This new play with music by Gershwin, Bernstein, Puccini, Mancini, Rachmaninoff, Rodgers, Legrand and Mr. Bayless himself, takes audiences on the amazing journey of  world renowned concert pianist John Bayless' life through his music – his highs, his lows and back again – to his ‘second act’ concertizing with his left hand all alone. Play covers his story as a musical prodigy from Texas, coming out as a gay man, a 30-year concert career halted by a devastating stroke which changed everything, and led to a spiritual awakening and one amazing comeback! The McCallum Theatre, 73000 Fred Waring Dr.  Palm Desert, CA 92260 - Tickets are $25, $75 and $125 only through the McCallum Box Office: 760-340-2787
