Currently starring as “Frank’s One Love” in the new hit, “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” at San Francisco’s Marines’ Memorial Theatre, multi-talented singer, producer and writer, Lisa Dawn Miller takes the stage at The Rrazz Room at Hotel Nikko (222 Mason St., San Francisco, CA) on Saturday, June 12 for a special, one night only performance: “Miller Sings Miller ” .
Celebrating the songbook of her father, legendary songwriter Ron Miller, the show will include a medley of Ron’s hits, including standards like “For Once In My Life,” “Touch Me In The Morning,” “Heaven Help Us All,” “Yester-me, Yester-you, Yesterday,” “A Place In The Sun,” “I’ve Never Been A Woman Before,” “If I Could,” and “I’ve Never Been To Me.” Lisa will also share some of her late father’s newly discovered, never-heard-before gems.
“For every ‘For Once In My Life,’ there were a hundred songs that no one has ever heard …all just as beautiful…all standards, waiting to be born,” she says. “In my lifetime, I would like to see my father take his place amongst the great writers of our time. Most people don’t make the connection that one guy wrote ALL of these songs. I want to preserve my father’s legacy as a songwriter, a father, a friend. I’d like to do this not only as an artist and producer, but mostly as a believer in his dream…a dream of a brighter tomorrow for everyone.”
Lisa first performed her father’s music in her critically acclaimed show entitled “I Want To Come Back As A Song: Ron Miller, A Knight of Lyrics” in December, 2007 in New York City at The Metropolitan Room, with return engagements in 2008 and 2009.
Linda Amiel Burns of Cabaret Scenes/NY wrote: “Lisa Dawn Miller’s show at The Metropolitan Room in New York City was one of the best shows that I have ever seen. Very rarely do you get to see a singer cast a magic spell on stage and have the audience in the palm of her hand. Aside from being an incredible singer with a strong belt and a sweet, creamy vocal quality, Lisa has passion, sincerity, warmth and a great stage persona.”
“Sandy Hackett ‘s Rat Pack Show,” which is produced by Lisa and her husband Sandy Hackett, has been gaining rave reviews and standing ovations since its debut at San Francisco’s Marines Memorial Theatre (609 Sutter St., 2nd floor). The show, which recently launched a National Tour celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Original Rat Pack, has been extended-by popular demand–through June 2010 for weekend performances.
At the Sahara Hotel & Casino’s Main Showroom in Las Vegas, “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” continues to enjoy nightly performances, where the original production launched in November 2009.
In addition to Rat Pack standards, the show includes “Will I Still Be Me?” and “Wasn’t I A Good Time,” two never-before-heard, original songs penned by Ron Miller, both recently discovered by Lisa.
