MEMPHIS is the winner of four Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The show’s Tony Award-winning original score features music by Bon Jovi’s founding member and keyboardist David Bryan and lyrics by Bryan and Joe DiPietro. Get ready to experience Broadway’s most exciting new destination.

The story is loosely based on D.J. Dewey Phillips

Cost: Adult $21-$24 Student & Youth $11-$12

red, black & GREEN: a blues is a visceral, interactive and moving work that employs spoken-word poetry, storytelling, music, dance and movement to bring the stories and voices of black America into the center of a conversation about race, class, culture and the environment.

In performances ranging from deeply sad to hilariously funny, new and inspiring definitions of sustainability emerge from tales of survival and the complex beauty and struggle of human interdependence. We visit four seasons and four cities in a quest to understand the challenges of “browning the green movement.” The four cast members lead us through urban realities as they unfold in shotgun houses, subway cars, park benches and father-son conversations. This poignant line from the script sums up the issues explored in the production:

“I ask a mother about environment, and she tells me of guns, of emotionally disabled boys whose green movement consists of recycling the sorry narrative of black-on-black crime.”

Lawrence, KS, United States, 66044
Cost: Adult $35-$44 Student & Youth $17-$22

In Mark Twain Tonight!, Tony and Emmy Award-winning Hal Holbrook brings the famous author to life in an often comic, dramatic recitation of his writings. Holbrook began performing as Twain in 1954. In 1966, his second New York engagement won a Tony Award and a Drama Critics’ Circle Award followed by a CBS television special.

It all began as an honor’s project, focusing on Mark Twain at Denison University in Granville, Ohio. It has since turned into a beloved stage performance. Holbrook continues to perfect this performance, drawing upon his vast experience on the stage and screen. He has no set program — he chooses material as he goes along. There is an emphasis on Twain’s comedic material, and Holbrook always includes an excerpt from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Holbrook has since written two books about playing Mark Twain, the first was in 1968, entitled Mark Twain Tonight! An Actor’s Portrait and the second in 2011, titled Harold: The Boy Who Became Mark Twain.
