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: A Special Evening with Donny Osmond,” 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 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.
A former alfalfa field that naturally sprouted 4,600 seats and a prodigious proscenium, Toyota Presents The Oakdale Theatre sports ample room for toe tapping, finger snapping, and air laughing. Today's deal includes general-admission parking, allowing guests to safely stow horseless carriages and bioengineered horse-and-carriage hybrids during the concert.
