Geffen Playhouse Theater presents Lights Out: Nat “King” Cole written by Colman Domingo & Patricia McGregor. In this highly theatrical exploration into the soul of an American icon, Tony and Olivier Award-nominee Colman Domingo and Patricia McGregor imagine Nat “King” Cole as he faces the final Christmastime broadcast of his groundbreaking variety show and weighs the advice of his friend Sammy Davis Jr. to “go out with a bang.”
The production is directed by Patricia McGregor, with music supervision by John McDaniel and choreography by Edgar Godineaux (tap and additional choreography by Jared Grimes).
Songs such as “Nature Boy,” “It’s a Good Day” and “Unforgettable” underscore this innovative look at one of America’s greatest talents. Starring Emmy Award-nominee Dulé Hill (West Wing, Stick Fly, Bring in ‘da Noise, Bring in ‘da Funk) as Nat “King” Cole and Daniel J. Watts (Hamilton, Memphis) as Sammy Davis Jr.
