Art Garfunkel

Rock, Folk, Pop
Blessed with what The New York Times described as a "beautiful countertenor," singer Art Garfunkel has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled, Grammy Award-winning Simon & Garfunkel. Their greatest hits collection, which includes "Mrs. Robinson," "Scarborough Fair," "The Sound of Silence," "The Boxer," and "Bridge Over Troubled Water," among others, is the biggest selling album ever by a duo. Garfunkel has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of poetry and recently released his 12th solo album, titled "Some Enchanted Evening," on Atco Records. "Some Enchanted Evening" is a musical celebration of material from the 20th century's greatest songwriters, including Rodgers & Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Antonio Carlos Jobim and George Gershwin.

Darlene Love

Pop
Darlene Love has been hailed throughout her career as one of the greatest singers in pop music, and in her mid-70s, she's still going strong. Love, one of the legendary singers fronting Phil Spector's Wall of Sound, is best known for singing lead (attributed to The Crystals) on the 1962 smash "Ne's a Rebel," and for her 1963 holiday classic, "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)." Her appearances every Christmastime for 29 years on David Letterman's show revived her musical career. On screen, she played Danny Glover's wife in the four "Lethal Weapon" films, and she played a prominent role in the 2014 Oscar-winning documentary "20 Feet From Stardom."

The Soap Myth

Staged Reading
Don't miss seven time Emmy Award-winner Ed Asner and Tony/Drama Desk Award-nominated actress Johanna Day in a one-night only, staged-reading performance of Jeff Cohen's The Soap Myth. More than a half century after the end of WWII a young journalist sets out to write an article about a cantankerous Holocaust survivor and his crusade regarding the Nazi atrocity of soap. The play dramatically explores how a survivor survives surviving and questions who has the right to write history - those who have lived it and remember, those who study and protect it, or those who would seek to distort and desecrate its very existence.

Generously underwritten by Judith Carney and Linda Haller Revel in an evening of iconic American music by one of the most indelible composers of the 20th century, George Gershwin. Nearly a century after the songs were composed, Gershwin's music remains as fresh and irresistible as it did during the Jazz Age. His poetic melodies and eclectic oeuvre of everything including Broadway, Hollywood, opera and classic American standards have left a legacy audiences love to hear again and again. The Gershwin Big Band led by Michael Andrew, whom the New York Post called "the next Harry Connick Jr. ... a natural bandleader," brings George Gershwin's music to life in this brand-new program.

His astounding covers -- which, on the surface, seem hilarious, sung in sad key by a clown, but in reality are rather emotional and nuanced -- include Lorde's "Royals," Tears for Fears' "Mad World," David Bowie's "Space Oddity," Blink-182's "All the Small Things" and a to-be-believed mashup of The Who's "Pinball Wizard" and Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues."

Moscow Festival Ballet, led by Artistic Director Sergei Radchenko, brings to life two of the most enduring and romantic programs in the canon of dance. Les Sylphides (Chopiniana) Choreography by: Mikhail Fokine Music by: Frederic Chopin This short, one act, non-narrative ballet is often described as a "romantic reverie" and some say the first ballet to be simply about mood and dance It is composed of a suite of dances in the romantic atmosphere of a moonlit park with the sylphides, spirits in the air, dancing with the "poet" in search of the ideal. Romeo and Juliet Choreography by: Elena Radchenko based on sketches by Marius Pepita Music by: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky First love, age-old hate: with its primal passions and timeless themes, Romeo and Juliet has inspired ballet's greatest choreographers. This traditional production to Tchaikovsky's heart-rending music has drama at its core.
