With a title that alludes to an inciting moment in the creative life of one of the biggest icons in music history, Miles Davis and the Blue Flame Incident celebrates the life and work of one of the most innovative jazz musicians of all time. An exploration of Davis' career, this unique performance combines video clips, voiceovers that brings to life sections of his autobiography, still images and, most importantly, incredible live music courtesy of the Metta Quintet. As the musicians perform a variety of songs that demonstrates the range and imagination of the trumpeter, bandleader and cultural provocateur that was Miles Davis, an inspirational story of the man himself is woven with the supporting media in this not-to-be-missed show.

Reviews & Ratings
<p>Irvine Barclay Theatre is delighted to present a heartwarming new musical, Katie Couric’s The Brand New Kid. Adapted from Katie Couric’s popular children’s book, this production is a presentation of The Kennedy Center Theater for Young Audience on Tour and is recommended for ages 4-8.</p> <p>New teachers…new books…new faces! It’s the very first day of second grade, and Lazlo S. Gasky is the new kid in school. He’s your typical seven-year-old boy, but because he doesn’t look or speak quite like the others, the teasing and taunting begin. When Ellie McSnelly realizes how tough Lazlo has it, she risks being ridiculed herself to spend an afternoon with him. After playing soccer, eating strudel, and making new friends, the two teach their classmates a valuable lesson – one that’s not in their schoolbooks – about the need to give others a chance. This uplifting new musical proves that being yourself is the best way to be.</p>
