JANUARY 18, 2014 – 7:30 PM

Following in the path of classic harmony groups like Boyz II Men and The Temptations, with a mix of the classic and the contemporary, the five-member vocal band Ball in the House brilliantly blends a wide range of influences, from classic R&B to pop, hip-hop & gospel. With their extensive tour schedule (averaging 250 dates a year), Ball in the House reaches millions and is arguably one of the hardest working, most successful A Capella groups today.

They have performed with such artists as The Beach Boys, Gladys Knight, The Jonas Brothers, Jessica Simpson, Fantasia, Blondie, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, KC & The Sunshine Band, Kool & the Gang, and numerous others. This is pop/soul/R&B a cappella…music that’ll move ya. A review from the Boston Globe put it very succinctly – “Ball in the House has everything you would expect to find in a successful pop/rock band….the one thing it doesn’t have is instruments.”

SAY GOODNIGHT GRACIEgracie web

FEBRUARY 8, 2014 – 7:30 PM

The hit Broadway play, “Say Goodnight Gracie”, invites you to spend a hilarious, heart-warming evening in the uplifting company of the world’s favorite and funniest centenarian, George Burns, who spanned over 90 years of American entertainment history, is now alive and kicking — and singing and dancing! — in a stunning tour de force solo performance. With vintage photographs and video clips from film and television performances, “Say Goodnight Gracie” brings to life Burns’s fascinating story.

In Say Goodnight Gracie, we discover George in limbo between this world and the next, unable to join his beloved wife and partner Gracie Allen until he gives the Command Performance of his lifetime for God. He looks back upon his impoverished, plucky youth on the lower East Side of New York… his disastrous but tenacious career in Vaudeville … the momentous day when he meet a fabulously talented young Irish girl named Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen … their instant chemistry, with his flawless timing a perfect mate to her dizzy delivery … his wooing of her, their marriage and their rise to the pinnacles of Vaudeville, Movies, Radio and Television. Gracie’s demise forced George to start from square one in life and in his career, eventually achieving an equal level of success as a solo raconteur and Academy Award-winning actor in the “Sunshine Boys” and “Oh, God.”

Say Goodnight Gracie was Broadway’s third longest running solo performance show and was nominated for a 2003 Tony Award for BEST PLAY and won the 2003-04 National Broadway Theatre Award for BEST PLAY.

4 LADS FROM LIVERPOOL4LFL_PressPhoto_01

JUNE 21, 2014

Many of those who witnessed The Beatles perform live on the Ed Sullivan show February 9,1964 were inspired to become musicians. The feeling a musician gets performing on-stage is a true gift.

Performing in a technically challenging show portraying The Beatles is something few can do well. It takes dedicated musicians that are able to replicate their distinct sound, mannerisms, energy and charm. Over the years the members of 4 Lads from Liverpool have been dedicated to perfecting their craft. It is the right mix of intangible qualities and chemistry that sets them apart from other Beatle tribute bands.

The show takes you through an epic journey that begins in the early days in Hamburg, Germany and the Cavern Club in Liverpool, then fast forwards to the Sgt Pepper era and beyond. Paired with an amazing multimedia experience, you get to see, hear and feel how it all got started. We know you will love this presentation of an era that was shaped by these “4 Lads from Liverpool”.
