Award-winning vocalist, director and Broadway actor (The Frogs, Sweet Smell of Success, Kiss Me, Kate) Eric Michael Gillett uses the wit and wisdom of Lorenz Hart to remind us all that, though love can be experienced with abandon, to be careless with the heart can also have a price. George Balanchine called Lorenz Hart the “Shelley of America,” his lyrics rank with the greatest romantic poetry of all time. Though he, himself, was unlucky in love, his writing casts a spell that will always survive the test of time, inspiring generations of lovers to come to follow their hearts.
Stephen Holden of The New York Times calls Gillett “…an idiosyncratic, fearlessly emotive baritone” who paints “an intimate self-portrait of a man in the thrall of show business dreams, for whom popular standards are platforms for unguarded confessions.”
