“James Rich lofts the equivalent of high fly balls” – The Boston Globe

After sold-out appearances in Connecticut, Nova Scotia, and Victoria, B.C., James Rich (Rent, Saturday Night Fever) brings his unforgettable salute to Nat King Cole to the stage at 54 Below. Under the direction of Duane Boutté, James recounts unique and significant moments from his journey of researching, writing, and developing There Was a Boy – a new musical about Nat King Cole, the performer, husband, father, and son. From “Nature Boy” to “You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You,” Mr. Rich captures the essence of “The Nat King Cole Show” as if Mr. Cole was still one of the top-selling concert artists of his generation in today’s world… think Nat King Cole 2.0. This show promises to be a memorable experience that’ll have you tapping along and singing the music all the way home.

Joined by:

James Cammack (Darlene Love, Ahmad Jamal) on bass
Matt Falker (Grammy nominee) as music director and band leader
Dave Tedeschi (Postmodern Jukebox) on drums
