NEXT TO NORMAL
Mesa Arts Center, Nesbitt/Elliott Playhouse
1/25-2/3/2013
Next to Normal is an unrelentingly intense, brutally honest – and often, darkly funny – story about a bipolar woman and the family that grapples with her illness, all set to a hard driving rock and roll score that explodes with raw, searing emotion. Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rolling Stone called it "the best new musical of the season – by a mile." Next to Normal explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness.

LOLLAPALOOZA
Mesa Arts Center, Ikeda Theater
2/3-2/3/2013
What's excellent, outstanding, striking, exceptional and impressive? It's the definition of a Lollapalooza and the Salt River Brass! The afternoon opens with Hector Berlioz' excellent overture Judges of the Secret Court and George Gershwin's outstanding American in Paris. Next, we strike with Amilcare Ponchielli's exceptional Dance of the Hours and continue to impress with the music from Star Wars by John Williams. Salt River Brass is joined by guest artist Ryan Anthony, the Principal Trumpet of the Dallas Symphony and former member of the Canadian Brass. The Washington Post raves, "Ryan plays with a golden, evocative tone!" Ryan will perform hits that showcase his unique blend of artistry and showmanship. To top off this afternoon of fabulous music, let Salt River Brass be your Super Bowl pre-game show as we play a sports tribute that'll get you ready to cheer for your favorite team. There's a lot for your pleasure on this Lollapalooza!
