BEAUTIFUL – THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL


ANOTHER YEAR OF EPIC PERFORMANCES! What a roll we’re on! Last season, you spent almost as much time on your feet cheering as you did comfortably seated in the theatre. The year featured epic September performances by the legendary Boz Scaggs and the genius that is Wynton Marsalis. Then, we soared with high-powered Broadway shows and brilliant performances by Pilobolus, Ballet Folklórico de México, Tommy Emmanuel, Jon Batiste, Lily Tomlin, Joshua Bell, Damien Sneed with We Shall Overcome, and many more. As a follow-up, our 35th season may well be our best yet. The big Broadway line-up includes contemporary hits Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and Waitress, as well as the iconic classic An American in Paris and a huge spectacle show, The Illusionists: Live from Broadway. Music will be featured with longtime favorites Pink Martini; ukulele savant Jake Shimabukuro; Broadway, film and TV star Mandy Patinkin; and Motown chanteuse Thelma Houston. Dance highlights will include The Hip Hop Nutcracker — a fresh take on the timeless classic — and the stunning Aspen Santa Fe Ballet. We’ll have great intimate concerts in the Spanos Theatre with acoustic guitar guru Leo Kottke, renowned jazz pianist George Winston, and A.J. Croce performing a loving tribute to the memory of his father, the late Jim Croce. Last season, we debuted the very successful National Geographic Live series, which we are proud to be bringing back in partnership with the Performing Arts Center. We’re also launching the exciting LatinX Series to better serve the Central Coast Latino community. The series kicks off with three events, headlined by a stand-up performance by popular comedian George Lopez. Other LatinX concerts will feature the cool Los Angeles-based Chicano band Las Cafeteras and the fabulous female Mariachi band Flor de Toloache. When you explore this new season, I’m confident you’ll find four or more “must-see” performances to create a season subscription. Pair that order with a Cal Poly Arts VIP Membership and you’ll receive substantial discounts on ticket purchases and other subscriber and VIP Member benefits. To help you with your selections, at right are a few of my personal recommendations for shows that I’m sure you’ll enjoy. As always, please feel free to contact me if you have questions or comments about our programs. I look forward to seeing you at our venues for the new season ahead! Best wishes, ASPEN SANTA FE BALLET

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11 8:00 PM | SPANOS THEATRE | CONTEMPORARY

This iconic acoustic guitarist is known for a fingerpicking style that draws on blues, jazz and folk music, as well as syncopated, polyphonic melodies. He overcame a series of personal obstacles, including partial loss of hearing and a nearly career-ending bout with tendon damage in his right hand, to emerge as a widely recognized master of his instrument. For his Spanos concert, Kottke will intersperse humorous monologues with vocal and instrumental selections spanning the entirety of his career, played solo on his sixand 12-string guitars.

“Whoever your favorite guitarist might be, and I am thinking only of the greats — Chet Atkins, Merle Travis and Doc Watson — they wouldn’t want to be in the same room with Kottke, which is probably why he plays solo.” – Folk Works Sponsored by Mary Kay Harrington & Thom Brajkovich, KCBX 90.1 FM

Long before she was Carole King the chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein — Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager, and by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice. Beautiful – The Carole King Musical tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom — from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation. Featuring a stunning array

of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil, including “I Feel The Earth Move,” “One Fine Day,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “You’ve Got A Friend,” and the title song. Beautiful took home two 2014 Tony Awards and a 2015 Grammy Award, with a book by Tony Award-nominee and Academy Awardnominated writer Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni, and choreography by Josh Prince.

“… Waipuna … honors the Hawaiian language and displays the art of Hawaiian poetry in song.” –KKCR FM “The symphonic blends of Waipuna … are so melodic, they sooth the soul!” – Hawaiian 105 KINE Radio 

Its creations, including the popular Saloon presented at the PAC in 2018, have been performed for more than 3.5 million people over 5,000 times in 575 cities all over the world.

Don’t miss NYGASP’s all-new production of The Mikado. The history and inspiration for the writing of The Mikado is center stage as they combine the real-life characters of Victorian London’s D’Oyly Carte Opera Company with the imagined setting of Titipu. At the outset, you’ll join Messrs. Gilbert, Sullivan and D’Oyly Carte on a fantastic voyage to a land where the timeless libretto, beautiful music, and all of your favorite characters await! There are the three little maids from school, a wandering minstrel, a hilariously corrupt public official, and the Lord High Executioner. At the heart of this tale is a romantic triangle that takes the usual course of thwarted love to “happily ever after.”

“It is simply impossible to imagine an audience that wouldn’t enjoy what they do,” says the Boston Globe when speaking of Cherish the Ladies, the long-running, Grammy-nominated, Irish American super group that formed in New York City in 1985 to celebrate the rise of extraordinary women in what had been a maledominated Irish music scene. Over the past 35 years, they have toured the world, played the White House and the Olympics and recorded 17 critically acclaimed albums, including their latest release, Heart of the Home. Under the leadership of All-Ireland flute and whistle champion Joanie Madden, these ladies create an immensely entertaining evening that includes a spectacular blend of virtuoso instrumental talents, beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements, and stunning step dancing.

“(With) an astonishing array of virtuosity … the five women who form the Celtic band delivered a thoroughly engaging performance brimming with spirit, wit and soul.” – The Washington Post

BE CAREFUL ORDERING THIRD-PARTY TICKETS! The Cal Poly Ticket Office, calpolyarts.org, pacslo.org, eventbrite.com and Boo Boo Records are the only official ticketing sources for our events. If patrons buy from an outside vendor, they will likely pay inflated ticket prices, potentially have invalid tickets that will not be honored at the venue, and will not have access to Ticket Office assistance because there will be no record of that transaction.

POLY ARTS FOR YOUTH (PAFY) Poly Arts for Youth (PAFY) is Cal Poly Arts’ education enrichment program for students of all ages. Your donations enable our touring artists to engage directly with children in their classrooms and auditoriums, hold community workshops, and present master classes. Among the PAFY programs planned for the 2019-20 season are Gary Krinsky’s circus/science mash-up “Toying with Science;” a Dia de los Muertos-themed workshop with East LA’s own Las Cafeteras; a fun poetry workshop with the Story Pirates; and performer Noel Gaulin

will help students relive ”Call of The Wild ’s” incredible tale of endurance through a variety of theatre arts activities. We will hold two extended residencies: a three-day intensive residency with local high school jazz musicians rehearsing and performing with New York City’s Metta Quintet, and a six-school residency exploring California’s history with El Teatro Campesino. Two of our visiting dance companies — Lula Washington Dance Theatre and Aspen Santa Fe Ballet — as well as musicians Diego Figueiredo and Jake Shimabukuro, will hold community master classes both at Cal Poly and off campus.

Please support our educational mission by designating a donation to PAFY on your order form. Together, we can ensure that the next generation is well schooled in the arts! PAFY is supported in part by generous grants from the Cal Poly Arts Youth Arts Education Endowment, The Adrienne Fissel Youth Outreach Endowment, The Handler & Steiner Family Foundation, The Russo Family Foundation, Western States Arts Federation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and individual donors like you.
