Two upcoming shows at the AT&T Performing Arts Center couldn’t be more different, but there are a few common threads that unite the two. First up, we have Michael FEINstein and Nicole Henry bringing popular American songs to life. Then in January, it’s Young FRANKENstein who’s bringing something altogether different to life.
Both shows will be at the fabu Winspear Opera House, but perhaps the greatest thing they have in common is that tickets are available for both shows at deeply discounted prices this week only for Gay List Daily readers.
Born In The USA
For one night only, spend an evening with the multi-platinum, five-time Grammy winning legend hailed as the world’s foremost anthropologist, archivist and interpreter of American popular song and advisor to the Library of Congress, the one, the only Michael Feinstein! (We hear he can also leap tall buildings in a single bound and bend metal objects with his mind.)
Joining Feinstein onstage for this musical event is international top-selling jazz singer Nicole Henry. Together, they will interpret both timeless classics and little-known songs from one book you can’t get for your Kindle or iPad: The American Songbook.

It’s Alive! (And It Sings!)
Before our thoughts completely turn to roasted turkey and making out under the mistletoe, let’s try to keep the Halloween spirit alive for just a few more days. (That’ll give us an excuse to keep eating all these miniature Snickers bars on our desks.)
Tickets are now on sale for Young Frankenstein, the new Mel Brooks musical, and we can’t wait to roll, roll, roll in the hay with Inga, walk this way with Igor and sing along with Frau Blucher and the horses who adore her at the AT&T Performing Arts Center this January.
We caught the show during its Broadway run and as expected, it’s pure Mel Brooks madness. The production values are extraordinary, the musical numbers are addictively catchy and the whole show is filled with all the great sight gags we’ve come to love and expect from the zany mind of Mr. Brooks.
Filled with show-stopping dance sequences, hilarious dialogue and lyrics, this isn’t just a musical version of the movie. It’s a musical version of the movie on steroids. Expanded scenes and additional plot details reward fans who’ve memorized every line of the original, but also lay out the story in complete detail for anyone who (gasp!) has never seen the film version.
Now we know January seems like a long time away, but what better way to bounce back from the post-holiday blues than watching a monster created from the body parts of dead people do a little soft-shoe and fall into a chorus line? Plus, with the special savings being offered to Gay List Daily readers, it’s a bargain that can’t be beat. But unlike Frankenstein’s monster, this deal dies for good on Sunday, November 7.
