Sammy & Me

There’s more behind his smile than just talent and a dream. 

Sammy Davis, Jr: singer, dancer, child star, fixture of the Rat Pack… but at what cost? Virtuosic Broadway performer Eric Jordan Young investigates his own obsession with Sammy – and his questions take audiences on a whirlwind journey through Sammy’s life and his music. But when you ask, ‘who was the man behind the perfect cool smile?’ the answers that unravel are as powerful as the new questions they raise. 

Part self portrait, part celebrity investigation, this insightful new show features 15 songs Sammy made famous, including “Where or When,” “Smile,” “Mr. Bojangles,” and “Candy Man.” With Sammy & Me, the Alliance welcomes the return of Eric Jordan Young, last seen as the show-stopping King Herod in the hit Alliance musical Jesus Christ Superstar GOSPEL
