Until March 26, 2017

Forget Thunderbirds! Every child knows that if you're in need of rescue, you call Paw Patrol. The hugely successful Nickelodeon show follows the adventures of a group of brave canines, led by German Shepard Chase and tech-savvy 10-year-old Ryder, who make it their mission to help anyone in need. In 2016 Paw Patrol is headed out on its first ever live action stage tour! Expect to see all your favorite characters brought to life with the help of great costumes, video projections and upbeat music taken from the programme.

Garden of Laughs

This wildly successful all-star comedy benefit was first launched in 2013, and attracts the biggest names on the laughter circuit. Working in conjunction with children's charity The Garden of Dreams Foundation, Madison Square Garden's 2017 stand-up show will be hosted by Sopranos star, and will feature the combined talents of comedy's biggest names; Leslie Jones, Sebastian Maniscalco, Tracy Morgan, John Oliver and Chris Rock. The lineup will also feature spots by A-list entertainers and sports stars to introduce each segment!

Circus 1903 - The Golden Age of Circus

April 5-16, 2017

Blending acrobatics, performance art and cutting edge puppetry, Circus 1903 resurrects the Big Top to its former glory. Created by the minds behind The Illusionists and the puppeteers behind War Horse, this touring show is both a dazzling throwback to the circus' golden age and a thrilling evolution of the form.

Ricky Gervais

May 21, 2017

Controversial British comic Ricky Gervais is headed back this way - for his first global tour in seven years, since his Out of England I & II Tour in 2010. With Gervais promising "Humanity is my angriest, most honest and I think my best tour yet", be prepared for his irascible and caustic sense of humor, that has got considerably darker in the last 12 months following various political upheavals! 2016 marked a huge year for Gervais, with his cinematic release David Brent: Life On The Road and Netflix project Special Correspondents. There's simply no stopping this British bulldog!
