One of the greatest musicals in theater history, Cole Porter’s first-class musical comedy is sailing to Rochester. Based on Roundabout Theatre Company’s production, The New York Times hails it a “MUSICAL-COMEDY JOY” and USA TODAY calls it “GLORIOUS and EXUBERANT!” When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention get tossed out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love…proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this timeless classic are some of musical theatre’s most memorable standards, including “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “You’re the Top,” and of course, “Anything Goes.” Don’t miss what the AP exclaims as, “So DELIGHTFUL, So DELICIOUS, So DE-LOVELY!” http://www.ticketmaster.com/venueartist/164/1732681

What began as a way to reach the youth in a nearby juvenile detention center, through hip-hop, eventually became chart topping success for Lecrae as a critically acclaimed rapper, with over 1.8 million collective album sales. In the past two years, Lecrae has released 3 genre-redefining projects. He dropped his first mixtape in 2012, Church Clothes, hosted by Don Canon, which went double platinum on Datpiff, garnering over 500,000 downloads and debuting #10 on iTunes as an EP.

Following that, in probably what was a major upset in Gospel music, Lecrae made history as the first hip-hop artist to win a GRAMMY® award in the Best Gospel Album category for his sixth studio album Gravity. Gravity debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Rap Charts, and #1 Independent with over 73K units sold during its first week. The album featured key production from GRAMMY® award winning producers DJ Khalil and Heat Academy. He also celebrated video premieres of his singles "Mayday," "Fakin'," and “Confessions” on BET and MTV. Along with the biggest win of his career, Lecrae was also nominated for a Billboard Award, BET Award and Soul Train Award, and won a Dove Award. Lecrae closed out an incredible 2013 on several major tours, including Rock the Bells, and put out his second mixtape, Church Clothes 2, which has sold over 40K units after being downloaded over 150,000 times.

Opening Reception and Exhibit: Pure Pigment

May 8th, 2015

Opening Reception and Exhibit: Pure Pigment Coloring with chalk is child’s play, “sidewalk art”. But grown-ups call their chalks “pastels”, and they paint pictures with PURE PIGMENT. While other media use water or oils to carry the color to the painting, pastels lay down pure pigment, and therefore can be exceptionally brilliant.

Pure Pigment is an exhibit featuring the paintings of Mark Verna, a popular Webster painter, many of them in pastel. His rendition of Grimes Glen is so inviting, one could hear the water running over the rocks and feel the sun’s rays. Also on display will be pastels by Wendy Harris of Syracuse. Last summer Wendy was honored to be an artist in residence at the Art Center’s Sunny Point on Keuka. Her week of wandering and painting depicts the beauty and peace of the Keuka area. Soapstone carver, Sandy Cline, of Ontario, Canada, will fill out the featured area of the gallery with his bears and loons and birds and wolves, polished to a shine. His love of the natural world is turned, by his hands, into deep green carvings, reminiscent of jade.

The opening reception for PURE PIGMENT will be Friday, May 8, from 5:00-7:00 PM. Wine will be provided and music by Barbara Anderson at the piano. Please bring your friends and enjoy the art, hors d’oeuvres, punch or wine, and the energy of artists sharing their passion in PURE PIGMENT. The Arts Center of Yates County is located at 127 Main Street, Penn Yan, NY, 14527. Check the website, www.artscenteryatescounty.org or email artscenter@acyc.org for more information.

Brian Regan Live Comedy Tour

May 9th, 2015

LIVE NATION PRESENTS BRIAN REGAN LIVE COMEDY TOUR MAY 9, 2015 @ 8:00PM Tickets: On Sale Now Price: $36.50 Critics and peers agree: Brian Regan has distinguished himself as one of the premier comedians in the country. The perfect balance of sophisticated writing and physicality, Brian fills theaters nationwide with fervent fans that span generations. On November 25, 2011, Brian’s highly anticipated second album, All By Myself, was released on CD available only through his website. The live concert recording was originally released as a digital download in December 2010 only available through his website. Releasing two critically acclaimed hour Comedy Central specials and DVD’s in as many years - 2008’s The Epitome of Hyperbole, and 2007’s Brian Regan Standing Up - Brian has set a standard of excellence that others continually try to follow. The Epitome of Hyperbole has also been seen on CMT. Brian’s non-stop theater tour has visited more than 80 cities each year since 2005 and continues through 2012. It is the quality of his material, relatable to a wide audience and revered by his peers, which continues to grow Brian’s fan base. In January of 2012 Brian broke the record for the most consecutive shows by a comedian at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City with ten sold-out shows selling more than 26,000 tickets. In March of 2010, Brian performed five sold-out shows at Abravanel Hall breaking the previous record of four shows set by Jerry Seinfeld in 2005. With his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1995, Brian solidified his place on the show and this year he made his 25th appearance, the most of any comedian on the CBS show. A dorm room favorite, Brian’s 1997 CD, Brian Regan Live, has sold over 150,000 copies and consistently charts in iTunes Top Ten Comedy Albums. Brian’s 2000 Comedy Central Presents special continues to be a top viewer choice and Brian’s independently released 2004 DVD, I Walked on the Moon, is available at www.BrianRegan.com.
