We asked our Director of Marketing & Box Office Operations for her Top Five Picks of the upcoming season.
Here’s how it went!
Stephanie did not hesitate on her first pick. She immediately named the highly entertaining Michael Cavanaugh who will perform some of the greatest hits from two of the greatest piano men on the planet: Billy Joel and Elton John.
“Who doesn’t love Billy Joel and Elton John songs?” asked Stephanie.
Not that she expected an answer, but honestly, we cannot think of a single person.
With iconic hits like “Piano Man” – “We Didn’t Start the Fire” – “Benny and the Jets” and “Tiny Dancer,” we know it’s going to be a great time.
After pointing out that we may have been pronouncing the show’s name incorrectly around the Box Office for a few days, Stephanie quickly named HYPROV (pronounced hip-rawv) as her second pick. From the brilliant minds of Improv Legend Colin Mochrie and Master Hypnotist Asad Mecci comes a brand new, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping, slide-splitting show. 20 volunteers are hypnotized on stage, whittled down to five of the best who do improv scenes with Colin Mochrie WHILE THEY ARE STILL UNDER HYPNOSIS. What can possibly go wrong? Come and see for yourself!
Stephanie is ready for JOHN PIZZARELLI. She said the world-renowned guitarist and singer is her mother’s favorite. Since Stephanie’s mother, Evelyn Moulton happens to be one of the show’s sponsors (and the Webb Center’s #1 Facebook Fan) we know she’ll be in attendance when John Pizzarelli visits the theater on Valentine’s Day.
Next up, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Stephanie still sounds amazed by the opportunity to see the orchestra live on stage this season. This performance happens December 10 at 7:30 p.m.
Founded in 1988, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis tours the world performing a vast repertoire of music, from historic and rare compositions to commissioned works. The group’s compositions and arrangements include works by Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Fletcher Henderson, Thelonious Monk, Mary Lou Williams, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman, and Charles Mingus, as well as new music from the group’s unrivalled collection of world-renowned composers and arrangers.
No one can blame Stephanie for not choosing between these two performances.

A journey through a special time in American pop music that pays homage to the musical legacy of Laurel Canyon, CA.A rock & roll neighborhood, Laurel Canyon originates from its intersection with Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood.

Classic Albums Live performs Fleetwood Mac, Rumours Always a favorite at the Webb Center, Classic Albums Live is back, this time to perform the Fleetwood Mac album, Rumours in a note-for-note, cut-for-cut rock recital. Rumours includes the songs “Go Your Own Way”, “Dreams”, “Don’t Stop”, and “You Make Loving Fun.” Often considered Fleetwood Mac’s magnum opus, it has frequently been cited as one of the greatest albums of all time.
