APSS Honors Lee Roy Reams

PERFORMANCE PHOTOS – COCKTAIL EVENT PHOTOS. On Sunday June 12, the stars converged at the Cutting Room to honor the great Lee Roy Reams with a Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by the nonprofit American Popular Song Society (“APSS”), with a fine presentation of songs, stories, and anecdotes about working with Mr. Reams. There were also pre-recorded and recited love letters to Lee Roy from some of the performers who could not be present at the Gala, which overlapped with the Tony Awards ceremony which was being held a mile north at Radio City Music Hall.

An Evening With Anita Gillette and Lee Roy Reams

I’ve always imagined what it must have been like to attend a dinner party at Ira Gershwin’s house in Beverly Hills back in the day when, late in the evening, his friends would gather around the piano to sing. You know, all the dear pals like Fred Astaire and Judy Garland.

Lee Roy Reams – Goodbye Kentucky! Hello Broadway!

The last time we saw Lee Roy Reams, a Broadway star for 40 years, he had the dyed black hair of an older man who was not quite ready for that next chapter. The pandemic seems to have changed that for many. Now, five months short of 80, he’s gone gray, giving him the air of a senior statesman of the theater with nothing left to prove. At Feinstein’s/54 Below tonight, in the first of a two-night stand, Reams somewhat wistfully looked back at his long career in a series of stories and songs, along with some remarkable photos of his life and career on the Feinstein’s monitors.
