Description

This charming musical is dedicated to the man who came to personify American popular music during the last century.

Irving Berlin came from rags to riches, rising above the tenements of the Lower East Side to become the most popular and highest-paid songwriter in the world. On the last night of his life, Berlin is visited by a young man who takes him on a journey through his memories to shine a bright light on the legacy he has created.

Filled to the brim with many of his greatest hits, including Alexander’s Ragtime Band, Cheek to Cheek, Puttin’ On The Ritz, I Love A Piano,  A Simple Melody and many more, Berlin’s inspiring story is the true embodiment of the American spirit, and is sure to inspire and delight audiences of all ages.

A tribute to legendary songwriter Irving Berlin and part of the NorShor Concert Series, come and enjoy an evening of classic Berlin songs performed by a professional singing ensemble made up of Shad Olsen, Vicki Fingalson, Andy Bennett, Christina Stroup, and Joe McLaughlin, with the musical support of an 11-piece orchestra.

February 24, 2019 - February 25, 2019

Showtimes
Doors @ 6pm, Show @ 7pm (Sunday) // Doors @ 7pm, Show @ 8pm (Monday)

Description

Maria Bamford stars in the semi-autobiographical Netflix comedy series Lady Dynamite, lauded as “revelatory” by Entertainment Weekly and one of 2016’s must-see shows by Variety and Rolling Stone. The series was created by Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development) and Pam Brady (South Park).

Maria is the creator and star of Maria Bamford: the special special special and of the cult hit web series The Maria Bamford Show, which screened at the Museum of Art and Design. She was the first female comic to have two half-hour Comedy Central Presents specials and starred alongside Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis and Brian Posehn in the Comedy Central series The Comedians of Comedy and Netflix’s Comedians of Comedy: The Movie.

Maria voices characters on numerous animated series including BoJack Horseman, Adventure Time, Legend of Korra, Puss in Boots and PBS’s Emmy- winning series Word Girl. She can also be heard voicing lead roles on Fox’s Golan the Insatiable and Yahoo’s Talking Tom & Friends.

Maria recurred as DeBrie Bardeaux on Netflix’s Arrested Development reboot, for which she was praised as a “standout” (TIME) and “perhaps one of the high points of the entire new season” (Black Book Magazine). She has also recurred on USA’s Benched, FX’s critically-praised Louie, and currently recurs on the ABC hit Fresh Off the Boat. Her new special Old Baby is available on Netflix.

*Comedian Jackie Kashian – Jokesmith has been added as the opener for both performances as of January 15, 2019.*

Postmodern Jukebox

Welcome to the Twenties 2.0 Tour

Dates
March 3, 2019

Showtimes
Doors @ 7pm, Show @ 8pm

Description

To usher in the upcoming Twenty-Twenties, famed time-twisting musical collective Postmodern Jukebox will circumnavigate the globe in 2019 on their Welcome to the Twenties 2.0 Tour. The tour is meant to prepare the world for a new decade—one that Postmodern Jukebox creator Scott Bradlee hopes will see a return to the style and craftsmanship that typified the music of past generations.

“Last time around the ‘Twenties gave us Jazz, America’s one true art form. Who knows what is possible in the 2020s?” says Bradlee. “One thing that is for sure is that there are a lot of folks that are tired of the clickbait headlines, mindless reality TV, and smartphone addiction that has only served to divide people in the last decade. We’re using our small corner of the pop culture space to tell people to forget their troubles and come to join us for a night of celebrating true musical talent and timeless style – live and in real life.”

The Postmodern Jukebox, Welcome to the Twenties 2.0 Tour, will host official Twenties 2.0 initiation performance parties in nearly 250 cities.

Started by Bradlee in 2009, Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ) has gone on to amass over one billion YouTube views with 3.5 million subscribers and have chalked up more than 1.7 million fans on Facebook. For the past half-decade, PMJ has toured the world, playing hundreds of shows to sold-out houses on six continents. They’ve also performed on shows like “Good Morning America,” topped iTunes and Billboard charts, and caught the attention of NPR Music, NBC News and a wide array of celebrity fans.
