Mandy Patinkin In Concert: Being Alive - Thursday, May 18, 2023 at 8:00pm. Tickets range from $65-$165. Mandy Patinkin in Concert: Being Alive presents the acclaimed actor in his most electrifying role: concert performer. “Mandy Patinkin is in the business of showstopping,” raves The New Yorker, and that’s exactly what he does in this powerful, passionate evening of song. Being Alive is a marriage of many of Patinkin’s favorite Broadway and classic American tunes, along with selections from his newest recordings. From Randy Newman to Stephen Sondheim, from Harry Chapin to Rufus Wainwright, Patinkin takes you on a dazzling musical journey you’ll never forget. He’s accompanied by Adam Ben-David, an arranger, music director, conductor, and pianist on Broadway for the past 22 years.
Patinkin made his Broadway debut in 1980 and won a Tony Award for his role as Che in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita. In addition to several Broadway roles, he began his concert career in 1989 at Joseph Papp's Public Theater in New York City. Since then, he has toured his various solo concerts across North America, in London’s West End, through Australia and New Zealand, as well as on Broadway and Off-Broadway. His film and TV credits include Wish I Was Here, The Wind Rises, The Princess Bride, Yentl, Ragtime, “The Good Fight,” “Chicago Hope,” and “Homeland.”
Trace Adkins - Thursday, June 15, 2023 at 8:00pm. Tickets range from $105-$145. In his 25-year career in Country music, Trace Adkins has sold over 11 million albums, charted over 20 singles, earned numerous awards and Grammy nominations, and garnered over 2 billion streams. A Grand Ole Opry member for nearly two decades, the Louisiana native is known for dynamic baritone and fiery, always-memorable live performances, and has expanded his Country career to include film and TV acting. He broke out in 1996 with the debut album, Dreamin’ Out Loud, cracking the Top 5 of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with “Every Light in the House Is On,” and following with the #1 smash, “This Ain’t (No Thinkin’ Thing).” Since then, Adkins has pioneered a mix of classic Country minded traditionalism and adventurous, good-natured showmanship, breaking open new avenues in modern Country through fun-filled hits like “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” and “Hillbilly Bone” (with Blake Shelton).
Trace Adkins celebrated the silver anniversary of his debut album in 2021 with The Way I Wanna Go, doing exactly what he always has – mixing pure-Country reverence with standout collaborations featuring Blake Shelton, Melissa Etheridge, Snoop Dogg, Stevie Wonder on harmonica and more.

O-Town’s story began in 1999 when Making the Band chronicled the group’s rise on MTV. The group’s first two albums included #1 singles, “Liquid Dreams” and “All or Nothing” and the Top 40 hit “We Fit Together.”
Originally formed in 1997, BBMAK (Mark Barry, Christian Burns, and Stephen McNally) are officially “Back Here” after a 15-year hiatus. The multi-platinum-selling English pop group has sold more than three million albums and had hit singles worldwide before disbanding in 2003. They’re best known for their self-penned infectious guitar-driven hits “Back Here”, “Out of My Heart”, and “The Ghost of You and Me.”
Ryan Cabrera is the singer and songwriter behind ubiquitous smashes such as “On the Way Down,” “True” and “Shine On.” He was also featured heavily on MTV’s “Ashlee Simpson Show” and “The Hills”.
LFO burst onto the scene in 1999 with the #1 smash hit "Summer Girls" and followed with another top-five hit in “Girl on TV” and the top-ten hit, “Every Other Time.” Today, lone surviving member Brad Fischetti keeps the name of LFO alive, performing the songs to fans, new and old.
