MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The Orpheum Theatre Group has announced the lineup for the 2018-2019 On Stage at the Halloran Centre series. Tickets for all events are on sale now.
The genre-spanning music series begins with Grammy Award-winning country and roots artist Rodney Crowell. Other select highlights include actor Dennis Quaid as lead vocalist for his band Dennis Quaid and the Sharks; three-time Grammy nominated soul singer Bettye LaVette; Music of the Knights, a special celebration of the music of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, Sir Elton John, and Sir Paul McCartney; founding member of The Supremes Mary Wilson; the Grammy-nominated songwriter and pianist Jim Brickman on his Share the Love tour; Prince of Spanish Guitar Benise; and The Orbert Davis Jazz Ensemble. The music series is sponsored for the first time by Evolve Bank & Trust.
The theatre series kicks off in mid-November with a production of Tony Award-winning musical Ain’t Misbehavin followed by the National Players’ production of Arthur Miller’s searing drama The Crucible. The series concludes with New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players’ production of The Pirates of Penzance in March 2019.
In its inaugural season, Kafé Kirk will bring a sophisticated, groovy, jazzy, spiritually uplifting mix of musical excitement to downtown Memphis. On designated first Sundays beginning this October, Kirk Whalum will invite some of his good friends to share an intimate evening of music that will provide an exclusive look in to what exactly makes these artists who they are and what motivates them.
Single tickets and packages are on sale now. Choose five or more shows from the music and theatre series and save $5 off each show (not applicable for Kafé Kirk or select Benise tickets).
