Yes, The Egg is goin’ to the dogs… or rather the dogs are comin’ to The Egg.

Here are the details of the four newly announced shows for The Egg:

Olate Dogs, winners of “America’s Got Talent” – Season 7 – features the amazing circus stunts and tricks performed by the ultra-talented dogs trained by Richard & Nicholas Olate.

LOUDON WAINWRIGHT III
Friday, October 2, 8pm
Loudon Wainwright III, by far and away the most candid of the singer-songwriters who brought confessional poetry into popular song, has more than two dozen album releases including a 2010 Grammy. At The Egg, he’ll perform “Surviving Twin” – a very special evening that combines music, storytelling and images that that span four generations of the Wainwright clan.
Friday, November 20, 8pm.
Since emerging as a finalist in the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute’s vocal competition, Jane Monheit has remained as one of the most captivating jazz singers of her generation.
