Doug Graham has done a lot of performing since moving to the desert five years ago but it pails by his credits as a Broadway 'gypsy' which is a long list indeed. There's CATS, Chicago, Phantom Of The Opera, A Chorus Line, Dancin', 5,6,7,8 Dance, Woman Of The Year, Dreamgirls, Damn Yankees, Will Rogers Follies, and 7 Brides For 7 Brothers, just to name a few. Locally he continues to sing and dance and recently recreated his Rum Tug Tugger role in CATS for Palm Canyon Theater. As a choreographer, Doug is a 2012 Desert Theater League nominee for both his work on Broadway Tonight and Hooray For Hollywood for Cabaret Theater West.
For this new one-man show, "Perfectly Imperfect", Doug has compiled a roster of song selections from Broadway, The Great American Songbook, and Popular music that he feels describe himself, but most likely the audience will see a little of themselves in more than a few. The show begins at 2 PM on Sunday, August 19th at the Arthur Newman Theater located in the Joslyn Center in Palm Desert. Local musical director Joel Baker will accompany Doug on piano for the show.
"Perfectly Imperfect" is presented as part of the Les Michaels Sundays In Summer Cabaret Concert Series that runs through October 28 with a new show each Sunday. The box office opens at 1 PM and tickets are $10 cash at the box office. For more information, call 760-325-2731.
