An Evening with Sonny Rollins @ The Rialto

Vibrantly expressive and Herculean in his intensity, legendary saxophonist Sonny Rollins is one the giants of modern jazz. At an age when most musicians would be content to tread water, Rollins enters his sixth decade as a professional musician in resplendent form. When he picks up the tenor saxophone, the world listens. For nearly half a century, he has played music with the majesty of a Greek god. The favorite saxophonist of John Coltrane and many others, today Rollins remains one of the few surviving icons from a golden era of jazz, probably never to be equaled.

The Producers @ Fox Theatre

Based on Mr. Brooks' Academy Award-winning 1968 film of the same name, THE PRODUCERS, the new MEL BROOKS musical is the story of down-on-his-luck theatrical producer Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom , a mousy accountant. Together they hatch the ultimate scam: raise more money than you need for a sure-fire Broadway flop and pocket the difference. Their "sure-fire" theatrical fiasco? . . . None other than the musical Springtime for Hitler. THE PRODUCERS, the new MEL BROOKS musical, has set a record, receiving 12 American Theatre Wing Tony Awards®, more than any other production in the history of the awards. THE PRODUCERS, the new MEL BROOKS musical surpassed the record of 10 Tonys set by Hello, Dolly! in 1964. Ticket Prices: $20.00 - $62.00
