All individual tickets to The Lincoln Center’s fresh new 2016/17 performing arts season will go on sale August 10th. Filled with first-rate musical acts like Colbie Caillat, Art Garfunkel, and 20-time Grammy Award-winning jazz guitarist Pat Metheny, the season promises to deliver something for just about every musical taste.
“We are thrilled to bring this exciting array of performances to the stage and to the community,” stated Lincoln Center General Manager, Jack Rogers. “We truly think there is something for everyone within this season.”
The season also features other can’t-miss musical acts. In The Summit: The Manhattan Transfer Meets Take 6, two highly-acclaimed vocal groups (boasting a remarkable 20 Grammy Awards between them) will come together for the first time. Also, if you’re a bluegrass fan, you’ll want to catch The Hillbenders present Tommy: A Bluegrass Opry. Forty-five years after its original release, The Who’s rock opera Tommy has been fully realized as a full-length bluegrass tribute by one of the hottest young bluegrass bands on the scene today.
The upcoming season also features side-splitting comedy acts like the newly announced comedian and star of the Netflix series Lady Dynamite Maria Bamford. Film icons Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes from Chasing Amy and Clerks fame will record their #1 ranked comedy podcast live on stage in Jay and Silent Bob Get Old. The cast of TV’s Emmy-nominated show Whose Line Is It Anyway? will put on a hilarious improvised performance of Whose Live Anyway? and The Capitol Steps, will leave folks on both sides of the spectrum in stitches with their election-year political lampooning.
Rounding out the season are also three national tours of big Broadway hit shows—Rent, Once, and Pippin. A Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning landmark rock musical, Rent is returning to the stage for a vibrant 20th Anniversary tour. Featuring an ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments, Once won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album along with eight 2012 Tony Awards®. Full of extraordinary acrobatics, Pippin is a high-flying, death-defying hit Broadway musical with soaring songs from the composer of Wicked.
Of the new season, Rogers adds, “It’s a mix of old favorites and new experiences. This new season is jam-packed with exciting performances that are guaranteed to stir your soul.”
Also noteworthy this season, the Lincoln Center has placed a bigger emphasis on their newly named ‘The Big Deal’ seating. These seats are limited in number, located in the final rows of the theater, and are available from $15 to $25.
All Big Deal and individual show tickets go on sale at noon on August 10. You can check out the full show lineup and purchase tickets at LCtix.com.
