David Alan Andersen knocks it out of the park as the star of ATC's 'Fences,' with Kim Staunton, Terry Bellamy, James T. Alfred, and Marcus Naylor.

“Fences” is one of the great plays of the American theatre, a beautifully written personal tale with mythic overtones of a black family’s struggles for happiness in Pittsburgh circa 1957. Here are five reasons for catching what may be one of the best dramatic presentations in Tucson this season. Read more» 1

Gilgamesh Taggett as Oliver Warbucks dances with Issie Swickle in the title role as Annie

Loosely based on "Little Orphan Annie," a Depression-era cartoon strip, the narrative of “Annie” is straightforward – plucky, red-headed orphan warms the heart of a billionaire industrialist. Along the way, she also inspires Franklin Delano Roosevelt, uplifts our hearts and adopts a dog. Read more»

From left to right: Victor Velasco (Sterling Boyns), Mrs. Banks (Jamie Grossman), and newlyweds Corie (Audrey Roberts) and Paul Bratter (Aaron Arseneault) are ready to leave for a matchmaking dinner that can only be summed up as hilarious in Arizona Repertory Theatre’s production of 'Barefoot in the Park' by Neil Simon.

Neil Simon is usually easy money for a theatre troupe. But in the case of Arizona Repertory Theatre’s “Barefoot in the Park,” the world of the early 1960s feels more like an off-kilter alternate reality than a fond memory. If the pre-Beatles Camelot culture represented here is to be believed, were we really so vapid and narrow-minded? Read more»

Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin at Arizona Theatre Company

A one-man show, especially a jukebox musical focused on a single composer, has inherent limitations. “Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin,” of course, has two key tools to overcome these challenges. The first is Berlin’s rich song catalog, featuring classics such as “Blue Skies,” “White Christmas” and “God Bless America.” The second is Hershey Felder himself. Read more»

RUNA, from Ireland, Canada and the U.S.

RUNA, one of the hottest young bands in Celtic music, will make its Tucson debut at the Berger Performing Arts Center on Friday. Their performances feature a kaleidoscope of instruments by the multi-talented musicians, as well as intricate Irish step-dancing. Read more»

The usually somber Henrik (Josh Dunn) enjoys a moment of bliss while dancing with his secret crush & young stepmother, Anne (Taylor Pearlstein), in UA Arizona Repertory Theatre’s musical production, 'A Little Night Music.'

The UA’s “A Little Night Music” should satisfy stalwart Steven Sondheim fans, who can be highly opinionated about his works. It is also a serviceable introduction for anyone not already familiar with America’s greatest living musical theatre composer. Read more»

Jazz guitarist Al Di Meola

The seminal jazz fusion guitarist reclaims the thundering music of his youth: “I feel like a rock 'n' roll guy! When we started out, there were three pioneering bands of that whole era and I was one the guys that emerged.” Di Meola will perform Tuesday at the Fox Theatre. Read more»

Singer/songwriter J.D. Souther

At first glance, '70s singer/songwriter J.D. Souther might seem an odd choice to play a jazz festival. But the secret ingredient in Saturday's gig will be world-class jazz pianist Billy Childs and a sextet setting. Read more»

Rogue’s ‘Jerusalem’ boys: Connor Foster as Davey, Nathan Oppenheimer as Lee, Joseph McGrath as Johnny ‘Rooster’ Byron and Ryan Parker Knox as Ginger

Rogue Theatre’s latest, "Jerusalem," focuses on Johnny “Rooster” Byron, a hard-drinking, profane but lovable ne’er-do-well and lady’s man. Rooster’s main redeeming quality is his drug dealing, reviled by proper town folk, but also quietly relied upon by the villagers. Inspired by William Blake and a life-loving Gypsy, the play explores life in the vanishing wilds of Britain. Read more»
