The Cher Show is based on the life of Cherilyn Sarkisian La Piere Bono Allman or as her friends call her, Cher! The kid on a tricycle, vowing to be famous. The teenage phenom who crashes by twenty. The glam TV star who quits at the top. The would-be actress with an Oscar. The rock goddess with a hundred million records sold. The legend who's done it all, still scared to walk on stage. The wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. The woman, looking for love. The ultimate survivor, chasing her dream. They're all here, dressed to kill, singing their asses off, telling it like it is. And they're all the star of The Cher Show. This new musical will feature her beloved chart-topping hits, including "If I Could Turn Back Time," "Believe," "I Got You Babe," "Strong Enough," "Half Breed," "I Found Someone," "A Dfferent Kind of Love Song," "Take Me Home," and "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves."

OC Performance
Open Captioned Performance
Saturday, February 2, 2019, 2:00 p.m. br />
Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, 261 West 47th Street, NYC
Tickets: $74.00



For half a century, the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys has been dedicated to the education of strong, ethical black men. One talented student has been waiting for years to take his rightful place as the leader of the legendary gospel choir. But can he make his way through the hallowed halls of this institution if he sings in his own key? On its US debut at MTC’s Studio at Stage II, The New York Times called the play “vivid, magnetic and moving,” and The New York Post hailed it as “bracing and provocative.” Now, we’re thrilled to bring this soaring music-filled work to Broadway. Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney is an Oscar®-winning screenwriter of Moonlight and a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship Grant. Directing is Trip Cullman (Murder Ballad).

SEA WALL/A LIFE

OC Performance
Open Captioned Performance
Saturday, February 16, 2019, 2:00 p.m.

The Public Theater
425 West Lafayette Street, NYC
Tickets: on sale soon

Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Sunday in the Park with George, Constellations, If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet) and Tony Award nominee Tom Sturridge (Orphans, 1984, On The Road) make their Public Theater debut in an unforgettable and incredibly intimate evening of theater. Sturridge, in his third collaboration with Tony and Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens (Heisenberg, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), performs SEA WALL, an astonishing monologue about love and the human need to know the unknowable. Gyllenhaal continues his artistic collaboration with Olivier Award-nominated playwright Nick Payne (Constellations, If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet) in A LIFE, a meditation on how we say goodbye to those we love most. Directed by Carrie Cracknell (A Doll’s House, The Deep Blue Sea), this heart-filled exploration of the beauty of life and meaning of love is a must-see evening of dramatic storytelling at its best.
