Christopher Eisenberg, who started working with Westcoast Black Theater Troupe (WBTT) Founder/Artistic Director Nate Jacobs at the age of 8 and went on to be signed to major label deals, is starring in this unforgettable musical; “Frank & Me”. The show is a tribute to the most famous crooner of them all, Frank Sinatra. Patrons will enjoy a night of crooning, dancing, stories and laughs as Eisenberg celebrates “Ole’ Blue Eyes,” one of the greatest artists of all time. From the performance of classics such as “Fly Me to the Moon,” “The Way You Look Tonight” and “I’ve Got the World on a String” to exploring the impact Sinatra made on American culture, Eisenberg will walk patrons through a nostalgic journey while bringing a new-school twist to this brilliant artist. Eisenberg is the creator and writer of the show; Jacobs is the director. Track music arranged and recorded by Chris and Liston Gregory. Eisenberg, whose stage name is Chris Louis, is a native of Sarasota, Fla. who has loved music ever since he could remember. The 25-year-old has dedicated the last 14 years to pursuing his ultimate goal of changing the world through his music and message.

The world-premiere musical revue, “Big Sexy: The Fats Waller Revue.” features Leon S. Pitts, II. Thomas Wright “Fats” Waller was an American jazz pianist, composer, singer and comedic entertainer. He began playing piano when he was 6 and realized his dream of becoming a professional musician at 15, earning $32 a week at the Lincoln Theater in Harlem. The stride style he developed influenced the sound of modern jazz piano. "Big Sexy: The Fats Waller Revue," is a tribute to this irrepressible artist, features Waller’s signature songs, including “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Your Feet’s Too Big,” “The Joint is Jumpin’” and many more—as well as some lesser-known musical gems.
