It begins when you walk through the doors of the storied Radio City Music Hall. Perhaps you pause for a moment and stand to admire the art deco lobby before making your way to your seat. After a hush, the curtain slowly rises, the music swells, and Rockettes appear. In perfect unison they dance across the stage, mesmerizing in their precision. And just like that, you're transported to another place, where reindeer prance and dash through the snow, where rag dolls spring to life and wooden soldiers march in a fantastic parade. For a time, the hustle and bustle of the world outside disappear and you are reminded of the true meaning and spirit of the holiday season.

This musical journey takes audiences back in time — specifically, to when "soul" emerged as a style of music. Berry Gordy's Motown label and his studio band the Funk Brothers helped popularize soul music, as did Stax Records' Booker T. & the MG's. Before long, James Brown became the "Godfather of Soul" and Aretha Franklin its queen.
Now vocalists Prentiss McNeil (of the Drifters) and Bruce Wayne (of the Midnight Movers, Wilson Pickett's backing band) lead this classic soul revue. Their energy is unmatched; their showmanship, breathtaking. A Decade of Soul is a passion-driven tribute; the passion may even drive audience members out of their seats and onto their feet.

Music and libretto by Gary S. Fagin Includes world premiere screening of documentary film Guns by Nick Davis
Tackling the impact of gun violence in the United States, The Struggle to Forgive: Confronting Gun Violence in America is a new musical dramatic work that hauntingly gives voice to those involved in the gun debate — victims and their families, law enforcement and perpetrators, politicians and gun enthusiasts.
The libretto is based on audio, video, and written accounts of those living with the aftermath of gun violence or the loss of a loved one, as well as news reports of mass shootings, recordings of 911 calls, and the gun control debates.
Guns tells the interconnected stories of individuals whose lives have been dramatically affected by guns. Complex and powerful, the film will tell stories that are not as simple as they first appear — stories full of richness, irony, and emotional truth — and in so doing, tells the sweeping story of an Issue that defines our time.

Bruce Springsteen himself on his solo show: "I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as intimate as possible. I chose Broadway for this project because it has the beautiful old theaters, which seemed like the right setting for what I have in mind. In fact, with one or two exceptions, the 960 seats of the Walter Kerr Theatre is probably the smallest venue I've played in the last 40 years. My show is just me, the guitar, the piano, and the words and music. Some of the show is spoken; some of it is sung. It loosely follows the arc of my life and my work. All of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal to provide an entertaining evening and to communicate something of value."
