A series of amazing video montages and a powerful 10-piece band, directed by Gary Anderson, delivered an outstanding performance, envisioned by executive producer Patty Ascher.

Prima started off the evening with the upbeat hit, “When You’re Smiling,” and performed a selection of her father’s songs, including “Just A Gigolo.” March-Torme followed with renditions of “Sweet Georgia Brown,” “The Trolley Song” and “Swingin’ At The Blue Moon Bar & Grille,” while Martin filled the crowd with excitement singing a variety of his father’s hit songs including “Memories Are Made Of This,” “That’s Amore” and “Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime.” The evening commenced with Luft’s delightful renditions of “The Man That Got Away” and “Zing! Went The Strings Of My Heart,” followed by a thrilling encore of “Smile,” performed by the entire cast. Originally performed by Nat King Cole in 1954, “Smile” had special meaning as it was also sung by Judy Garland and was the theme song of The Jerry Lewis Show from 1967-1969.
