Join us for a continental breakfast and “Durante!”—a rollicking, nostalgic jaunt through the life of the American singer, actor, comedian and ever popular entertainer, Jimmy Durante, as performed by Grover Kemble. This show is packed with Durante’s hilarious gravelly speech, butchered comic language, and catchy one-liners. It includes entertaining musical selections from his unique ragtime jazz hits and some of the softer, more nostalgic ballads which endeared him to legions of fans during a career spanning well over 60 years.
