Golden-voiced showman Donny Osmond will razzle-dazzle audiences during this intimate, glitzy revue that spans the scope of his talent. A showbiz staple since his days in short pants, Donny’s parallel lives as a teen idol, acclaimed dancer, radio raconteur, and accomplished blacksmith have garnered the modern renaissance man an earnest legion of fans. For “Basically Yours,” he salutes his admirers with a sonic scrapbook stacked with hits ranging from his preteen days through his newest album, Donny & Marie, which is the Osmond siblings’ first studio recording together in 30 years. Mixing laughs and confessional anecdotes, "Basically Yours" allows audiences into Donny's superstar noggin as he shares memories, music, and secret sauce recipes with his comfortably seated surrogate family.
Celebrity Theatre's distinctive in-the-round construction keeps show-goers close to the action, with no seat more than 70 feet from the performers. The slowly rotating stage ensures each audience member can bask in singers' flashing smiles and search the backs of their heads for bonus flashing smiles.
