His dynamic scores include Sweet Charity, The Will Rogers Follies, City of Angels, and On the Twentieth Century to name but a few. His swinging tunes have been covered by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, Peggy Lee and many more. CJO will celebrate this staple of the Great American Songbook with dazzling still images, rare film clips and show-stopping performances. Jan 28 & Jan 29 Hanna Theatre at Playhouse Square.
