16 | An Evening with Branford Marsalis

This is a rare opportunity for an upclose- and-personal evening with one of the century’s most acclaimed musicians. Branford Marsalis and his jazz quartet bring more than 30 years of experience to the stage and have long been recognized as the standard to which other ensembles of its kind are measured. Some might gauge Branford Marsalis’s success by his numerous awards, including three Grammys and (together with his father and brothers) his citation as a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts. To Branford, however, these are only way stations along what continues to be an everchanging journey in the world of music.

23 | Love Letters

From the brilliant mind of award-winning playwright A.R. Gurney, Love Letters is a tribute to what makes a life: Love. Legendary actors Meredith Baxter and Michael Gross, who co-starred in the hit television series Family Ties for seven seasons, take to the stage to portray Melissa and Andy, childhood friends who exchange letters through the years — physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.
