Feinstein’s/54 Below celebrates the extraordinarily diverse and wildly popular life and career of America’s Sweetheart, Dinah Shore on her centennial! Born in 1916, Dinah was the top-charting female vocalist of the 1940s and the first singer of her era to achieve huge solo success. She had an amazing string of 80 charted popular hits spanning the years 1940 to 1957. Though she also starred in movies, her greatest fame came from her remarkable four-decade career in American television, including starring in her own music and variety shows from 1951 through 1963 and hosting two talk shows in the 1970s. TV Guide ranked her at #16 on their list of the top fifty television stars of all time! Among her many accomplishments outside of show business, she helped pioneer the LPGA, and a golf championship event named after her regularly draws more than 25,000 female fans every year!
In our Centennial Concert honoring Ms. Shore, you will not only learn more of the fascinating details of her life and career (yes, she dated Burt Reynolds), but most importantly, you’ll witness a concert that will include her most enduring hit songs, including her top ten hits: “Blues in the Night,” “Skylark,” “You’d be So Nice to Come Home To,” “I’ll Walk Alone,” and “I Love You (for Sentimental Reasons)” — and that’s just for starters.
54 Sings Dinah Shore will be performed by a cast of sensational performers from the highest ranks of today’s New York theater and nightclubs. The show will be written, directed, and hosted by the critically acclaimed creator/writer/host of Town Hall’s Broadway by the Year series who has been responsible for more than 200 major concerts around the country, including producing/writing/directing for Michael Feinstein at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
