Harry Connick Jr, Bill Maher, Broadway Master Classes, And More Announced at Phillips Center

Mean Girls

Show Dates: February 25 - March 1, 2020

Show Times Vary

Venue: Walt Disney Theater

Tickets: Start at $54.50. Group tickets available.

Presented by: Dr. Phillips Center and FAIRWINDS Broadway in Orlando

Direct from Broadway, Mean Girls is the hilarious hit musical show from an award-winning creative team, including book writer Tina Fey (30 Rock), composer Jeff Richmond (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and director Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon).

Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. Soon, this naïve newbie falls prey to a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady devises a plan to end Regina's reign, she learns the hard way that you can't cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.

New York Magazine cheers, "Mean Girls delivers with immense energy, a wicked sense of humor and joyful inside-jokery." USA Today says, "We'll let you in on a little secret, because we're such good friends: get your tickets now!"

PechaKucha Night Orlando v28

Show Date: Saturday, March 14, 2020

Show Time: 6 & 9 p.m.

Venue: Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater

Description: PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo, as a chance for creative people to meet, network, and share their work. Taking its name from the Japanese term for "chitchat," PechaKucha rests on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes the presentations concise and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. Speakers present on any subject, from the personal to the public. Writer and coach Eddie Selover brought PechaKucha Night to Orlando in 2010, and this non-profit community event has grown to become the city's most popular public speaking forum. It's an opportunity to listen, learn, engage, and "unwrap the brilliance of Orlando"!

Speakers are as follows:

  • Ron Ben-Zeev - Founder/President, World Housing Solution Inc.
  • Daniel Britt - Pegasus Professor, University of Central Florida
  • Jeffrey George - Advisor, BARR Financial Services
  • John & Angelique Luna - Podcasters, Sex Positive Me
  • Daniel Malechuk - CEO Kalera
  • Nikki Namdar - Founder, Orlando Vegans
  • Shawn Seipler - CEO/Founder, Clean the World
  • Julie Wilder - Co-Owner, Spiral Circle
  • David Yarde - Brand Strategy Advisor, Sevenality

Bill Maher

Show Date: Saturday, April 25, 2020

Show Time: 8 p.m.

Venue: Walt Disney Theater

Tickets: Start at $45

Presented by: Dr. Phillips Center in association with AEG Presents

For more than twenty years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on "Politically Incorrect" (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last fourteen years on HBO's "Real Time," Maher's combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 41 Emmy nominations. Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for the HBO series, "VICE." In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher's uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, "Religulous," directed by Larry Charles ("Borat"). The documentary has gone on to become the 8th Highest Grossing Documentary ever.

In addition to his television program - which has featured such visitors as President Barack Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kerry Washington, Michael Steele, Howard Dean, Michael Moore, Eva Longoria, Drew Barrymore, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Gen. Wesley Clark, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Costner, Gary Hart and Pat Buchanan.- Maher has written five bestsellers: "True Story," "Does Anybody Have a Problem with That? Politically Incorrect's Greatest Hits," "When You Ride Alone, You Ride with Bin Laden," "New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer," and most recently, "The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody But Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass."

Maher started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979, and still performs at least fifty dates a year in Las Vegas and in sold out theaters all across the country. Four of his ten stand-up specials for HBO - 2014's "Bill Maher: Live from DC," 2007's "The Decider," 2005's "I'm Swiss," as well as the hilarious, "Bill Maher ... But I'm Not Wrong," - have been nominated for Emmy awards.
