Hadestown at Grand Opera House


Cleaning up during the 2018/19 awards season, plucky folk opera Hadestown garnered eight Tony Awards (including the coveted Tony for Best Musical), four Drama Desk Awards, six Outer Critics Circle Awards, and a Drama League Award. This came as no surprise given the production received much acclaim during both its Off-Broadway and Broadway runs, praised for its soaring imagination, vibrant retelling of a classic story, and a sumptuous score that evokes smoky New Orleans jazz and bubbling Americana-tinged folk. Don't miss out when the lauded musical hits the road on this hotly anticipated national tour!

Described by comedy peer Lewis Black as the "funniest woman in America", the winner of the American Comedy Award for Best Female Comedian is a triple threat; as well as her sell-out tours, Madigan is a favorite on late-night talk shows and nationally syndicated radio shows. With an enviable career spanning three decades on the comedy circuit, she has the distinction of being one of few comics to appear on every major late-night show including Leno, Letterman, Conan, and Ferguson.

Dionne Warwick at Grand Opera House

Dionne Warwick

One of the greatest singers of 20th Century, Dionne Warwick had a string of huge hit singles throughout the 1960s, and was the singer of choice for songwriting giants Burt Bacharach and Hal David. While many other American artists found themselves sidelined by the British invasion, Warwick continued to see success with iconic tracks like 'Walk on By', 'Alfie', 'I Say a Little Prayer for You', 'Do You Know the Way to San Jose' and 'This Girl's in Love with You'.

Old Crow Medicine Show at Grand Opera House

Old Crow Medicine Show

Discovered busking in North Carolina by the legendary Doc Watson, the Old Crows were showing off their retro string sound when they were invited to play at The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN. From these auspicious beginnings, they went on to weave a pattern of old-time soul and blues across the country, inspiring the new folk wave, as well as a collaboration on the now platinum song 'Wagon Wheel' with Bob Dylan. Old Crow Medicine Band are a spectacular link to the past, with a contemporary vibe.
