Evan Tyrone Martin – Nat King Cole Tribute
Evan Tyrone Martin to Perform Unforgettable: Falling in Love with Nat King Cole
Evan Tyrone Martin will perform Unforgettable: Falling in Love with Nat King Cole at Freedom Hall on Friday, February 2, 2018 at 7:30. Chicago leading man Evan Tyrone Martin (JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, SIDE SHOW, DREAMGIRLS) warmly resonates the velvety vocal style of musical legend Nat KingCole. Chicago Tribune calls the Award-nominated Martin “Destined for Stardom: One of the Hot New Faces of Chicago Theatre,” and BCR News praises, “Martin’s vocal ease would have done Nat King Cole proud.” Martin intimately relates Cole’s musical journey: from his upbringing in the Chicago church, to shuffling along the jazz scene, to his emergence as a popular music icon.

The performance begins at 7:30. Tickets are $30 or $26 for season subscribers.
