The Kravis Center recently released its official 2018-19 season calendar, and we’re already fighting the urge to line up at the box office. Below, we highlight 7 events that top our must-see list.
- Jerry Seinfeld, October 26. The man, the myth, the fusilli—Jerry Seinfeld returns to the Kravis Center’s Dreyfoos Hall for an evening of laughs based on Seinfeld’s insight into the nothingness that is daily life. Fans can get a double dose of Seinfeld with two showtimes scheduled for 7 and 9:30 p.m.
- Mannheim Steamroller Christmas by Chip Davis, November 21. Love them or hate them, it just isn’t Christmas without Mannheim Steamroller. Besides, can you name a band who delivers a more epic version of “Carol of the Bells”? We’ll wait…
- Alan Cumming, December 9. Originally from Scotland, stage actor Alan Cumming contemplates life as an alien in his latest cabaret show, Legal Immigrant. Come for the storytelling but stay for the show tunes—and Cumming’s fiercely entertaining Disney medley.
- Celebrating Ella: Live from the Apollo, January 5. Ella Fitzgerald’s fiery vocals could illuminate the darkest days of winter. Celebrating Ella brings together some of today’s top vocalists, with each representing a different era from Fitzgerald’s career.
- Body Talk by Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, February 8-9. It’s time to get real and talk about our bodies using the language of dance. A Griot, or storyteller, weaves together physical interpretations of works by African American playwrights in this contemporary dance piece.
- Friends! The Musical Parody, March 19-20. Need we say more? Fans of this quintessential ’90s sitcom will absolutely want to be there for this rehash of the show’s best moments—from the “we were on a break” debacle to countless renditions of “Smelly Cat,” and all the ugly naked guys in between.
- Bernadette Peters, April 14. The original Queen of Broadway will perform songs, from Sondheim and back again, in this one-night-only visit to West Palm. This red-headed septuagenarian (what?!) has led one of the best careers in musical theater history, and this showing will be a testament to her unparalleled powers.
