2023-2024 Season Preview

Mainstage Theater


Electric Avenue

What if you could experience all the youthful energy and sonic celebration that was 1980’s New Wave & Radio Pop? Every sound. Every nuance. Every time. That’s Electric Avenue. The best 80’s music hits performed the way you remember them.


Yachtley Crew

Yachtley Crew is a Los Angeles area-based band of talented and tenured musicians with a common set of goals: to entertain music lovers with some of the greatest songs ever written back in the late 70’s and early 80’s, and to have as much fun as possible while performing those hits.


Haley Reinhart

The platinum-certified Chicago-born and Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter exudes an empowering level of charisma and confidence. A timeless voice outlasts eras. It feels just as at home in the sixties as it does in the Snapchat age.


Potted Potter

A Parody by Dan and Jeff takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into seventy hilarious minutes. Even if you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, POTTED POTTER will make you roar with laughter.


Jazz at Lincoln Center presents Sing & Swing

Jazz at Lincoln Center presents Sing & Swing celebrates the Great American Songbook in all of its playful and sophisticated glory brought to life by two of this generation’s brightest stars, Bria Skonberg and Benny Benack III. Featuring songs by Gershwin, Ellington, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and many more and joined by a who’s who of New York all stars, this is an “unforgettable” evening of singin’ and swingin’ with Bria and Benny.


Trailblazing Women of Country

Through their singular voices and artistry, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton defied restrictive gender norms, proving that women can be at once beautiful and strong, vulnerable, and powerful.


Sweet Remains

The Sweet Remains is the very rare all-independent band headed by 3 gifted singer-songwriters, each of whom contribute to the writing and 3-part harmonies that define the band’s sound.


Lightwire Theatre

Lightwire Theater combines theater and technology to bring stories to life in complete darkness and are internationally recognized for their signature brand of electroluminescent artistry.


Red Hot Chili Pipers

Bagpipes with attitude, drums with a Scottish accent, and a show so hot it carries its own health warning.


Zephyr: A Whirlwind of Circus

Humans have been harnessing the power of wind for thousands of years and the beauty and efficacy of that ingenious process inspired the creative team at Cirque Mechanics to create Zephyr!, a theatrical circus show that harnesses human power, to generate an energetic acrobatic experience. A performance windmill will serve as the multifunctional mechanical centerpiece of their story. Mounted on a turntable, the windmill combines both the ancient picturesque elements (think Don Quixote!) with the transformation to a modern wind turbine providing a change of scenery in real time.

A Street Sessions


Jon McLaughlin

Singer/songwriter Jon McLaughlin specializes in a hooky, heartfelt piano pop that has led to collaborations with the likes of Sara Bareilles and Demi Lovato.

Ron Artis II

To say that Ron Artis II plays music from his heart and soul would be a bit of understatement. With his family upbringing and incredible early success, you may even say it has been pre-ordained.
