The Interlakes Summer Theatre is proud to announce that Solomon Kee will be returning to Meredith with the latest version of his Sammy Davis, Jr. show on Saturday, February 7th at 2:00pm and 7:30pm and Sunday February 8th at 3:00pm.
“Mr. Davis, a Night with Sammy” is the new Sammy Davis Jr, musical show. Audiences will be transported to the Las Vegas Strip and you’re sure to believe you’re sitting at the Sands Hotel singing, swinging, and crooning with Sammy. The show highlights classic hits like “Candyman”, “Mr. Bojangles”, “Once in a Lifetime”, and “What Kind of Fool Am I?”.
“Kee is astonishingly like Sammy Davis, Jr. in both song styling and body language”, says Interlakes Theatre producer, Nancy Barry. “The show isn’t about imitation. I’m just being Solomon on stage”, says Kee, who plays Sammy. “I sing his songs and add a few Sammy Davisisms here and there. I don’t believe anyone can impersonate him. He was one of a kind. I just wanna make the world taste good like he did.”
Solomon performed his one-man show here in October 2013 and since has continued the development with help from NYC producers and directors. He returns with his Musical Director, Joshua Stecher-Ross and Interlakes favorites David LeBlanc (“Dave, the drummer”) and bassist Dr. Anthony Varga. “Everywhere I go in town, folks have asked me to bring him back, so on my recent trip to NYC, Solomon & I sat down together and made a plan!”, says Barry.
