I hate it when events are one night only. Dreamworks Animation in Concert is coming to Wolftrap tomorrow night (June 30th) and I can’t go. Whine…. I live for concerts like this. It’s a fantastic way to introduce orchestral music to people who don’t like it. The concert features favorite moments from beloved films of DreamWorks Animation with music performed by the National Symphony Orchestra against the backdrop of large projection screens.
One of my favorite events of the years is Broadway’s Stars In The Alley. Every year for the last few years, the Broadway League puts on a free outdoor concert. The 2 hour event is sort of an unofficial dress rehearsal for the Tony Awards and features appearances and performances from over 30 different Broadway shows. The event is held Friday, June 3rd, in the historic Shubert Alley on West 44th, from 12:30 to 2:30 pm, rain or shine.
The nice thing is, it’s usually a well organized event and normally starts on time, so get there early! This year’s participants include performances from the cast of Something Rotten, The Color Purple, Get On Your Feet and more. The cast of Hamilton will make an appearance as well, although not performing. Here’s a full list.
Sometimes life makes you feel like you’re stuck. Sometimes it’s your own choices that get you there – the people who spend your time with or the activities where you put your energy that leave you feeling like you have nowhere to go. Other times, it’s other people’s decisions that seem to trap you.
Be our guest! Disney’s classic Beauty and the Beast lavish Broadway production arrives at Baltimore’s glorious France-Merrick Hippodrome theater for one week only – May 10 – 15. This production is a shining example of all the things that make Disney great and the one glaring thing that always annoys me.
This is going to be a total cluster. In order to even hope to get tickets to Hamilton over a Year away, you pretty much have to subscribe to The Kennedy Center’s Broadway Subscription for the next 2 seasons. That’s several thousand dollars just to see this stupid show. Now to muddle the waters even further.
A friend recently said that he had this running joke about Pitbull being everywhere. I didn’t notice this until he mentioned it and he’s right. I see his mug on TV or here him mentioned at least five times a week. Mr. Worldwide is coming to The Verizon Center, August 4th. Prince Royce is joining him on The Bad Man Tour.

As expected, Hamilton dominated the nominations for the 70th Annual Tony Awards® when they were announced this morning.
The revolutionary play garnered a record-setting 16 nominations including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score (Music & Lyrics) Written for the Theatre, several technical awards and a handful of acting awards.

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of his landmark album, Passion and Warfare, Steve Vai has announced he will be embarking on a very special world tour celebrating the groundbreaking recording. Normally I don’t care about announcements for concerts that I can’t see. But come on it’s the legendary Steve Vai! And if I dream big enough maybe they’ll fly me to one of these weird countries to see him. Hey, one can hope. Don’t crush my dreams man!
