An Afternoon with Rita Moreno Sunday, September 18, 2016 • 4 p.m. Mainstage Theatre For pairing an afternoon of story with song, Rita Moreno is both master chef and sommelier. The table is set with a full course that includes some of Rita’s favorites from the American Songbook—Broadway classics (including selections from West Side Story, Sunset Boulevard, Master Class), Swing, Jazz, selections from her new Spanish album, Una Vez Más (produced by Emilio Estefan) and even Rap. Rita does it all and has it all — the Emmy (2), Grammy, Oscar, Tony, Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement, Presidential Medal of Freedom, National Medal of Arts, SAG Life Achievement Award and a 2015 Kennedy Center Honor. And ... don’t forget the dessert ... a confection of experiences, anecdotes and encounters collected over her storied lifetime.


Second City — “Free Speech! (while supplies last)” Saturday, October 15, 2016 • 8 p.m. Mainstage Theatre The Second City Touring Company performs “Free Speech! (while supplies last),” an irreverent look at America’s electoral insanity. This topical new show features political satire made famous by Second City stars like Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert and Keegan-Michael Key. It’s a must-see evening of comedy that features some of Chicago’s best and brightest and a majority of laughs.

FAME—The Musical Sunday, November 6, 2016 • 3 p.m. & 7 p.m. Mainstage Theatre Derived from the award-winning film and television series, FAME – The Musical follows the incredible journey of a group of vibrant, multi-cultural young artists at New York’s High School of Performing Arts. Featuring music for the ages, this riveting theatrical odyssey inspires audiences to embrace their talents and follow their dreams.


Tomáseen Foley’s A Celtic Christmas Sunday, December 18, 2016 • 4 p.m. Mainstage Theatre From the infinite treasury of Ireland’s cultural heritage comes Tomáseen Foley’s A Celtic Christmas — a recreation of a night before Christmas in a remote farmhouse in the West of Ireland in the 1940s. Neighbors gather around the fireside for a night of traditional Irish music, song, dance and storytelling f­ rom native Irish storyteller, Tomáseen Foley. There is magic in the air when the neighbors knock sparks off the flagstone floors with their dancing and the rafters sing with fiery traditional music. A wholesome Christmas show for all the family to enjoy.

Masters of Soul Saturday, January 14, 2017 • 8 p.m. Mainstage Theatre The Temptations, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Diana Ross and the Supremes, The Jackson Five, and Stevie Wonder are just some of the iconic Motown artists who have earned their place in the history of all popular music. In this ultimate stroll down memory lane, Masters of Soul celebrates these artists and many more via incredible harmonies, stylish costumes and endless smooth moves.


In The Mood Sunday, February 19, 2017 • 3 p.m. Mainstage Theatre In the Mood celebrates the music of the 1930s and 40s – the Big Band era — with a sensational 13-piece String of Pearls Orchestra and fabulous singers and dancers. The great melodies and lyrics that are still with us today are presented in a musical revue that is jazzy, sentimental, rhythmic, nostalgic and patriotic.

“You’ve Got A Friend”

The Music of Carole King and James Taylor Sunday March 26, 2017 • 4 p.m. Mainstage Theatre This nostalgic concert performance pays homage to the music, lyrics and melodies that comprise the timeless songbook of Carole King and James Taylor. Two long-time friends and collaborators, hit songwriter, Kirsti Manna, and national recording artist, Jonathan Birchfield, share their incredible onstage chemistry and unique artistry, capturing the essence of friendship through music.


The Magic of Bill Blagg LIVE! Saturday, April 8, 2017 • 7 p.m. Mainstage Theatre Bill Blagg is one of the nation’s top touring illusionists, thrilling thousands and leaving people in complete disbelief as he creates the impossible. Prepare to be amazed as he passes through the blades of an industrial fan, shrinks his body to just 6" tall and instantly teleports across the theatre!

“The Long and Winding Road” Starring Jim Witter Saturday, May 13, 2017 • 8 p.m. Mainstage Theatre The Beatles captured the world’s attention with their songs, providing a musical soundtrack to the historical events of the ‘60s and ‘70s.
