Jason Downs’s one-man-with-a-band show comes to the Rosendale Theatre for a special one night performance. Originally developed at the Shadowland Theater in Ellenville, the show chronicles the life of child-actor Jason Downs, who reached his celebrity zenith at age 11. Since then, he has performed in minor film roles like the original Hairspray and Clara’s Heart with Whoopi Goldberg, made appearances on “Saturday Night Live” and nationally televised commercials, and even signed a record deal with Jive, which led to a top 20 hit in the UK and a European tour. Downs and the band documents his journey toward ever-elusive fame and comments on celebrity culture in America today through the songs of Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, and the Doors. October 27, 8pm.
