He has performed for eleven U.S. Presidents, is a World War II veteran who fought in the Battle of the Bulge and participated in the liberation of a concentration camp, and marched side by side with Dr. Martin Luther King in Selma to support civil rights.  His love for his country has earned him the distinction of national treasure and United Nations has named him a Citizen of the World as one of their foremost ambassadors.

On the heels of her newly-released 2019 album “The Debut,” Evancho returns to The Smith Center to perform wildly popular melodies from hit contemporary musicals, including “Hamilton,” blockbuster musical film “The Greatest Showman,” and more of today’s top Broadway smashes, including “Dear Evan Hansen,” “Waitress,” “Once” and “Spring Awakening.”

Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer John Fogerty returns to Wynn in April to debut “My 50-Year Trip,” a new concert celebrating both the iconic musician’s half-century onstage and perhaps his best-known performance: the legendary New York music festival, Woodstock. With the festival’s 50th anniversary approaching in August 2019, Fogerty has put together an evening that highlights songs that were created at that time, like “Born On The Bayou,” “Proud Mary,” and all the fan favorites from Creedence Clearwater Revival, including Fogerty’s original Woodstock set List. Encore Theater is the perfect venue for this special evening, combining outstanding acoustics with an intimate vibe to showcase a montage of vintage photography and Fogerty’s own stories about one of the greatest musical gatherings of all time.  
Please join us for this exciting performance.
 
   
 
Inspired by the timeless story of Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story takes Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, and places them in the vibrant battleground of New York City’s West Side in the 1950s. Amid the deep-seated rivalry between the Puerto Rican gang, the Sharks, and the white gang, the Jets, Maria and Tony discover that ancient grudges are no match for true love.  Their warring factions, however, refuse to back down, and the “rumbles,” romance and resentment lead the bloody path to the lovers’ ultimate, tragic conclusion.  With soaring, sophisticated and diverse melodies, energetic and athletic dance battles, and its remarkably salient social message, West Side Story remains one of American musical theatre’s most revolutionary and most loved treasures.
