Chasin Dem Blues

A Celebration of the Blues

For a few brief, bright years at the height of the jazz and blues age, Paramount Records was the leading label for recording artists of color in the Midwest – and broke down small-town racial barriers along the way. Artists such as Louis Armstrong, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Alberta Hunter and Ma Rainey all recorded there. This exuberant musical celebration of some of the greatest jazz and blues music features four sensational quadruple threat performers guiding the journey through story and song.  Learn More »

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

A Trailblazing Rock-Musical

Winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, this musical sensation played to record-breaking sell-out crowds on Broadway telling the story of one of the most unique characters to ever hit the stage. To walk away, you’ve got to leave something behind – and so Hansel Schmidt does, transforming into Hedwig. Everything seems perfect until her husband leaves. With nothing left, she returns to her first love — music.  Learn More »
