PREZ  THE LESTER YOUNG STORY had its world premiere in Feb. 2016 at Chromolume Theatre in Culver City, where it ran for two months and was hailed by critics and audiences alike. The play, which is set in a 1959 hotel room in Paris, paints an intimate portrait of Lester Young, a unique jazzman whose warm, lyrical style brought him fame, first with the Count Basie band, then with the likes of Nat King Cole, Oscar Peterson, Teddy Wilson, and his best friend and alter ego, Billie Holiday.
