All That Jazz


Because of some sort of legal issue, the Beck Center skirts around the subject of Reflections (Peggy Sings Leiber and Stoller). But it’s obvious that the musical -- which makes its world premiere this weekend -- is a tribute to Peggy Lee, one of the finest white female jazz singers to ever wrap her voice around a tune. The play centers on the songs Lee recorded with songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, who penned some early rock classics, including “Hound Dog,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and “Yakety Yak.” They also produced some of Lee’s most elegant work of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Film, dance, and plenty of singing (courtesy of star Laura Theodore) figure into the mix.
