Jerry Lee Lewis show to replace Donna Summer’s musical at Dutch Apple in June | Entertainment
In June, the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater will host music by Jerry Lee Lewis instead of music by Donna Summer.
“Big Fireballs: Jerry Lee Lewis’s Music” will replace “Summer: Donna’s Summer Musical” in the theater’s schedule.
The exhibition runs from 3 to 25 June.
According to a press release, the exchange was made due to a change in the date of the national tour of the musical Donna Summer, which this year is no longer planned to stop at the Lancaster Theater.
“Great Balls of Fire” star Jason Cohen, who played Lewis’ early rock ‘n’ roll icon on the Million Dollar Quartet’s national tour. He played Lewis on a show at Dutch Apple in 2016.
Cohen revives Lewis both by singing his greatest hits and by performing piano gymnastics, which the singer made famous – for example, playing the keyboard behind his back, lying on the piano.
Viewers will hear standards such as “Shake, Rattle & Roll”, “Whole Lotta Shakin‘ Goin ’On”, “Good Golly, Miss Molly” and “Tutti Frutti”. In the show, Cohen also shares stories from Lewis ’life.
In addition to Lewis ’repertoire, which includes New Orleans jazz and traditional gospel songs, the show includes numbers by Lewis’ friends such as Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley.
A group of five supports Cohen on stage.
Dutch Apple is located at 510 Centerville Road, Lancaster. Tickets and information: dutchapple.com or 717-898-1900.
