Now Playing Onstage in Tempe - Week of 5/04/2014 AN EVENING WITH JESSE COOK
Chandler Center for the Arts
5/9-5/9/2014
Jesse Cook is a Canadian guitarist, composer, and producer. Widely considered one of the most influential figures in "nuevo flamenco" music, he incorporates elements of flamenco rumba, jazz & many forms of world music into his work. For the 47-year-old Toronto resident, who was born in Paris to John Cook, a film director and his wife Heather, a former CBC television producer, this record is much different from the rumba flamenco for which he is best known. Indeed, he has been a leading proponent of the genre since bursting onto the world music scene with 1995's Tempest. Among his many accolades, in 2008, he won the silver medal in Acoustic Guitar magazine's prestigious Players' Choice Awards behind the legendary Paco De Lucia.

There love may be doomed, however, by fears and ignorance of people who cannot understand their love. Bravura performance, haunting score, and the artful, magical craft of puppetry will combine to make DARK OF THE MOON a classic tale, powerfully told.

Now Playing Onstage in Tempe - Week of 5/04/2014 THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY
Tempe Performing Arts Center
4/25-5/17/2014
A kick-ass comedy. For real. Finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY is a drop-kicking, body-slamming, balls-out theatrical happening set in the larger-than-life world of professional wrestling. Macedonio "Mace" Guerra plays the fall-guy for mega-successful "THE" Wrestling League, losing again and again to the impossibly charismatic champ Chad Deity. When Mace discovers a young Indian-American Brooklyn kid whose charisma rivals that of Chad's, Mace decides to get him a job in the company. Only problem is, the boss has a very specific plan for the duo: put them onscreen as terrorists. "The delicious crackle and pop of a galloping, honest-to-God, all-American satire." - NY Times
