David Sedaris

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated American humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor. Much of his humor is is drawn from his unusual North Carolina background, his varied stream of odd-jobs (Christmas elf at Macy's, anyone?) and plays to his self-deprecating strengths, and now often concerns his life today in France with his partner.

The creators of the acclaimed Black Watch, director John Tiffany and choreographer Steven Hoggett, join forces with playwright/screenwriter Enda Walsh to bring the hit independent film Once, winner of a 2007 Academy Award for the hit song "Falling Slowly", to the stage.

Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus

Belding Theater

June 11-13, 2015

Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus is a hilarious one-man show which takes on the classic battle of the sexes in a part comedy theatre, part stand-up format, which takes on every topic, from the dating to the bedroom! A great date night out and girl's night out, where you'll laugh and learn about the opposite sex.

Kinky Boots

Mortensen Hall - Bushnell Theatre

June 23-28, 2015

Kinky Boots is one of Broadway's most successful new musicals, snapping up six 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical!
