Posted: Friday, August 17, 2018 – 8:47 PM
Like a gourmet restaurant’s tasting menu, famed celebrity photographer Michael Childers has announced that this season’s presentation of “One Night Only” will be held on April 24, 2019. But instead of food, “One Night Only” offers a smorgasbord of Broadway marquee performers singing one song apiece from the work of the brightest stars of musical theater; and, only for that night.
This season’s production of “One Night Only” pays tribute to Andrew Lloyd Webber and benefits the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center located on the campus of the Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage.
