One of the best known saxophonists in the world, David Sanborn blends jazz, pop, rock and R&B into a smooth-as-silk sound that no other sax player has quite managed to copy. The career of this multiple Grammy winner was launched in 1975 by his (aptly-titled) debut album, Taking Off, and it hasn't come down since, spanning more than two dozen other albums. Established as both a soloist and a collaborator with the likes of Bowie, the Stones and Clapton, Sanborn now brings his "sweet-tart alto sound" (The New York Times) to Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beachfor an impassioned performance.

This was a great show. I saw it on Broadway a few years ago MTW's production was just as good if not better! The ensemble numbers were outstanding and all of the soloists were incredible. I liked the show so much I went back to see it for a 2nd time
Musical Theatre West is delighted to present the first U.S. regional production of the Joe DiPietro hit Broadway musical _All Shook Up _at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beach.
_All Shook Up, _loosely based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, tells the all-new story of a square little town in the middle of a square state in the middle of a square decade where a lonely young girl dreams of hitting the open road. Into her life rides a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and kick-starts a hip-swivelin’, lip-curlin’ musical fantasy that will have you jumping out of your blue suede shoes. All Shook Up contains 25 of Elvis Presley’s greatest hits, including “All Shook Up”, “Jailhouse Rock”, “Blue Suede Shoes” and “Love Me Tender”. Combining all-time favorite Elvis hits with a whole new story, _All Shook Up _is surefire fun for rock ‘n’ roll rebels of all ages!
