Elvis may have left the building, but his double, Ted Torres Martin, will be gracing the Athens Theatre stage for one night only on Wednesday, March 24. Martin is a multitalented actor, singer, songwriter and musician who has spent extensive time performing on tours around the world in the U.S., Germany, the United Kingdom, Austria, Italy, Japan, Norway, Singapore, Australia and Canada, to name a few.
He is the 2016 “Images of the King” world champion, and his stage-acting experience includes shows like Biloxi Blues, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Death of a Salesman.
With vocals that are the closest to Elvis you will ever hear, Martin acquired the title in Memphis, Tennessee, and was recognized by Elvis Presley Enterprises — making Martin’s portrayal of The King of Rock N’ Roll one of the top tributes in the world!
So, “don’t be cruel.” Don your white studded butterfly-collar polyester jumpsuit, grab whoever makes you “a hunk of burning love,” hold them tender, and let Ted Torres Martin’s Elvis whisk you away, because “It’s now or never”!
Elvis is in the house at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 24, at the historic Athens Theatre, 124 N. Florida Ave. in Downtown DeLand.
