Presented by The Civic Center Foundation
Wednesday, March 9 - 8pm

Lyle Lovett is a singer, composer and actor. Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of Americana, swing, jazz, folk gospel and blues in convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Whether touring as a "Duo' or with his 'Acoustic Group' or 'The Large Band', Lovett's live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend's deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most fascinating musicians in popular music. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music's most vibrant and iconic performers. His oeuvre, rich and eclectic, is one of the most beloved of any living artist working today. 

"The road goes on forever..." It's not always easy to sum up a career- let alone a life's ambition, so succinctly, but those five words from Robert Earl Keen's calling-card anthem just about does it. Some people take up a life of playing music with the goal of someday reaching a destination of fame and fortune; but from the get-go, Keen just wanted to write and sing his own songs, and to keep writing and singing them for as long as possible. Now still no end in sight to the road ahead - Keen remains as committed to and inspired by his muse as ever. 

The March 9, 2016 engagement is part of the Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen acoustic concert tour spanning North America.

Presented by Peachez, Inc.
Sunday, March 13, 2016 - 3pm & 7:30pm

Madea is at it again in Tyler Perry's most outrageously funny stage play ever. In trouble with the local authorities, Mabel Simmons, notoriously known as Madea, is on the run from the law. With no place to turn, she volunteers to move in with her friend Bam who is recovering from hip replacement surgery. Bam is so grateful that her faithful friend Mabel is putting her life on hold in order to nurse Bam back to health. Unknown to Bam however, Madea is only using the concerned friend gag as a way to hide out from the police. But as they say... all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. 

Madea's presence at Bam's house is just what the doctor ordered. Home improvement, and it is only the kind of family makeover that Madea could deliver. 

Starring Tyler Perry as Madea, and Cassi Davis as Aunt Bam, "Madea On The Run" delivers a couple hours of pure joy and laughter. With brand new music written by Tyler Perry, the show delivers a finger snapping and inspirational evening of theater. Madea's life lessons on friendship, marriage, personal reflection, and overcoming, leave audiences with some great food for the soul. Don't miss Tyler Perry's Madea On The Run.

Presented by JR Adventures
Tuesday, May 3, 2016 - 8pm

“They're calling him the future of blues, but they're wrong - Joe Bonamassa is the present; so fresh and of his time that he almost defines it." - Classic Rock Magazine

“Bonamassa is the Barometer of just how far a Blues Rock Artist can go.” - Get Ready To Rock

Hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, Joe Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream.

This one-night-only engagement is in support of Bonamassa’s two most recent projects: live CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray Set Live At Radio City Music Hall, recorded and filmed at New York’s most iconic and hallowed stage, and his first all original studio album, last year’s highly acclaimed Different Shades Of Blue which debuted at #8 on Billboard’s Top 200 and was Joe’s highest charting album, first top 10, and biggest sales week in his career.

 

Backed by a stellar band of legendary musicians including Anton Fig (drums), Michael Rhodes (bass), Reese Wynans (piano, Hammond organ), Lee Thornburg (trumpet, horn arrangements), Paulie Cerra (saxophone), and background singers to bring a whole new life to the show which will feature new songs alongside career-spanning favorites.

 

As Joe Bonamassa enters his 26th year as a professional musician, he continues to blaze a remarkably versatile artistic trail, and amass an authentic, innovative and soulful body of work. Bonamassa's career began onstage opening for B.B. King in 1989, when he was only 12 years old. Today, he is hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, and is an ever-evolving singer-songwriter who has released 17 solo albums in the last 15 years, all on his own label, J&R Adventures. He founded and oversees the non-profit Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation to promote the heritage of the blues to the next generation, fund music scholarships, and supplement the loss of music education in public schools. In 2013, Bonamassa earned his first GRAMMY ® nomination for Best Blues Album and in 2015 his fourteenth #1 Billboard Blues Album (more than any other artist) with the release of Muddy Wolf At Red Rocks. 2014’s new studio album Different Shades Of Blue debuted at #8 on Billboard's Top 200 and was his highest charting album, first top 10, and biggest sales week ever. In January 2016, he will complete another huge accomplishment when he headlines two shows at New York City's legendary Carnegie Hall with an All-Acoustic Set.

America's Band, The Beach Boys, featuring Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, will make a stop in Oklahoma City as part of their Summer Tour Kick Off to help raise money for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma "Food for Kids" program. All net proceeds raised from this show will be donated to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. Guest staring, with The Beach Boys, will be Surf Rock Icon Dean Torrence of "Jan and Dean" fame. 

The Beach Boys signed with Capitol Records in July 1962 and released their first album, Surfin' Safari, that same year. The album spent 37 weeks on the Billboard chart, launching the young group known for its shimmering vocal harmonies and relaxed California style into international stardom. The Wilson/Love collaboration resulted in many huge international chart hits, and under Brian Wilson's musical leadership, the band' initial surf-rock focus was soon broadened to include many other themes, helping make The Beach Boys America's preeminent band of the 1960s.

Impressively, The Beach Boys continue to hold Billboard / Nielsen SoundScan's record as the top-selling American band for albums and singles, and they are also the American group with the most Billboard Top 40 chart hits (36). 'Sounds of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys' has achieved triple-Platinum sales status and 'The SMiLE Sessions,' released to worldwide critical acclaim in November, has been heralded as 2011's #1 Reissue of the Year by Rolling Stone magazine. 

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and recipients of The Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, The Beach Boys are a beloved American institution that remains iconic around the world.

"Hair meets Shakespeare in one explosive Rock Musical!"
Winner of the 1972 Tony for "Best New Musical" (yes, it beat Grease) this rock musical, with book by John Guare and Mel Shapiro, lyrics by Guare and music by Galt MacDermot, is based on the Shakespeare comedy of the same name. Composter Galt MacDermot most notably wrote the music for the legendary musical, Hair. With Two Gents... he offers a rock musical with the same liveliness and soul. The plot follows Shakespeare's original story: It centers on lifelong friends Proteus and Valentine as they leave their rural hometown Verona to experience life in urban Milan. Capturing the unmistakable feelings of the 20th centure post-Woodstock era, playwrights Guare and Shapiro retain Shakespeare's comedy and spirit but re-imagine the tale in a time of profound transition, with multicultural exuberance and charm. An award-winning example of a classical work by Shakespeare re-imagined in exactly what Reduxion Theatre does best!

Wednesday, June 22, 2016 - 8pm

Gordon Lightfoot was born on November 17, 1938 in Orillia, Ontario, Canada. His parents recognized and encouraged his interest in music; his first appearance at Massey Hall in Toronto, now a revered standard in his tour schedule, was just before he turned 13, as the winner of a competition for boys with unchanged voices.

After a background in barbershop quartets, and as a member of a duo, Lightfoot struck out on his own in the early 60s. He had written perhaps 75 songs, when he was caught up in the country music scene and folk revival of the time; Bob Dylan's music and a song by Merle Travis, Dark As A Dungeon, combined with his sensitivity, inventiveness and beautiful voice, resulted in his unique songwriting and singing style. In less than two years, between late '61 and sometime in 1963, his sound and his life changed forever.
