In an attempt to recreate the stage show of one of the greatest rock bands of all time, a few musicians decided to form a Led Zeppelin cover group in 2006 and since then, the band has become one of the premier touring cover bands today. With accomplished musicians who are capable of recreating Jimmy Page's lively guitar playing, Robert Plant's harrowing singing, John Paul Jones's tasteful bass playing and John Bonham's thunderous drumming, Get the Led Out is a sure fire fix for anyone who needs a quick hit of Led Zeppelin action.

Lockwood De Forest (1850-1932) was an artist who was a well-traveled man and son of a wealthy family. His famous painting The Wreck has been exhibited many times, three times alone in 1880 - at The Century Association, the National Academy of Design in New York City and at the Louisville Industrial Exhibition in Kentucky. The Wreck thematizes life and death in a desert setting. This circle of life is timeless and the skill with which De Forest used his brush and commitment of colors makes the painting seem alive.

As Gordy discovers new talents like Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson and The Supremes, he also finds himself entangled in a drama-fueled romance with Diana Ross. The show stretches across decades as it tells the true story of Gordy - and Motowns - rise to fame. Featuring an ensemble cast of more than 40 actors, Motown: The Musical is an explosive new musical featuring almost 60 of the most beloved hits in the Motown music catalogue.

Pippin | APRIL 21 26, 2015 Diane Paulus new, circus-inspired production of Pippin features an acrobatic troupe of performers, led by the charismatic Leading Player. The ensemble cast tells the story of Pippin, a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his life. To prove his loyalty to his distracted father, King Charles, Pippin goes to war. But when the Leading Player convinces the prince to fight tyranny, Pippin kills Charles and takes over the throne. Realizing his mistake, Pippin begs the Leading Player to bring his father back to life, and she obliges. The prince falls in love with Catherine, a widow with a young son, and (much to the Leading Players chagrin), Pippin struggles to decide whether he should settle down and pursue a peaceful life or continue to make magic with the dazzling troupe of performers. From the moment the Leading Player beckons the audience into the big top, the first-ever Broadway revival of Pippin is a sensational spectacle. As the story unfolds, acrobats fly through the air, contort themselves into impressive positions and perform classic circus tricks. Even the leading actors get in on the action, throwing swords, riding unicycles, hula hooping, and even flying on the trapeze. Pippin is a two-and-a-half-hour, high-energy extravaganza that makes for a positively electrifying night at the theater.

If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity. Disneys Beauty and the Beast has become an international sensation that has played to over 35 million people worldwide in 13 countries.
