Bombshell Of Rhythm (The life & Secrets of Ina Ray Hutton)
“Power, skill and some awfully fetching vocals!”–StageBuddy.com
“Melissa Ritz has the moxie to match…an evocative journey through time that’s not to be missed.”– Las Vegas Review Journal
Ina Ray Hutton was the most successful female bandleader of the Big Band era. She conducted The Melodears, an all-girl band, and was the first woman to conduct male bands in the 1940’s. Ina was the first woman to have her own TV show in the 1950’s.
Ina hailed from the south-side of Chicago. At the age of 8, a vaudeville producer recognized her tap dancing abilities and arranged for her to move to NYC to perform in his children’s show. This event led to a remarkable 30 year career in entertainment. However, her success in the spotlight was threatened by a secret she couldn’t afford to reveal at that time.
Accompanied by 14 songs from the Big Band Era, “Bombshell Of Rhythm” uses music, dance and story telling to reveal the life and secrets of Ina Ray Hutton. Taking her to the stages of Broadway, television and beyond…

Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind
Same time each week. Different show each week!
With its ever-changing “menu” of plays, Too Much Light… is an attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes—an original concept by Greg Allen. The audience is fully part of the act, deciding the order that these plays are performed. Each week, these plays shift as ensemble members add new plays to the existing body of work. The single unifying element of these plays is that they are performed from a perspective of absolute honesty. Read more about what it means to be a “Neo-Futurist.”

Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis

Carlos Henriquez: Back in the Bronx
To kick off Jazz at Lincoln Center’s new season, Bronx native Carlos Henriquez brings the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis back to the Bronx with a one-night-only performance at Lehman Center for the Performing Arts, where his compositions and most notable Latin jazz arrangements will be front and center. Joined by special guest percussionists, Henriquez presents music that shows the breadth of his technical and stylistic dexterity. Henriquez is truly homegrown talent, both of the Bronx, and of Jazz at Lincoln Center, who has become a cornerstone of a shared story.
One of the first truly bilingual musicians, equally virtuosic with the language of jazz and the Afro-Latin tradition, Carlos Henriquez – the Bronx-born, Nuyorican veteran bassist of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra – is a force to be reckoned with. By age 14, Henriquez was performing at People’s Park, across the street from his high school, with Latin jazz greats Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, and Celia Cruz, and as a member of the first ever top-placing Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Festival and Competition jazz band, Henriquez’ roots with Jazz at Lincoln Center run deep.
