Carlos Nuņez in Broadway CARLOS NÚÑEZ
National Hispanic Cultural Center
2/26-2/26/2014
Carlos Nuñez is one of Galicia's most revered artists, undisputed as the tradition's greatest piper. He is also enormously popular across the rest of Spain and throughout Europe and Latin America. He is already known in Irish music thanks to his early "adoption" by The Chieftains (so close was his musical and personal connection he was dubbed "The Seventh Chieftain"). He played on many of the acclaimed Irish group's CDs including Treasure Island, The Long Black Veil, the Grammy-winning Santiago (inspired by Galician music), and Voice of Ages. Nuñez then launched his own solo career, starting with his 1996 debut, Brotherhood of Stars. With platinum sales in Spain, Brotherhood was a remarkable breakthrough for both Nuñez and Galician music. His newest album, Discover, showcases the range and depth of this groundbreaking instrumentalist, who has taken Galician music to all corners of the world. Proof is in the stunning list of guests that appear on Discover, including the Chieftains, Jackson Browne, Ry Cooder, Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, Sinead O'Connor, Waterboys frontman Mike Scott, Laurie Anderson, Hector Zazou, and many others.

Oklahoma! in Broadway OKLAHOMA!
Albuquerque Academy
2/28-3/8/2014
Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!Music by Rodgers, Richard; Book by Oscar Hammerstein II; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Original Dances by Agnes de Mille; Based on the play `Green Grow the Lilacs` by Lynn Riggs

My Favorite Year in Broadway MY FAVORITE YEAR
The Adobe Theater
2/21-3/14/2014
This musical comedy by the award-winning musical team of Ahrens and Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, Ragtime, Seussical, Once on this Island) is based on the successful movie of the same name. Benjy Stone is a first-year writer on the "King Kaiser Comedy Cavalcade" TV show (it smacks of Your Show of Shows starring Sid Caesar). The guest host for this week is Allan Swann, an over-the hill drunken, swashbuckling movie star. Benjy writes the script for a 3 Musketeers sketch, is ordered to keep Swann sober and under control, accompanies Swann to dinner at his mother's Brooklyn apartment, and ultimately convinces Swann to reconcile with his estranged daughter. (oh - and Benjy gets the show's female assistant as his girlfriend). Much of the comedy results from a behind-the-scenes look at the preparations for the TV show. It features a hilarious script and superb music.
