About Tenderly: The Rosemary Clooney Musical:

Tenderly: The Rosemary Clooney Musical” is not a typical “juke-box musical.” It offers a fresh, remarkably personal and poignant picture of the woman whose unparalleled talent and unbridled personality made her a legend.

With her signature songs woven in and out, we learn both the story of her successes on film, radio, and TV, as well as her struggles in her personal life –with a career fading during the advent of rock-and-roll and her battles with addiction and depression. Audiences stand and cheer as they rejoice at her triumphant comeback and even more successful career as a jazz singer.

Tenderly” was first featured at the New Works Festival 2010 at the Human Race Theatre in Dayton, Ohio and had its stage premiere in Spring of 2012 at the Victoria Theatre in Dayton, where it played in the Broadway series to over 15,000 people. Most recently, “Tenderly performed 69 sold-out shows at the Tony Award winning Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park in November 2014 through January 2015.
