Left My Heart: A Salute to the Music of Tony Bennett
Called “the greatest singer in the world” by Frank Sinatra, the always charming, classy and debonair Tony Bennett crooned his way into the heart of America. In this sexy musical revue, three superb male singers perform an anthology of Bennett’s best work – from “Rags to Riches” to “Put On a Happy Face” to the title track and many more – celebrating more than six decades of remarkable music in this swingin’ walk down memory lane. David Grapes and Todd Olson are co-creators for the production; Todd Olson will also be directing The Rep’s production. Original piano and vocal arrangements for I Left My Heart are by Vince di Mura. The cast features singers Eric Jon Mahlum, Andrew McMath and Rob Tucker, all making their Rep debuts, and Richard Carsey, well-known to Milwaukee audiences from his years with Skylight Music Theatre, will accompany them on piano. Carsey is also the Music Director for the production. I Left My Heart: A Salute to the Music of Tony Bennett runs in the Stackner Cabaret from August 23 – October 20 and opens Sunday, August 25.
