its Hollywood run. With a live jazz band on stage every night, popular standards such as “That Old Black Magic,” “Hey Boy, Hey Girl,” “Just a Gigolo”, “I Wish You Love” and “Embraceable You” will keep your toes tapping all night long.
