Two classic rock super-groups team up for The Soundtrack of Summer Tour, featuring former Eagles guitarist Don Felder as an opener. Known for their four consecutive multi-platinum albums featuring huge hits like "Come Sail Away," "Renegade," "Blue Collar Man," "Fooling Yourself" and "Too Much Time on My Hands," Styx also has two Super Bowl appearances and multiple chart-topping tours under their belt, with no end in sight. Foreigner also continues to play to sold-out houses, led by original band member, vocalist and lead guitarist Mick Jones -- who penned the famed power ballad "I Want to Know What Love Is." Their self-titled Foreigner disc spawned monster smashes still heard 'round the world today: "Feels Like the First Time," "Cold as Ice" and "Long, Long Way From Home." They followed that up with Top 30 tunes like "Juke Box Hero," "Urgent," "Head Games," "Say You Will" and more. Learn More

This is the third in a series of plays by this playwright, taking Greek tragedy and making it contemporary and Latino. The production is tight, fierce and engaging. This is a thrilling production which suffers from it's own ambition but succeeds in it's attempt to educate and entertain. Oye!
This is not your mama’s Oedipus … In Luis Alfaro’s thrilling reboot of the daddy of all tragedies, a young Chicano ex-con sets out on a journey to be the king of the South Central LA gangland. Set amid the sizzling rhythms and explosive violence of an inner-city barrio, the gripping story follows his family of ex-cons through the vicious cycle of fate and violence in which they find themselves trapped. Oedipus el Rey is a sexy, modern take on a classic.
