The harmonica wielding frontman of Blues Traveler, John Popper makes a stop at The Egg’s Swyer Theatre as a duo with Blues Traveler bandmate Ben Wilson (piano, backing vocals) to share “The Hits, The Stories, The Experience” at 8pm on Thursday, May 3. Tickets are $39.50.

And finally, Candice Guardino’s Italian Bred is all about food, family and funny… With her 85-minute one-woman show, Guardino introduces the audience to her entire family, slipping in and out of a variety of personas as she serves up a cookin’ comedy about growing up Italian on Staten Island. The stories in Italian Bred are derived from Candice’s own childhood experiences, as she recounts her upbringing by impersonating her family’s unique personalities, especially that of her outspoken, Grandma Frannie’s unfiltered words and wisdom. Italian Bred takes over the stage at The Egg’s Swyer Theatre at 8pm on Saturday, May 5. Tickets are on sale now, priced at $30.
