Rich Little—“The Man of a Thousand Voices”—will regale audiences with his famous ability to impersonate politicians and entertainers at the Queensborough Performing Arts Center (QPAC) on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 3:00pm.
Rich Little’s amazing career on stage and in television has spanned more than four decades. His act has been the spotlight at presidential inaugurations and he continues to tour throughout the world with his impressions of President’s Kennedy, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, both Bushes and Obama. Originally from Canada, he became a U.S. citizen in January 2010.
Opening for Mr. Little are The Four Freshman—one of the top vocal groups of the 1950’s. They are known as the bridge between 40’s ensembles like the Mel-Tones and the harmony-based rock & roll bands such as The Beach Boys. They continue to tour worldwide.
“This is a phenomenal opportunity to see a great talent who will simultaneously skew, charm, amuse and lampoon,” said Susan Agin, Executive and Artistic Director, QPAC. Ms. Agin noted that Rich Little has been selected by the Daughters of the American Revolution to receive the Americanism Medal for his tireless efforts to support the U.S. troops and his love of the United States.
Don’t let the high costs of shows in Manhattan, plus the cost of parking your car; stop you from seeing quality entertainment. QPAC’s excellent location, diverse schedule of events, reasonable ticket prices, free parking, beautiful theatre, infrared listening devices and exceptional service make it an excellent choice for a memorable outing.
Distinguished artists who have performed throughout the decades at QPAC include jazz legend Thelonius Monk; renowned dance choreographer Merce Cunningham; 60’s folksinger Judy Collins; and more recently Joan Rivers, Joel Grey, Robert Klein, Tommy Tune, Chita Rivera, Marvin Hamlisch, Mandy Patinkin, Dionne Warwick, Tony Orlando, Ben Vereen, Keith David, Andre De Shields, Larry Marshall and Norm Lewis.
