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.
Book, Music & Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Based on a poem by Joseph Moncure March
Not to be confused with the Broadway show of the same name, Andrew Lippa’s The Wild Party was developed at the Manhattan Theatre Club, winning the 2000 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical and Drama Desk Award for Best Music. Set in the Roaring 20s, it tells the story of one wild evening in the New York apartment shared by Queenie and Burrs, a vaudeville dancer and her lover, as they set out to make each other jealous. Lippa’s score captures the sound of a bygone era and drives the tale of passions out of control.
The Musical Theatre Guild presents this encore performance of their hit concert staging of the show for one night only.
The performance contains adult context and is not suitable for children under 16.
