January 29 - February 17, 2019

A true cultural phenomenon, Lin-Manuel Miranda's Pulitzer Prize-winning Hamilton is changing the face of the modern musical. An exhilarating historical epic, that is equal parts Sondheim and Notorious B.I.G., this record-breaking Broadway musical traces the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, one of America's most important (and colorful) historical figures.

John Prine

September 28, 2018

If there was any justice in the world, John Prine would be a household name. Playing in the Chicago folk scene of the early 70s, Prine was plucked from obscurity by Kris Kristofferson, an endorsement which helped to land him his first recording contract. Bob Dylan is also one of his biggest fans, terming Prine's work "pure Proustian existentialism". He's a singer who trades in life's little details, imbuing everyday existence with a kind of romantic grandeur. Now in his 60s, Prine is still going strong. It may be a while since his last record but he always seems to be on the road. He tends to tour with a very sparse backing band, leaving his words front and centre, just as they should be.

Tapping into the inner world of teachers, comedian and educator Eddie B has found his hilarious niche and established himself as a voice for teachers all around the world. If you've ever wondered what teachers were thinking but can't say out loud, then this show is for you!
