Steel Magnolias at Lutcher Theater Making Their Lutcher Debut… LA Theater Works, broadcast weekly on public radio, performs this modern classic with their signature audio theater format featuring actors of the stage and screen, live sound effects and a spontaneous, intimate experience. STEEL MAGNOLIAS remains one of the great stories of female empowerment and resilience. The L.A. Theatre Works national tour features a diverse cast of six extraordinary women. Within the walls of Truvy’s beauty shop, set in the deep Bayou of Louisiana, are six women whose lives increasingly hinge on the existence of one another. Together, they absorb the passing seasons, just like the weathered wooden structure of the salon “home” that they share. What if, like these six women, we didn’t have to go it alone? What if the comfort we’ve been searching for has always been there, right in our own backyard? At turns, both laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, STEEL MAGNOLIAS reveals the strength of the human condition and our shared need for companionship. STEEL MAGNOLIAS was a popular film starring Sally Fields, Dolly Parton, and Julia Roberts. The play has had multiple New York City runs and performances staged around the globe. STEEL MAGNOLIAS, a play full of memorable characters, is […]

The Sound of Music at Lutcher Theater This brand-new production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, suggested by The Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp. The beloved musical story of Maria and the von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences with its Tony®, Grammy® and Academy Award®–winning Best Score, including “My Favorite Things,” “Edelweiss” and the title song. THE SOUND OF MUSIC enjoyed extraordinary success as a live television production when “The Sound of Music Live!” aired on NBC in December, 2013 and was seen by over 44 million people. 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the film version, which continues to be the most successful movie musical in history. In the words of Ted Chapin, President of Rodgers & Hammerstein, “I waited for a moment when we could rediscover THE SOUND OF MUSIC as it was originally created. Because of the enormous success of the film, few were aware that it started life as a hit Broadway show—and a very big hit at that! The artists behind this production embraced what the authors wrote, looked at it all through modern eyes and, in so doing, found […]

The SteelDrivers at Jefferson Theatre Award winning bluegrass band The SteelDrivers will perform at the Jefferson Theatre, Thursday, March 28, 2019. The SteelDrivers’ brand of bluegrass – intense, dark, poetic, and inescapably human – is a refreshing reminder of the timeless power of stringband music, and is captured perfectly on The SteelDrivers. Produced by Nashville ace Luke Wooten, The SteelDrivers was recorded mostly live on the studio floor, vocals and all. Its songs grapple with classic themes of regret, love, and redemption, from the escalating prison lament of “Midnight Train to Memphis” to the chilling murderer’s plea encapsulated in “If It Hadn’t Been for Love.” “East Kentucky Home” is a timeless traditional bluegrass lament, with its strains of homesickness, loss, and abandonment, but ingeniously reinvented with off-kilter rhythmic accents and a decidedly contemporary chord progression.

The Symphony of SETX – French Pairings at Julie Rogers Theatre Overview: Our season concludes with a concert of pairings by French composers. Pairings focus on two subjects: Samson and Delilah, Daphnis and Chloe, and the artistic pairing of orchestra and chorus, represented by the Faure Requiem. The Bacchanal, perhaps the most often played section of Saint Saen’s opera, Samson and Delilah begins with a sensuous dance that draws Samson into Delilah’s arms, only to be tricked as she cuts his hair. The balance of the piece is quite fiery in that he calls upon the gods to restore his powers. One of the greatest scores of ballet writing in the twentieth century is Ravel’s Daphnis and Chloe. Chloe, in the first two scenes of this ballet, is abducted by a group of pirates. Her rescue by Pan, a god, is represented by a quartet of flutes in a lyrical picturesque motif and in which the musical climax builds up to Daphnis discovering her, then falls into his arms. An excellent demonstration of Ravel’s masterful orchestration technique, it describes such full splendor, especially as he utilizes a chanting choir to augment the orchestral colors. Faure’s requiem is a typical requiem […] Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Finding Neverland at Lutcher Theater The winner of Broadway.com’s Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, this breathtaking smash “captures the kid-at-heart,” says TIME Magazine. Vogue cheers, “It’s a must-see you’ll remember for years to come!” Directed by visionary Tony®-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award® winning film, FINDING NEVERLAND tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event. FINDING NEVERLAND is “far and away the best musical of the year!” (NPR). “Enchanting! The kind of magical experience that transforms adults back into children, and turns kids on to a lifetime of theatergoing.” David Gordon, Theatermania.
