Join entertainment icons The Lennon Sisters on a dazzling journey in the new musical event, THE LENNON SISTERS: SAME SONG, SEPARATE VOICES. This is the definitive musical portrait of the iconic singing group, inductees to the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and now the longest performing sister act in American history, based on the quartet’s best-selling memoir of the same name.
This joyful and exuberant musical documentary of the singing sisters; who first rose to fame as child performers on television’s The Lawrence Welk Show before becoming one of the nation’s most popular and acclaimed vocal groups through their appearances on the top variety series of the day including The Andy Williams Show and The Ed Sullivan Show, best-selling recordings, and live concert performances, is a celebration of the group’s 55 years in show business.
Crafted from countless hours of rare archival footage and never-before-seen family home movies, plus newly shot interview and concert footage featuring the Sisters and their friends and entertainment colleagues Andy Williams and Kathie Lee Gifford, THE LENNON SISTERS: SAME SONG, SEPARATE VOICES contains current and classic full-length musical performances of “On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever)”, “S’ Wonderful”, “Come Saturday Morning”, “Heather on the Hill”, “In My Life”, “Sophisticated Lady”, “L-O-V-E”, “You Go to My Head”, “Bluesette”, “Sunny”, “One Less Bell to Answer”, “Motherless Child” and many more highlighting their iconic and intricate familial harmonies.
For the very first time the original singing quartet - Dianne (Dee Dee), Peggy, Kathy and Janet - along with their younger sister Mimi (who now performs with Kathy & Janet as the Lennon Sisters trio) candidly share the inspirational journey of the intimate highs and lows of their lives in show business; from their early days on television to their own variety series - The Lennon Sisters Hour and the headline grabbing murder of their father; from their controversial break with The Lawrence Welk Show to working with Andy Williams for 10 years on his weekly variety show and in concert at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas; from their days of extensive record-breaking appearances in nightclubs, theatres and state fairs to their continuing career today, not just as performers but also as toymakers, with a line of toys & dolls called “Best Pals” designed by Kathy & Janet to take kids and their parents back to a simpler time.
Produced by Polly O. Entertainment (the Emmy-winning team of Rene Reyes and Shane Rosamonda whose previous musical documentaries include the Emmy-winning "Mitzi Gaynor: Razzle, Dazzle! The Special Years" and "Christmas with the King Family Reunion").
