It’s an exciting week here at Blumenthal Performing Arts. First and foremost, we kick off a brand new Broadway season! The 2014-2015 PNCPNC BL logo Broadway Lights officially begins tomorrow night with Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella in Belk Theater. We hope you have your tickets because the show is almost sold out. If you don’t, CLICK HERE fast and see if you can secure a seat! You won’t want to miss this Tony-award winning Broadway musical — a beautiful new version of the classic tale we all know and love. The show plays through Sunday.

Then on Thursday, for one night only, it’s the country a cappella band Home Free! They were crowned season four champions of NBC’s “The Sing-Off” last December. Their victory was by no means the beginnings of a career for the five country stars from Minnesota, rather it was a satisfying culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and commitment to a vocal craft growing in popularity. Founded by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp during their college years in the early 2000s, Home Free had been perfecting its live show for years prior to “The Sing-Off,” performing for crowds in many state and county fairs, on college campuses, in front of Fortune 500 companies, and in theaters all across the country. It was their experience on the road that carried them to a “Sing-Off” victory, swelling their fan base and bringing their homegrown country style into a national spotlight. Don’t miss them in McGlohon Theater this Thursday night! CLICK HERE for tickets!

Buddy Guy comes to Knight Theater Sunday!

And finally, on Sunday it’s the man who always brings down the house in true blues style. At age 77, Buddy Guy is undoubtedly a living legend. The most exciting man in blues has earned six Grammy Awards, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, a ranking in the top 30 of Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,” and most recently, a Kennedy Center Honors. His legendary showmanship on stage, fueled by the passion and excitement of his music, has been filling venues around the country for decades. Don’t miss him in Knight Theater, when he continues to deliver his classic hits with the same energy he had when he first picked up a guitar over 50 years ago.
