July 25th, 2012 Jerry Lewis “King of Comedy” Upclose Photo Essay

NASHVILLE (July 25, 2012) - Comedy legend Jerry Lewis has been in town for most of the summer, directing the stage musical of his hit movie The Nutty Professor, that’s set to make its world premiere at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) on July 31. It’s the launch of the show that will be heading to Broadway in the near future. It was quite an honor that the creative team chose Nashville and TPAC from which to launch the show.

Last night, I attended the very first presentation of the production in front of a live audience and it was amazing.  It will be in a “preview” mode all week.  I have been lucky to have been invited to several donor parties this summer in which Jerry also attended and as I was headed out to one such reception on July 9, I knew  that I would have great access to him, so I took along my trusty Nikon.  I ended up sitting right in front of him and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to create the following photo essay and facial study of the King Of Comedy.  Hey Lady, look at these!
