      The Naked Magic Show
    • Friday, May 6, 2016
    • Described as Magic Mike but with real magic in it, this boisterous R-rated magic show strips away the top hats and capes to reveal full frontal illusions. The naked magicians' saucy magic is both baffling and entertaining, while bringing new meaning to the phrase "now you see it." Good magicians don't need sleeves, and great magicians don't wear pants. This show proves all that and more as two hot and hilarious magicians say abracadabra and take magic to a whole new level. Perfect for girls' night, boys' night or naughty night.

      Brian Regan
    • Saturday, May 7, 2016
    • Clean can often mean not funny, but in the case of Brian Regan, it means streamlined, creative and enthusiastic. Audiences have been drawn to his howl-worthy comedy, which ranges from profound insights to silly exaggerations. Since his first appearance on "The Late Show With David Letterman" back in 1995, Regan has emerged as a viewer and audience favorite, typically making more than 80 stops a year to sold-out audiences across the country.

      Compagnia Finzi Pasca: La Verita
    • Friday, May 13, 2016
    • Written and directed by Cirque du Soleil "Corteo" creator Daniele Finzi Pasca, "La Verità" is a theatrical homage to the Surrealist artist Salvador Dali. Ideas and images collide in a decadent Vaudeville channeling of Dali's vision, as acrobats play instruments, sing, juggle, contort, clown and can-can amongst unfurling flowers, distorting shadows, ladders suspended in empty space, impossible balances, dismantled corpses, blindfolds, feathers and sequins.

      Pennsylvania Ballet: Balanchine & Beyond
    • Thursday, June 9, 2016
    • Witness the diversity of the human body in George Balanchine's "The Four Temperaments," a ballet inspired by the medieval belief that human beings are made up of four different humors that determine a person's temperament. In this ballet set to a score by Paul Hindemith, the dancers fill the stage with a variety of emotions ranging from gloom, to passion, to anger. In Hans Van Manen's "Adagio Hammerklavier," three couples enact a series of encounters which never quite achieve resolution. The dancers perform elaborate choreography alongside a bold score by Ludwig Van Beethoven, constantly disrupting the choreography in a beautiful manner. Trish Brown's "O zlozony/O composite," featuring a score by Laurie Anderson, rounds out the program.
