The Iceman Cometh

Harvey Lichtenstein Theater

This New York premiere of Eugene O'Neill's epic play will star Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy. The production previously ran in Chicago in 2012 to much acclaim, and now heads to Broadway with its original cast intact.

Kodo Drummers

Gilman Opera House

March 19-21, 2015

Experience the power and majesty of Taiko drumming as the internationally celebrated Kodo Drummers bring this ancient art form to the US. Taking their name from a Japanese word that can either mean 'heartbeat' or 'children of the drum', the group has performed on every continent, sewing the seeds of their spiritual message in their pulsating, driving rhythms.

The Tallest Tree In The Forest

Harvey Lichtenstein Theater

March 26-28, 2015

One of 20th Century America's most dynamic figures is brought to life in Daniel Beaty's one man play. It explores the life of Paul Robeson, the singer who conquered Broadway, The West End and Hollywood, but was dogged by accusations of being a communist sympathiser for much of his lifetime.
