Johnny Friendly, the host of the weekly radio show “Legends of American Music,” has somehow managed to land Nat “King’ Cole as his featured guest.
Such is the framework for this theatrical concert: “TOO MARVELOUS FOR WORDS: a celebration of Nat “King” Cole” starring Keith David as Nat “King” Cole. Featuring a full jazz group plus The Augusta Amusements Strings, “Too Marvelous For Words” is a joyful, swinging and theatrical journey into the music and life of one of America’s greatest artists, and during the course of the show, the real (and imagined) audience gets to experience the breadth of Cole’s artistry. In this regard, “TOO MARVELOUS FOR WORDS” is not a typical concert, and with singer/actor Keith David at the helm, the audience leaves humming this wonderful music and ruminating on the many fascinating aspects of Nat’s life.
With over 150 film, television and stage credits to his name, Emmy Award-winning actor Keith David continues to exemplify the character of Hollywood’s greatest actors with a humble ability to remain in demand, both on and off screen.
