Thank-You Gift Details

Geffen Playhouse (Westwood)-Nat King Cole Tribute 'Lights Out' (2/28/18)
Lights Out: Nat King Cole

We have a very special, limited thank you gift. For a sustaining donation of $20 per month or $240 for the year, you'll receive a pair of tickets to see Lights Out: Nat King Cole at the Geffen Playhouse in Westwood on Thursday, February 28th at 8pm for a special KJazz night. Joining the group will be our own Bubba Jackson.

Also included with these special pairs of tickets is access to an exclusive, private pre-show hosted reception at 6:30pm.

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.” Cole’s songs, such as “Nature Boy,” “It’s a Good Day” and “Smile,” underscore this original homage to the performer who struggled to break through America’s color barrier in the early days of television.

This West Coast premiere musical incorporates choreography by Broadway veteran Edgar Godineaux and tap dance seeped in politics and pizzazz created by Jared Grimes.

Reprising their roles from a sold-out run at People’s Light & Theater in Philadelphia, Emmy Award nominee Dulé Hill stars as Nat “King” Cole and Hamilton star Daniel J. Watts as Sammy Davis Jr.

This is a $450 value.
