An end of summer soirée starring superstar performer and recording artist Natalie Cole, complete with wine, cheese and art…sound enticing? It’s a great night out when Natalie Cole returns to The Ridgefield Playhouuse onThursday, August 21, at 8 p.m. The eight-time Grammy® award winner continues to astonish with her vocal dexterity and knowing way with a lyric and melody. Before Natalie Cole won the 1975 Best New Artist Grammy®, she appealed to fans and critics with her versatility as a pop artist offering R&B, jazz and popular songs. Her hits include “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)”, “Inseparable”, “Our Love”, “Pink Cadillac” and “Miss You Like Crazy”. Her seminal album Unforgettable…With Love (1991) set a new standard for the Great American Songbook with its title track “Unforgettable” on which she partnered with her late father, the legendary Nat “King” Cole. An artist’s reception with complimentary wine and cheese tastings courtesy of No. 109 Cheese & Wine takes place in the lobby from 6:30 – 7:15 p.m. For tickets ($135 orchestra, $125 mezzanine/balcony), call the box office at (203) 438-5795, or order online at ridgefieldplayhouse.org.
