tri - jack lemmonPerformer, actor and classically trained musician, Chris Lemmon will be paying tribute to his dad, Jack Lemmon in his critically acclaimed show “A Twist of Lemmon” for one show at 7 p.m. on Saturday June 13, 2015 at the Mount Dora Community Center located at 520 N. Baker Street in Mount Dora. This show is being presented by Mount Dora LIVE.
With a career spanning over 30 years Chris has starred in over 25 feature films including “Just the Ticket”, “Lena’s Holiday” and “That’s Life.” He’s starred in television series on all the major networks including “Knots Landing” {CBS}, “Studio 59” {ABC}, “Brother & Sisters” {NBC} and Fox’s situation comedy, “Duet.” He graduated from the California Institute of the Arts with degrees in classical piano and composition as well as a degree in the theatrical arts and has appeared in numerous stage productions including “Barefoot in the Park”, “Shay”, and “Love Letters.”
His memoir “A Twist of Lemmon” was published Father’s Day in 2006. It’s a heart-warming exploration of his unique, yet universal, father/son story, couched in the lore of the golden age of Hollywood, as told by Chris in the voice of his father, one of the most beloved actors of all times. The show contains wonderful behind the scenes stories, dozens of imitations of some of the world’s greatest entertainers, plus a score of some of Jack’s favorite Gershwin songs, performed by Chris, a classically trained pianist. And all the while, at its core, an incredibly touching glimpse into a father/son journey through life.
