A Twist of Lemmon

The Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center. Saturday, June 20, 8pm.

Bring Dad To The Kate on FATHER’S DAY WEEKEND for the Jack Lemmon Tribute “A TWIST OF LEMMON” starring his son Chris Lemmon!

“Twist” is based on Chris Lemmon’s book “A Twist of Lemmon” which tells the story of a beloved Hollywood icon, his dad, Jack Lemmon. Jack starred in over 60 films, was nominated for 8 Academy Awards and won 2 Oscars. One for “Mister Roberts” for Best Supporting Actor and the other for “Save the Tiger” for Best Actor.

He tells Jack’s story in his father’s voice and chronicles his life from birth until his death in 2001 at the age of 76. He’ll have you crying and laughing with his stries about Jack’s relationships both on and off the screen with producers, directors and legends like James Cagney, Gregory Peck, Marilyn Monroe and of course his best friend Walter Matthau.
