Garrison Keillor put it best when he said: "I want to hear them singing the rest of my life." He was referring to Robin and Linda Williams, the husband-and-wife folk duo from Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. It's hard to know what's more evocative -- their charged lyrics or their brilliant harmonies, polished to perfection after decades of performance. Regardless of the precise nature of their magic, the couple has enchanted audiences everywhere they go, including appearances on A Prairie Home Companion, performances at The Grand Ole Opry and tours with the likes of Mary Chapin Carpenter and Emmylou Harris. Now they come to the Carpenter Performing Arts Center for a distinctive concert of their very best folk, bluegrass and country music. Learn More

A rare opportunity to see a tremendous show that is performed only infrequently (this was the West Coast premiere!), with an accomplished cast. The fact that it was free was an added bonus - I would have paid big money to see this one!

Music by Stephen Flaherty, Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens </p> <p>Musical Theatre West is delighted to present Musical Theatre Guild's production, offering Los Angeles its first look at Ahrens & Flaherty's recent gem about the journey of self-discovery and acceptance. Based on the Albert Finny film, this musical version premiered at Lincoln Center in 2002. It tells the heartwarming story of Alfie, a Dublin bus conductor and director of the local community theatre. Alfie's passengers are also his performers and, through his eyes, come to experience the power that theatre has to transform their lives. </p>
