Bobby D and Peggy Lee: Together Again!!! July 12th-July 20th, 2013
On April 27, 1973 the final episode of THE BOBBY DARIN SHOW aired on NBC with Peggy Lee as the only guest. It was one of Darin's final performances, as he died 8 months later. PURPLE PHOENIX PRODUCTIONS is thrilled to recapture the magic of that particular broadcast by teaming Seattle entertainers Bob De Dea and Lindsey Larson for a new tribute concert, BOBBY D AND PEGGY LEE: TOGETHER AGAIN!!! at Bellevue Civic Theatre July 12-20.
Working with a live 9-piece jazz band, De Dea and Larson - having performed solo tribute concerts to Darin and Lee - will sing many of the songs made famous by these iconic entertainers, and will recreate some of the duets these celebrated friends shared in concerts and nightclubs.
Among the Bobby Darin hits included are "Dream Lover", "Lazy River", "Splish Splash", "If I Were A Carpenter", "Beyond The Sea" and his signature hit "Mack The Knife".
Songs that Miss Lee made famous that you'll hear include "Big Spender", "I'm A W-O-M-A-N", "Alright, Okay, You Win", "I Love Being Here With You", "It's A Good Day", "He's A Tramp" and her signature hit "Fever".
DeDea and Larson will join forces on several medleys, with salutes to Broadway show tunes, the songs both of them recorded, and songs that were composed by Darin and Lee, who were prolific songwriters as well as vocalists.

In this award-winning comedy treat, dashing Richard Hannay heroically attempts to solve the riddle of the 39 Steps before he is caught by crazy Nazi spies. Combine Hitchcock’s 1935 film masterpiece with a bit of Monty Python and a juicy spy novel and out pops this amazingly fast-paced, side-splitting whodunit. Get ready to celebrate the theatre of imagination as four talented actors portray 150 zany characters facing train crashes, missing fingers, and (yes!) onstage plane crashes!

Greed, corruption, love and revolution. This wickedly funny, award-winning musical satire tackles all four. A water shortage caused by a 20-year drought leads the government to enforce a ban on private toilets. Citizens must pay admission to use the public amenities which are regulated by the malevolent Urine Good Company run by the corrupt Caldwell B. Cladwell. Then, one day, a hero emerges to stand up and lead them all to freedom!
"For anarchic, first-rate comic relief, get thee to Urinetown."
