Introducing the new Teatro Latino at Marietta’s New Theatre in the Square! Marietta’s New Theatre in the Square presents In The Heights to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month! Over the course of the Tony award-winning musical, In the Heights, we encounter the many colorful residents of Washington Heights — a New York City neighborhood on the brink of change. Usnavi, a first generation Dominican-American corner bodega owner, and his friends and family are dealing with the pressures of rising rents and closing neighborhood businesses. As one family struggles to figure out how to pay for an Ivy League tuition for their brilliant and hard working daughter, a young woman is trying to put a down payment on a new apartment, and Usnavi himself is trying to get back to the Dominican Republic to reconnect with his roots after the death of his parents. In Washington Heights, community is everything, and we see how each of these individuals struggles to survive and how these same individuals come together as a community to mourn their losses and rejoice in their triumphs. Over the course of the show, we see the hard-working residents of Washington Heights grapple with love and lust, identity and racism, all while the prospect of a winning lottery ticket hangs in the air, potentially changing the livelihoods of the people and the community forever. This revolutionary new musical combines Latin rhythms and dance with hip-hop lyrics to tell a captivating story about what it means to chase your dreams as you cling to your roots, and to celebrate the community from which you grew.

The iconic film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, starring Spencer Tracy, Sidney Poitier and Katharine Hepburn, premiered in 1967 — just six months after anti-miscegenation laws were struck down by the Supreme Court in Loving v. Virginia. Adapting the piece for the stage in 2013 was a tall order: A lot about modern society had changed, and the film’s mega-stars had long-since passed away. Yet racial tensions continue to divide the country more than 50 years later. Playwright Todd Kreidler was up to the task, though, and managed to bring to the stage a compelling drama that speaks to today’s sensitivities, and even opting for a less certain ending that leaves the door open for conversation around the topic of inter-racial relationships. See Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner through a modern lens at Scottsdale’s Don Bluth Theatre.

There also happens to be an intriguing lullaby version of the song by kids group Jammy Jams. These particular Boys of Summer, though, are planning to rock Upland’s historic art-deco Grove Theater with all of the Eagles’ greatest hits.

Billy Cobham came to prominence in the late 1960s and early 1970s with trumpeter Miles Davis and then with the Mahavishnu Orchestra. According to AllMusic’s reviewer, Cobham is “generally acclaimed as fusion’s greatest drummer.” He was inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 1987 and the Classic Drummer Hall of Fame in 2013. Cobham’s influence stretched far beyond jazz: prog contemporaries Bill Bruford of King Crimson listened closely to what he was up to, younger drummers like Danny Carey of Tool learned from him, and even Prince played a version of Cobham’s “Stratus” in concert. There’s maybe no bigger fan than Phil Collins, who has named Mahavishnu’s Inner Mounting Flame as a key influence on his early style. “Billy Cobham played some of the finest drumming I’ve ever heard on that record,” he said (100 Great Drummers of All Time, Rolling Stone). 2019 marks Billy Cobham ́s 75th birthday. “It’s been an adventure, these 74 years that I have been blessed to experience so much in my life,” Billy says. To celebrate his long continuous career as well as his birthday, he put together different projects and regions he will focus on in 2019. The U.S. will feature the Crosswinds Project featuring Randy Brecker.

Candlebox is an American rock band from Seattle, Washington. Since its formation in 1990, the group has released six studio albums, which have achieved multi-platinum and gold certification, as well as numerous charting singles, a compilation and a CD+DVD. Candlebox was the first successful act on Maverick Records, which went on to sign Alanis Morissette, Deftones and The Prodigy. They found immediate success with the release of their self-titled debut album in July 1993. It featured the band’s biggest hit songs, “Far Behind” and “You,” and was certified Platinum by the RIAA four times. Their next two albums, Lucy and Happy Pills, also sold well. After troubles with Maverick, Candlebox broke up in 2000 after an alleged attempt to be freed from their contract. The band reunited in 2006, and two years later, they released their fourth album Into the Sun, followed by an extensive tour. Their latest album, Disappearing in Airports was released April 22, 2016. The band has toured or played selected shows with such bands as Living Colour, The Flaming Lips, Our Lady Peace, Rush, Henry Rollins, Aerosmith, Godsmack, Metallica, Radiohead, The Offspring, Sponge, Seaweed, Hinder, Suicidal Tendencies and Danzig.
