PETER MARSHALL CABARET CONCERT
Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 6 p.m. • Sedona Performing Arts Center
The Sedona Film Festival is proud to present a cabaret-style performance by Emmy Award winner Peter Marshall, whose broad resume includes more than 50 television, movie and Broadway credits, not to mention a 14-year stint as host of hit TV game show, The Hollywood Squares.
Marshall made his entrance into show business as a band singer at the age of 15. While still a teen, he moved to New York City where he landed a job as a page in radio for NBC. Early in his career he joined forces with Tommy Noonan. The comedy team appeared in major night clubs, films, and theatres throughout the country and made numerous appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show.
Marshall soon went to London and starred with Chita Rivera in Bye-Bye-Birdie. His first starring role on Broadway was with Julie Harris in Skyscraper. In later years, he appeared in other musicals including High Button Shoes, Anything Goes, Music Man, 42nd Street, and Neil Simon's Rumors. In the 1980s, Peter performed his role of Georges in over 800 performances of La Cage Aux Follies, first in the National Company and then at the Palace on Broadway.
Of course, Marshall is best-known for hosting over 5,000 episodes of the five-time Emmy Award winning game show, Hollywood Squares. With guests including Paul Lynde, Rose Marie, Charlie Weaver, George Gobel, Wally Cox, and some of the greatest entertainers in history, Hollywood Squares entertained audiences for over 15 years!
Marshall continues to perform in concert and still loves singing with the Big Bands such as Tex Beneke and his Orchestra, the Les Brown band, and the Harry James band. His career has demonstrated a versatility and flexibility that few entertainers can match. He's successfully conquered nearly every genre of entertainment including stage and screen, movies and television and radio.
Even with such a remarkable career, Marshall's easy-going and humble personality remains, which undoubtedly contributes to his being one of the most well-liked personalities in the entertainment industry.
