About the piece
Tenderly is not a typical “juke-box musical.”
It offers a fresh, remarkably personal, and poignant picture of the woman whose unparalleled talent and unbridled personality made her a legend.
Rosemary Clooney’s journey starts with her simple Maysville, Kentucky childhood and follows her rise to Hollywood stardom.
With her signature songs woven in and out, we learn both the story of her successes on film, radio, and TV, as well as her struggles in her personal life – with a career fading during the advent of rock-and-roll and her battles with addiction and depression.
"Azevedo is excellently specific at highlighting the themes of the piece throughout - Holistically a fantastic piece."
