The Capitol Steps, Wanda Sykes, Mannheim Steamroller, Kenny Rogers and More Join The Van Wezel's 2014-15 Lineup
Seven spectacular shows just added to the upcoming 2014-15 season at the Van Wezel! Tickets go on sale Friday, July 25 at 10am at the Box Office, online, and by phone.
Beginning November's stellar performance lineup on November 1, are The Capitol Steps. The Capitol Steps have been a Washington, DC institution for over thirty years, providing a unique blend of musical and political comedy to our Nation's Capital and more. The performance consists of tasteful lampooning guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing.
The comedy keeps coming on November 16, when the smart-witted, side-splitting, and Emmy Award Winning, Wanda Sykes takes the stage. Sykes has been called "one of the funniest standup comics" by her peers and ranks among Entertainment Weekly's 25 Funniest People in America. Offering a change in pace on November 18, the cult-classic turned Broadway hit, Evil Dead: The Musical splatters onto the stage. The musical comedy sensation takes all the elements of the classic horror films, "Evil Dead," "Evil Dead 2" and "Army of Darkness," and combines them to make one of the most 'freaking awesome' theatrical experiences of all time.
On a more traditional note November 19 brings Mannheim Steamroller Christmas by Chip Davis, this year marks the 30th anniversary of the group's annual tour. Grammy Award winner Chip Davis has created a show that features the beloved Christmas music of Mannheim Steamroller along with dazzling multimedia effects performed in an intimate setting. Carrying on the holiday theme on November 28, Dave Koz and Friends Christmas Tour 2014 features special guests, R & B star, Jonathan Butler, Grammy winner Christopher Cross, and Soul Train winner, Maysa. Multi-GRAMMY nominee and saxophonist extraordinaire Dave Koz has become synonymous with the season making this performance a holiday tradition that you won't want to miss.
