Donna Summer commanded radio waves in 1975 with “Love to Love You Baby.” But it was summer 1978’s “Last Dance” that earned her a Grammy and two American Music Awards. That track marked the dawning of an epic era including “MacArthur Park,” “Bad Girls,” “Hot Stuff,” “Heaven Knows,” “Dim All the Lights,” and “On the Radio.” But when she wasn’t being Disco Donna, Summer relaxed in East Hampton and Shelter Island with husband Bruce Sudano and daughters Brooklyn, Amanda, and Mimi. Summer: The Donna Summer Musical celebrates the musician’s life and grit six years after her death. Starring Tony Award winner LaChanze, Ariana DeBose, and Storm Lever, it’s an emotional tribute featuring over 20 of the singer’s hits, proving that it’s Donna’s summer yet again.
