An Evening with Sandi Thom in Broadway AN EVENING WITH SANDI THOM
One Longfellow Square
Sandi Thom is on a musical journey that has taken her from the renowned platinum selling debut album: 'Smile… It Confuses People' to the critically acclaimed blues rock record; 'Merchants and Thieves' featuring a collaboration with her long term boyfriend Joe Bonamassa. Her latest release 'Flesh and Blood', dubbed "Fierce and Honest Songwriting" by The Huffinton Post, drew in the likes of The Black Crowes band and Bobby Keys to work with her. Even the legendary Buffy Sainte-Marie appears on the record on a most stunning duet with Thom entitled 'The Big Ones Get Away'. Over the last six years since Thom arrived on the scene she has sold in excess of one million albums, been nominated for a Brit award, won a Digital Music Award for her innovation as an artist, won Album Of The Year at the Scottish Music Awards and been given an Ivor Novello award for excellence in songwriting. Sandi Thom's star just keeps on rising.

Spencer: Theatre of Illusion in Broadway SPENCER: THEATRE OF ILLUSION
Collins Center for the Arts
Theatre of Illusion is not your run-of--he-mill magic show, and the Spencers are not your typical magicians. The Spencers carry a lot of equipment in their 65 foot customized truck and trailer, but a rabbit and a top hat are not in the inventory. The Spencers' production is a unique fusion of magic and illusion, humor and mystery, and persona and personality. With a background in clinical psychology, Kevin likes to say, "I was going to help people's minds, but now I just mess with them." Theatre of Illusion stands in stark contrast to the traditional magic show. Spencer sees it not as a stage full of tricks used to fool people, but as a way to inspire viewers with a sense of wonder. By blending the theatrical elements of a Broadway-style production with the high energy of a rock concert, these artists take their audience on a journey to the brink of impossibility... and back again. Audience members don't simply watch the show, but are also invited to participate in the magic. Using magic much like a storyteller uses words, Kevin fuses this family-friendly production with a gamut of emotions. And with the skills of a master showman, he creates a world where nothing is impossible and anything can happen.
