Award-winning stage and screen stars Kaye Ballard, Liliane Montevecchi and Lee Roy Reams will join forces for Doin’ It For Love, which is billed as a "Broadway-style tribute to the standards and the stories behind the music."

Also directed by Reams, the production will open in Austin, TX, Feb. 25 at the Paramount Theatre and will then play Los Angeles' Wilshire Ebell Theatre March 9-10.

The artists will be backed by a 10-piece orchestra conducted on stage by David Geist, the show’s music director.

“I am honored to perform and work with two of show business’ most celebrated performers," Reams said in a statement. "Doin’ It For Love tells the personal stories behind the music by Kaye, Liliane, and myself. Not only do we perform the music, but we entertain the audience with stories about the entertainment world then and now. We are premiering the show in Texas and Los Angeles to give audiences the first glimpse of what is sure to become a hit with discussions of taking Doin’ It For Love to the West End and Broadway.”

The two-act show features solo numbers, duets and trios.
