MEREDITH — An Interlakes Theatre favorite, Solomon Kee, will be returning to Meredith with his one man show, "I'm Just Here to Make the World Taste Good".
Performances are Saturday October 5 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday October 6 at 3 p.m.
The show is a brand new revue, that bringsthe music of the great Sammy Davis, Jr. back to life. Audiences will be transported to the Las Vegas Strip and you're sure to believe you're sitting at the Sands Hotel, or Caesars Palace singing, swinging and crooning with Sammy. The show highlights classic hits like "Candyman", "Mr. Bojangles", "Lady is a Tramp", "What Kind of Fool Am I?", just to name a few.
Kee is astonishingly like Sammy Davis, Jr. in both song styling and body language", says Interlakes Theatre producer, Nancy Barry. "The audiences loved him here this summer in "Ain't Misbehavin" and again as "Jimmy Thunder Early" in "Dreamgirls" and begged me to bring him back."
"The show isn't about imitation. I'm just being Solomon on stage", says Kee, who plays Sammy Davis, Jr. "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."
All tickets for the show are $25 and can be purchased online at www.interlakestheatre.com or by calling 1-888-245-6374.
