This show delves into the inner thoughts and behind the scenes life of the great, Nat King Cole.

Closed 7 Jul 2013

Nat King Cole, the pianist and singer, broke color lines pushing through barriers of injustice. A determined, yet humble and truly gifted individual, Nat had a unique drive and passion for stardom that arose directly from his need to please people to the nth degree.

Always catering to the needs of an ever-demanding audience, Nat publicly strove to become the world's most beloved entertainer. Behind closed doors, Nat's life was vastly different from what he showed to the public. Privately, Nat battled mainstream prejudice, addiction and heartache.

Join Verlon Brown, as he brings us back to 1965, allowing audiences to have a sneak peek into the inner life of an iconic, leading jazz performer.
