Playhouse 1960 Main Stage presents David Auburn’s Proof directed by Meredith Ann Gaines to open its 2019 – 2020 season. The production opens September 13 @ 8:00 pm. Opening night performance is followed with a champagne reception. "Proof" continues its run September 14, 20, 21, 27 & 28 @ 8:00pm. September 29 has a 3:00 pm matinee performance. "Proof" was awarded the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play. The play concerns Catherine, the daughter of Robert, a recently deceased mathematical genius in his fifties and professor at the University of Chicago, and her struggle with mathematical genius and mental illness. Catherine had cared for her father through a lengthy mental illness. Upon Robert's death, his ex-graduate student Hal discovers a paradigm-shifting proof about prime numbers in Robert's office. The title refers both to that proof and to the play's central question: Can Catherine prove the proof's authorship? Along with demonstrating the proof's authenticity, the daughter also finds herself in a relationship with 28-year-old Hal. Throughout, the play explores Catherine's fear of following in her father's footsteps, both mathematically and mentally and her desperate attempts to stay in control. [less-]

Take a rocking walk down memory lane through the halls of Rydell High in artFACTORY’s exciting new staging of "Grease!" The whole gang’s here; Danny and Sandy, Rizzo and Kenickie, the Burger Palace Boys, the Pink Ladies, and even Eugene. This blast-from-the-past piece of nostalgia includes all the songs you know and love (including “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightning,” “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” “Beauty School Dropout,” and “You’re the One I Want"), decked out with high-energy staging that will have you “hand-jiving” in your seats. It’s the first day of school for the class of 1959 at Rydell High, and naive transfer student, Sandy Dumbrowski, is still reminiscing about her romantic summer with teen heartthrob, Danny Zuko. When the Pink Ladies and their tough-as-nails leader, Rizzo, expose Danny for the pompous ladies’ man he is, Sandy soon finds that senior year may not turn out the way she expected. Meanwhile, Danny’s gang, the Burger Palace Boys are thinking about everything but school. Doody has learned four guitar chords and thinks he could be the next Elvis, Roger is focused on becoming the “mooning” champion of the world, Sonny only has eyes for the female figure, and Kenickie is polishing up his dream car, “Greased Lightning.” The Pink Ladies have dreams of their own too: Marty can’t wait for her deployed Marine boyfriend to return stateside, Frenchy has career goals in the beauty industry, Jan is looking for her next snack, and Rizzo is just looking for a good time. Time’s ticking toward graduation and these rambunctious teens are in for the ride of a lifetime! [less-]

Candlebox is an American rock band from Seattle, Washington. Since its formation in 1990, the group has released six studio albums, which have achieved multi-platinum and gold certification, as well as numerous charting singles, a compilation and a CD+DVD. Candlebox was the first successful act on Maverick Records, which went on to sign Alanis Morissette, Deftones and The Prodigy. They found immediate success with the release of their self-titled debut album in July 1993. It featured the band's biggest hit songs, "Far Behind" and "You," and was certified Platinum by the RIAA four times. Their next two albums, "Lucy" and "Happy Pills", also sold well. After troubles with Maverick, Candlebox broke up in 2000 after an alleged attempt to be freed from their contract. The band reunited in 2006, and two years later, they released their fourth album "Into the Sun", followed by an extensive tour. Their latest album, Disappearing in Airports was released April 22, 2016. The band has toured or played selected shows with such bands as Living Colour, The Flaming Lips, Our Lady Peace, Rush, Henry Rollins, Aerosmith, Godsmack, Metallica, Radiohead, The Offspring, Sponge, Seaweed, Hinder, Suicidal Tendencies and Danzig. They were also a featured band on the main-stage at Woodstock '94 and made repeat live performances on "Late Show with David Letterman". [less-]
