Leningrad

October 12, 2017

An exuberant explosion of folk, punk and ska, Leningrad have been one of Russia's must see bands for two decades now.

Ricky Gervais

October 25, 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!

Elf: The Musical is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan who accidentally crawls into Santa's sack of gifts and is taken to the North Pole. Buddy is raised unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth.

Rain - A Tribute to the Beatles

May 3-6, 2018

Together longer than The Beatles themselves, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary group, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that's as infectious as it is transporting. Includes the early hits to later classics that The Beatles never got the chance to play live - including the most complex and challenging songs.
