Old Hardcastle, a man of means, looks to marry off his daughter to his old pal's son. But, when two male suitors arrive, trouble-maker Tony Lumpkin plays a practical joke on the city slickers. The Hardcastle household is launched into a dizzying and deliciously preposterous romp of mistaken identities. Misdemeanors, madness and mayhem ensue. One of the stage's great classics and a real audience-pleaser.

After his sold-out performance in 2011, we are thrilled to bring one of the most in-demand musicians in the world back to Mesa Arts Center. Lang Lang appeared in Time Magazine's 2009 list of the 100 Most Influential People in the world. In 2008, over five billion people viewed Lang Lang's performance in Beijing's opening ceremony for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad, where he was seen as a symbol of the youth and the future of China. This status inspired over 40 million Chinese children to learn to play classical piano - a phenomenon coined by The Today Show as "the Lang Lang effect."

When this odd couple hits the open road, every straight-away turns into a hairpin curve. Who knew that Denny's, Motel 6, saxophone music, and prune juice could change a young man's life forever.
