Live Music: Usual Suspects | February 11
The Usual Suspects formed in 1998 as a traditional jazz trio with piano, bass and drums. Having been influenced by so many other styles of music, it was evident early on that “traditional” was not the word to describe the music. Since 2000, the Usual Suspects has taken on many forms, from traditional and smooth jazz settings, neo-soul and R&B shows, to hosting and backing up spoken word events, and writing and recording original compositions. See them at Lumiere Place this Saturday.
Something Rotten! at the Fox Theatre | February 7 – 19
Set in 1595, this hilarious smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write a hit play. When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical.
