Husson University's Gracie Theatre hosts

Date of Release: September 6, 2011

The look, the style, and the voices of three entertainment giants take the stage at the Gracie Theatre at Husson University, Friday, Oct. 7th at 7:30 pm. Andy DiMino as Dean Martin, Susan Griffiths as Marilyn Monroe and Joan Rose as Barbra Streisand bring these show business icons to life with their amazing tribute to legends Dean, Marilyn and Barbra.

Andy DiMino, internationally regarded as the definitive Dean Martin impersonator, has spent the last twenty years honing his craft, and performing from Vegas to London. Susan Griffiths has a natural uncanny resemblance to the late Marilyn Monroe, and when she ventures into the audience to serenade a lucky gentleman, Marilyn is in the house. Joan Rose is often stopped by strangers commenting on her Streisand likeness. Fortunately for her audiences, Rose sings like the great lady as well.

Jeri Misler, Managing Director of the Gracie Theatre, was introduced to the Legends show by local entertainer Steve Robbins, who has shared the stage with these performers while in Vegas. Eager to bring the show to the East coast, Robbins sees the Gracie as the perfect venue for this class act. Misler agrees, “This show promises to be pure fun. We are bringing Vegas to the Gracie, allowing audiences to relive a great musical memory or be introduced to legendary “stars” up close and personal.”

“Each time I work with these great performers, they manage to create that magical moment that all entertainers strive for-to make an audience suspend reality and believe the impossible.” said Robbins.

On Friday, Oct. 7, step back in time with Andy, Susan and Joan as they bring the glamour of Vegas to the Gracie stage at Husson University. For tickets, go to www.gracietheatre.com or call the box office at 941-7051.
