Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis are coming to the stage at the Sudbury Theatre Centre March 15-25 in “Dean & Jerry: What Might Have Been.”
A co-production with the Orillia Opera House, this fabulous live concert presentation by Jesse Collins includes timeless hits from the most famous musical comedy team of the 1950s.
You’ll be swept back to a time remembered for such Martin hits as “Everybody Loves Somebody,” “You’re Nobody Til Somebody Loves You,” “Volare,” “That’s Amore, Standing on the Corner,” “Memories are Made of This,” and Lewis’ No. 1 hit, “Rockabye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody.”
You’ll enjoy the classic music and comedy that made them famous — and a concert of hits that will leave you wondering “what if they had never split?”
