Lamb’s to Open 2023 Season with “RESPECT,” A World Premiere Musical

“In 2019 Lamb’s had terrific response to our production of ‘Million Dollar Quartet’ at the Avo Playhouse in Vista, so I added it to our 2020 Season in Coronado,” explained Producing Artistic Director Robert Smyth.

“But then Covid jumbled everything. We finally had a six month run of ‘Million Dollar Quartet’ in 2022. In the meantime I wanted to follow that story of men who changed American music in the ‘50s, with something to feature some of the great women singers Lamb’s has worked with. So I asked Kerry Meads and Vanda Eggington, who had done such a great job developing the hits ‘Boomers” and ‘American Rhythm’ for Lamb’s, to tackle a production about the amazing women singers & songwriters of the ‘60s. And, now finally, the premiere of R-E-S-P-E-C-T!”
