About this show

The Heat Is On!, an explosive theatre piece based on the life of Rita Hayworth, examines the life, loves and career of Hollywood's most electrifying screen sirens. Starring Quinn Lemley, who bears more than a passing resemblance to the Love Goddess. The Heat Is On! chronicles Hayworth's marriages to Orson Welles and Prince Aly Khan, her turbulent relationship with movie mogul Harry Cohn, and final struggle with Alzheimer's through Hayworth's movie music with hits (such as "Put The Blame On Mame," "The Lady Is A Tramp," "Bewitched," "Long Ago and Far Away," "I'm Old Fashioned") dance and monologues with five onstage costume changes. Miss Lemley brings Rita's glamour, wit and vunerability while backed by a sizzling band.
