The Peking Acrobats @ Pantages Theater
Jan 26 @ 3:00 pm

The Peking Acrobats are a South Sound favorite! They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs; are experts at trick-cycling, precision tumbling, somersaulting and gymnastics; and defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility and control. Masters of agility and grace, they push the envelope of human possibility. Often accompanied by live musicians playing traditional Chinese instruments and high-tech special effects, this show delivers an exuberant performance, with all the excitement and festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival!

The Choir of Man @ Pantages Theater

Enjoy a performance that combines high-energy dance, live percussion, and foot stomping choreography with the incredible talent of nine handsome blokes who perform everything from sing-along classics to classic rock.

It is a pint-filled good time featuring the music of Paul Simon, Adele, Queen, Guns ’N’ Roses, SIA, and much more! Hear music from classic rock to Broadway, plus the show includes world-class tap dancers, tumblers, and even a UK Poetry Slam champion. Winner of the best overall Pick of the Fringe award at the 2018 Adelaide Fringe Festival, the world’s second largest annual arts festival. The Choir of Man is the runaway hit from the creative minds of Nic Doodson and Andrew Kay – the team behind The Soweto Gospel Choirs.

Oleanna @ Theater on the Square
Feb 6 @ 7:30 pm

Named one of Time Magazine’s “Ten Best Plays,” Oleanna is a seething investigation of sexual harassment, political correctness, and the irreconcilable differences between men and women. Pulitzer Prize Winner David Mamet pulls us into a provocative power struggle where “he said, she said” reaches deeply personal and explosive levels. This two-person story focuses on a university professor and his student as they view their out-of-class meetings from two drastically different perspectives. The audience will be challenged to decided what it means to be right or wrong in the midst of individual interpretations. This drama shines a spotlight on gender politics, privilege, status and power. Oleanna may provoke more arguments than any play you will see this year. For mature audiences. Talk-back with Director and Actors on February 23 following the 3:00 PM show. Preview Night: Thursday, February 6 at 7:30 PM. For complete performance schedule, visit tacomaartslive.org or call 253-591-5894.

The Naked Magicians @ Rialto Theater
Feb 7 @ 7:30 pm
The Naked Magicians @ Rialto Theater

Seen on London’s West End, The Naked Magicians are undoubtedly the world’s funniest and naughtiest magic show! This show features magic, mirth, and more than a touch of mayhem as two hot and hilarious Aussie magicians say abracadabra and take magic to a whole new level. This boisterous R-rated magic show strips away the top hats and capes, promising full-frontal illusions. Left without sleeves or pockets, their saucy magic is baffling and entertaining, bringing a new meaning to “now you see it.” Good magicians don’t need sleeves and great magicians don’t need pants. This show proves just that!

Tribes @ Theater on the Square
Mar 26 @ 7:30 pm

We inherit our first tribe, the family. Our tribe speaks their own language, both literally and emotionally. Billy was born deaf into a hearing family, but raised to fit into the hearing world. His parents and siblings fiercely cling to their funny, quirky, and politically incorrect world-views, but, Billy has adapted brilliantly to his family’s unconventional ways. And yet they’ve never bothered to return the favor. It’s not until he meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness, that he finally understands what it means to be understood, to be seen, to be honored. Comic twists mix with charged emotions in a play that universally speaks to all of us. For detailed performance schedule, visit tacomaartslive.org.

The Righteous Brothers @ Pantages Theater
Mar 28 @ 7:30 pm

With a string of No. 1 classics, including “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’” – the most played song in radio history – the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame duo of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield has topped the charts over four decades. After Bobby’s death in 2003, Bill continued to perform to sold-out crowds around the world, but fans and friends pleaded with him to keep The Righteous Brothers alive. While no one could ever take Bobby’s place, when Bill discovered Bucky Heard’s show it all came together – he found the right guy to help him recreate the magic. The concert experience features their biggest hits, including “Lovin’ Feelin’,” “Soul & Inspiration,” “Unchained Melody” and “The Time of My Life,” and much more!
