Revel in romance and luscious harmonies when Legends @ the Capri presents Chances Are… The Johnny Mathis Duets, featuring Julius Collins and Thomasina Petrus, at 7 p.m. Saturday, November 19 and 3 p.m. Sunday, November 20 at the Capri Theater, 2027 West Broadway.
It’s been said that Johnny Mathis has done more for romance than champagne, red roses and diamond rings put together. “His voice was so romantic and smokey,” said Dennis Spears, Legends Artistic Director, “and the duets he performed – with Deniece Williams, Dionne Warwick, Patty Austin and others – were beautiful, sweet and so well-written. It’s music that’s filled with love.”
Julius Collins and Thomasina Petrus, who performed together in the hit musical Hot Chocolate, “bring just the right chemistry to make the fire glow in this show,” said Spears. You’ll hear them sing Too Much, Too Little, Too Late; Chances Are, Deja Vu and The Last Time I Felt Like That, and many more delicious duets.
“Johnny Mathis stands alongside a lot of the great balladeers like Nat King Cole and Harry Belafonte, and I’m very excited to honor his artistry,” said Spears.
