Shenandoah Shakespeare Express
Praised by critics for "blowing the cobwebs out of Elizabethan drams," Shenandoah Shakespeare Express promises shamelessly entertaining theater. They will perform two popular Shakespeare plays during their visit to Bentley: The Taming of the Shrew (Nov. 5) and The Tempest (Nov. 6).
Folk music diva and activist Odetta performs a holiday concert at Bentley. Her range of songs includes blues, jazz and spirituals, often accompanied by her unique guitar style. In her 50+ years of performing, Odetta has sung for presidents, on TV, with symphony orchestras and pop bands. She has also performed hundreds of benefit concerts for the protection of civil rights.
Marian Anderson String Quartet
The Marian Anderson String Quartet was the first African-American group to win a major classical music competition, the International Cleveland Quartet Competition, in 1991. From soup kitchens to presidential inaugurals, from juvenile correctional facilities to the great concert halls of the world, the Anderson Quartet has upheld its mission to create new and diverse audiences for chamber music.
Chicago City Limits
New York's longest running comedy revue, Chicago City Limits, raises improvisational theater to an art form. CCL has been seen nationally on HBO and The Today Show and has performed at such diverse venues as Lincoln Center and the Super Bowl. Their comedy and improvisation skills have made the troupe one of America's favorites.
Individual tickets are $7 (except for Odetta, which is $10) and season tickets are $35 for the general public. Tickets can be purchased at the Student Center Information Desk in advance or at the Koumantzelis Auditorium Box Office in Lindsay Hall one hour prior to each show.
