Comedian Brad Upton
Thursday, January 11 at 7 p.m.
The world is discovering comedian Brad Upton after 36 years in the standup business. Brad was teaching the fourth grade and coaching high school track in Pasco, WA when he first stepped on stage in 1984. He quickly decided that he wanted to do standup instead, so he quit teaching in June of 1986 and never looked back. He made several cable TV appearances in the early 90s, headlined comedy clubs from coast to coast, opened for big name music acts and was hired to perform at corporate events. He never sought the brighter lights of LA or New York and chose instead to remain based in Seattle where he and his wife of 35 years raised their now 28 year old son and 26 year old daughter and he could continue his offstage hobby.
Tickets start at $25 per person for general admission.
Disenchanted! The Musical
January 12 – 21
Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm. The original storybook heroines are none-too-happy with the way they’ve been portrayed in today’s pop culture so they’ve tossed their tiaras and have come to life to set the record straight. Forget the princesses you think you know – these royal renegades are here to comically belt out the truth. Received an “Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical” nomination (Outer Critics Circle Awards) and a “Best New Off-Broadway Musical” nomination (Off Broadway Alliance). Contains adult language and content.
Tickets start at $25 per person.
Eddie Bruce, The Music and Magic of Tony Bennett
Saturday, January 27 at 7:30 p.m.
Iconic cabaret performer and bandleader Eddie Bruce makes his eagerly anticipated South Florida debut with his celebration of the living legend of song, Tony Bennett. The Music and Magic of Tony Bennett has played in concert halls and clubs all over the Northeast–including Philadelphia’s famed Kimmel Center with the Philly Pops and has been critically acclaimed by everyone from Pops’ conductor Michael Krajewski to award-winning jazz broadcaster Bob Perkins. In this singular program, Eddie backed by a trio of South Florida jazz stars sings the Bennett hits, performs several of the lesser-known works that have endeared Bennett to the worldwide jazz community and the MTV generation, and salutes an illustrious musical life well-lived. Talkin Broadway magazine deemed this show a triumph and of Eddie Bruce, cabaret legend Julie Wilson could only say, “He’s just magnetic…and what a voice.”
General admission is $35 plus taxes and fees.
