Lucinda Williams

Americana/Roots

Lucinda Williams may be the best roots- and blues-oriented songwriter working. Her songs have been covered by some of the most distinctive musicians of her generation, but she remains her own best interpreter. She exploded into public consciousness with her 1988 self-titled album, which was overflowing with songs everyone should hear at least once, including "Passionate Kisses," "Big Red Sun Blues," and the breakup anthem "Changed the Locks." Now in her 60s, she is selling out venues across North America and throughout Europe. Her Louisiana drawl gives her voice distinction. Her lyrics employ a pared-down vocabulary to tell stories in arrestingly original ways. Williams' writing has been influenced by the taste and example of her father, the poet Miller Williams, who died in 2015. She put one of his poems to music on her 2014 album, "Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone."

Les Miserables: National Tour

Musical

Cameron Mackintosh presents the new production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Tony Award-winning musical phenomenon, "Les Misérables," direct from an acclaimed two-and-a-half-year return to Broadway. This beloved musical by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg is based on Hugo's famous novel of 19th-century France. The action begins in 1815 as Jean Valjean is condemned to 19 years of hard labor for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his family. When he is released on parole, he finds only hatred and suspicion. Meeting one man who believes in him, Valjean breaks his parole to begin a new life. The story truly begins as Jean Valjean crosses the landscape of France, always pursued by the righteous police inspector Javert. From Valjean's adoption and love of the orphan Cosette, to the darkly funny plots of the thieving Thenardiers, from the soaring revolutionary fire set by student rebels fighting in the streets of Paris to the final confrontation between Jean Valjean and Javert, this story is one of love, courage and redemption. As the now-famous lyric from the show says, "To love another person is to see the face of God."

Legend persists that somewhere on iPlanet instruments still exist. Somewhere, the mighty axe of a great and hairy guitar god lies buried deep in rock.
