Here are the details:
CABARET: ALAN CUMMING: LEGAL IMMIGRANT
Thursday, April 25, 7:30pm
$35.50, $45.50, $55.50 & $69.50
The Tony Award winning actor-singer who broke through to stardom in the Broadway and West End productions of Cabaret has been touring with his cabaret shows, I Bought a Blue Car Today and Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs in recent years. Now he’s back with a meditation on his 10 years as an American citizen and the experiences and change he has witnessed during his time living in the States. Featuring songs made famous by Adele, Peggy Lee and Edith Piaf and composers as diverse as Cole Porter, Sondheim and Schubert.
COMEDY: CAPITOL STEPS
Thursday, May 9, 7:30pm
$29.50, $35.50 & $44.50
Elevating political satire to an art form, the Washington DC-based comedy troupe that began as a group of Senate Staffers will present a show based on songs from their current album Make America Grin Again. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Republican or Democrat, a snowflake or a deplorable: neither side is safe from the group that puts the “MOCK” in Democracy!
MUSIC: PICKERS’ PARADISE: FROM THE BALKANS TO BLUEGRASS
Friday, May 10, 7:30pm
$15; students $5
Bluegrass and tamburitza music are two dazzling, virtuosic string ensemble traditions that have emerged from very different cultural communities: one is rooted in urban/industrial immigrant culture, while the other was born in the uplands of the American South. But they have much in common, as you’ll hear in this cross-cultural concert featuring Tamburaški Sastav Ponoć from Pittsburgh and Danny Knicely’s Next Generation from the Shenandoah Valley.
