Ocean County College and the Gia Maione Prima Foundation present Carolyn Dorfman Dance in the world premiere of PRIMA!

In PRIMA!, Carolyn Dorfman and Company celebrate the 5-decade career and range of the inimitable Louis Prima. Using full songs, including the iconic “Sing Sing Sing” and “Just A Gigolo/Ain’t Got Nobody and musical collage, Dorfman and her versatile and dynamic company explore the robust, driving and buoyant sound of Louis Prima and his band. Dorfman, too, features the powerful, virtuosic and expressive voices of Prima’s female lead singers, Gia Maione Prima and Keely Smith in such delights as “I Want You To Be My Baby,” and “Undecided”. It is the strength, nuance and playful, yet firm, dialogue and banter of these women with Prima, that inspires Dorfman most. PRIMA! takes audiences on a joyous ride through time, love, relationships and connections.
