THEATRE, CONCERT ARTIST LYNNMARIE RINK SIGNS WITH REPS,
STAGES WORLD PREMIERE RUN OF “WRAP YOUR HEART AROUND IT”
The Marc Whitmore Organization, in association with Richard A. Burkhart and DreaMakers, Inc., announces its management of five-time Grammy nominee and solo theatre artist LynnMarie Rink.
“Marc and Richard have championed the careers of so many artists over the years. I’m really excited to be represented by them, and I value their support,” LynnMarie stated.
LynnMarie’s stage work, “Wrap Your Heart Around It,” opens this month for its world premiere run at the Falcon Theatre in Toluca Lake (Los Angeles/Hollywood), California. Through music and humor, the play tells the searingly honest story of LynnMarie’s upbringing in a dysfunctional household, juggling family and career, and being the mom of a special needs child.
“It’s a story I want to share,” LynnMarie said about “Wrap,” whose arcs range from hysterical highs to the deeply personal. “No matter what people are going through, there’s always something here they can relate to and find encouragement from.”
The show, directed by stage veteran Michael Kearns and produced by noted television director and producer Paul Miller, is scheduled to run through August 11th at the theatre owned by actor/director Garry Marshall. Paul Carrol Binkley, known to audiences for his work of many years with the Southern rock superband Alabama, is the show’s musical director.
Of more than 100 entries in last year’s United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City, “Wrap Your Heart Around It,” took top honors for best production. The same-titled autobiography is expected to be in print and released later this year.
For many years LynnMarie has been known to audiences throughout the world for her song stylings and artistry with the diatonic button accordion. With performances ranging from tender Old World ballads to electrifying New World showstoppers, LynnMarie has attracted devoted followers whose tastes cross a variety of musical genres, from polka to pop. Likewise, her work continues to be critically acclaimed by peers throughout the music industry. With 13 albums to her credit, LynnMarie has been nominated five times for Grammys from the Recording Academy. She has appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and in performances with music legends Chet Atkins, Vince Gill and Willie Nelson. She also frequently performs as guest artist on recordings and in concerts with other entertainment headliners.
LynnMarie Rink lives in Nashville with her husband Jim, a network television producer, and their son James.
Marc Whitmore and Richard Burkhart have partnered for decades in entertainment development and management representing individual artists, concert tours, television specials and main stage events from Broadway to the White House.

Falcon Theatre is proud to present Paul Miller’s production of Wrap Your Heart Around It, written, composed and performed by Five-time Grammy nominated Nashville musician LynnMarie Rink. Produced by Emmy award winning producer/director Paul Miller and directed by the acclaimed Michael Kearns, with musical direction by Nashville recording artist Paul Carrol Binkley, Wrap Your Heart Around It won Best Production of the 2012 United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City and has been catching the attention of industry professionals and fans alike.
This powerful one-woman show chronicles the true story of LynnMarie Rink’s life-long struggles with her father’s alcoholism, her own religious beliefs, and eventually as the forty-year-old mother of a special needs child. “My hope,” says LynnMarie, “is that my story, told with an entertaining approach, will provide encouragement to people facing issues like depression, being an adult child of an alcoholic, parenting a special-needs child and dealing with unexpected life challenges.” Filled with inspiring humor and exciting musical performances, LynnMarie’s story is one of triumph and acceptance.
