Emmy Award® winner and Golden Globe® nominee, Mitzi Gaynor, lights up the stage with her acclaimed multimedia musical-comedy memoir Razzle Dazzle! My Life Behind the Sequins an intimate evening of laughs, love & music critics have called “sensational,” “hysterically funny,” “enormously entertaining,” and “a total star-spangled package of energy and joy.” In this glittering one woman tour-de-force, the star of such blockbuster Hollywood musicals as Les Girls, Anything Goes, There’s No Business Like Show Business and Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific presents a personal peek into her star-studded life and career through side-splitting stories and intimate reflections interwoven with classic songs, remarkable video montages and breathtaking Bob Mackie costume creations.
This unforgettable love letter to a great era of show business features Mitzi’s captivating brand of storytelling, including her hilarious anecdotes regarding some of her famous friends and costars – from Gene Kelly, Ethel Merman, Rossano Brazzi and Marilyn Monroe, to readying herself to meet The Duke of Windsor, her whirlwind romance with Howard Hughes, and the joyous 52-year-marriage to the love of her life, Hollywood producer Jack Bean.
Use of stunning video footage (culled from Mitzi’s television, concert and film work) and a cavalcade of familiar Hollywood, Broadway and Pop hits further explain and illuminate Mitzi’s story and express her adoration for her audiences.
