Academy Award nominee and Tony Award-winner John Lithgow (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Shrek, 3rd Rock from the Sun) takes the title role in Arthur Wing Pinero's uproarious Victorian farce, directed by Olivier Award-winner Timothy Sheader (Crazy for You and Into the Woods, Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, London).
In a similar vein to The National Theatre's smash-hit classic comedies, She Stoops to Conquer and London Assurance, The Magistrate is sure to have audiences doubled up with laughter. When amiable magistrate Posket (John Lithgow) marries Agatha (Olivier Award-winner Nancy Carroll, After the Dance), little does he realise she's dropped five years from her age - and her son's. When her deception looks set to be revealed, it sparks a series of hilarious indignities and outrageous mishaps.
Hailed by critics everywhere for its transcendent and deeply emotional performances, Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenca present flamenco in its purest form - with all the passion and fury.
Formed in 1993 by Artistic Director Martín Santangelo and his wife, Soledad Barrio, Noche Flamenca has developed into one of Spain's most successful flamenco companies. With annual seasons in New York City and Buenos Aires, and return engagements at theatres around the world, the company has a dedicated global audience.
Since its beginning, Noche Flamenca's goal has been to maintain the essence, purity and Integrity of one of the world's most complex and mysterious art forms. All aspects of flamenco -dance, song, and music - are interrelated and given equal weight in Noche Flamenca, creating a true communal spirit within the company - the very heart and soul of flamenco.
Robert and Roland - The Brothers Cazimero - are consummate performers who have made their indelible imprint on the face of contemporary Hawai'ian music. Their musical talent, incredible showmanship and infectious humor have placed them in a league of their own, untouched by any other performer in the history of Hawai'ian music.
The early 1970s were a remarkable time as the Hawa'iian culture and music began an amazing resurgence in Hawai'i. Leading the way down this amazing new path were The Brothers Cazimero, carrying a torch that sparked a new interest in music performed in the Hawai'ian language with a contemporary sound that has never been duplicated.
Brothers Cazimero are remarkable entertainers on stage who achieve a full-bodied sound that emanates from two traditional instruments, the acoustic bass and a twelve-string guitar. Their music has been celebrated around the world and has been licensed for use in film, television and commercial projects, and was featured in the hit movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
