Weekend Pick

Jamie Foxx's Oscar-winning turn as Ray Charles in the 2004 biopic Ray may have renewed interest in the man himself, but fact is, Charles' music had established him as an American icon long before Jamie even thought about putting on a pair of prosthetics.

It is Charles' music -- and only the music -- that will be celebrated in I Can't Stop Loving You , the jukebox musical that makes its United States tour premiere Tuesday at the Academy of Music in Philly.

It's in town for only a week, but it promises to be a high-energy show that will be well worth taking in -- if only to hear former Raelette Regi Brown growl "Ba-bay!" on the classic, "Night Time is the Right Time."
