A brilliant success on Broadway, And Miss Reardon Drinks a Little is a wildly funny but deeply touching story infused with noted playwright Paul Zindel's biting humor. The black comedy delves into the tortured relationships of three sisters who have reached their breaking point. Abandoned by their father in their youth, the sisters have now lost their mother and are also dealing with problems of their own. Anna's gone mad, Catherine's constantly drunk and Ceil ran off with her sister's boyfriend. When the three reunite over dinner, resentments which have simmered for years finally boil over. The intrusion of some colorful, but obnoxious neighbors (with the worst possible timing) sets the action on a crash course towards a shattering conclusion. Learn More

We bought these tickets at the last minute and the price was too good to pass up. We just moved here and the venue was amazing! On top of that our seats were great. Omar and his crew were more than we expected. His musical background is so diverse and so were his musicians. We loved every minute of this show. I only found it odd that Omar placed his piano in way that his back was facing the audience. It really didn't matter cause he still engaged the audience. After the show, he met with his fans and signed CDs. If you find a concert or performance in Tempe Center for the Arts, you must go cause the venue is easy to get to and it's quite beautiful. If Omar Sosa is in your area, you must really see him. You will be happy with his performance.
Omar Sosa's latest studio album, Eggun: The Afri-Lectric Experience, was released worldwide in February 2013. Eggun, in the West African spiritual practice of Ifa and its various expressions throughout the African Diaspora, are the spirits of those who have gone before us, both in our personal families and those who serve as our spiritual guides.
Following the success of the Kind Of Blue commission, Omar began to include the new arrangements into the repertoire of his regular touring ensemble, resulting in the creation of the The Afri-Lectric Experience. The featured horn players are Joo Kraus on trumpet (from Germany), Leandro Saint-Hill on saxophones and flute (from Cuba), and Peter Apfelbaum on saxophones and percussion (from U.S.A.). Omar's longtime rhythm section of Marque Gilmore on drums (from U.S.A.) and Childo Tomas on electric bass (from Mozambique) create the foundation.
