Now Playing Onstage in Tucson - Week of 2/16/2014 QUARTET FOR THE END OF TIME: DAVID KRAKAUER, MATT HAIMOVITZ & FRIENDS
UA Crowder Hall
2/17-2/17/2014
This is how musicologist Alex Ross introduces Messiaen's "Quartet for the End of Time," written while the composer was imprisoned in an internment camp. Premiered with the camp's German officers sitting in the first row, the quartet's unusual instrumentation resulted from the available musicians among Messiaen's fellow prisoners. Rarely heard in live performance, this stunning work will be performed by some of chamber music's most respected artists.

Now Playing Onstage in Tucson - Week of 2/16/2014 PAULA POUNDSTONE
The Rialto Theatre
2/22-2/22/2014
Appearing on stage with a stool, a microphone, and a can of Diet Pepsi, Paula Poundstone is famous for her razor-sharp wit and spontaneity. The Boston Globe said, "Poundstone improvises with a crowd like a Jazz musician…swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net." Paula is so quick and unassuming that audience members at her live shows often leave complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter and debating whether the random people she talked to were "plants". Paula's off-kilter sensibility and impeccable timing made her a perfect fit for NPR's "oddly informative", weekly news quiz program, "Wait Wait…Don't Tell Me," which she joined as a regular panelist seven years ago. Hosted by Peter Segal, the show is broadcast in 50 states and gives Paula a chance to match wits with some of today's leading pundits - not to mention interact with some of the people at the forefront of our nation's eyes, including Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer and White House Press Secretary Tony Snow. The show tapes weekly before a live audience at the Chase Auditorium in Chicago, or on location.
