Och & Oy! A Considered Cabaret

Saturday, November 4, 7:30 pm, and Sunday, November 5, 7 pm

Alan Cumming (Cabaret, The Good Wife) and Ari Shapiro (NPR’s All Things Considered, Pink Martini) both transport audiences to other worlds through their stories. Now, they’re joining forces in SONG. Witness the exclusive debut of their new evening of tunes and tall tales!

Singer, song writer Haley Reinhart

Wednesday, November 15, 7:30 pm

Haley Reinhart has one of those timeless voices that outlasts eras—one that would have felt as at home in the 1960s as it does in the TikTok age, and one that resounds louder as time goes on. The platinum-selling singer and songwriter is heavily influenced by classic pop and soul acts—including the Beatles, Janis Joplin, Ella Fitzgerald, and Sly and the Family Stone—and she exudes an empowering level of charisma and confidence earned by a quiet, decadelong grind.
