Winterfest! in Broadway WINTERFEST!
Mesa Arts Center, Piper Repertory Theater
WINTERFEST! --- For The First Time! Southwest Shakespeare Co. Winter Repertory Two of Shakespeare's Best Presented in rotating repertory by a single company of players. HAMLET Without question the most famous play in the English language, Hamlet is a milestone in Shakespeare's dramatic development--a portrait of a man torn between two forces; the need to remain morally pure and the need to take revenge. Join us for an unforgettable theatre event! THE TEMPEST Considered by many to be Shakespeare's swansong and farewell to the theatre, The Tempest combines themes of romance, betrayal, justice, reality and illusion, to create a tale that penetrates to the heart of the theatre itself, and touches on the fundamental nature of man and the artistic imagination.

Mesa Arts Center, Ikeda Theater
George Benson's amazingly elegant orchestra show, "an unforgettable tribute to Nat King Cole" is now in it's fourth year of touring and from the looks of things, this masterpiece will be in demand for a good while. Judging from the overwhelming response worldwide (from Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles to three performances with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center and three performances with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House), Mr Benson, the orchestras and choruses have been thrilling audiences at every turn. And why not? George Benson is not only one of the world's most respected guitarists, but also one of the great vocal stylists of our time. Throw in the lush orchestral arrangements and fathomless beauty of Nat King Cole's music and you have an experience that is truly "unforgettable."

Next to Normal in Broadway NEXT TO NORMAL
Mesa Arts Center, Nesbitt/Elliott Playhouse
Next to Normal is an unrelentingly intense, brutally honest – and often, darkly funny – story about a bipolar woman and the family that grapples with her illness, all set to a hard driving rock and roll score that explodes with raw, searing emotion. Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rolling Stone called it "the best new musical of the season – by a mile." Next to Normal explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness.
