“Come From Away”
Monday, Oct. 23, 8 p.m.
Celebrate the best of humankind at “Come From Away.” Stirring and inspiring, this New York Times critics’ pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of the small town in Newfoundland that opened its homes to 7,000 stranded travelers on 9/11. During that fateful week, cultures clashed and nerves ran high — but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
“My Fair Lady”
Wednesday, Feb. 14, 7:30 p.m.
From Lincoln Center Theater and lyricist and librettist Alan Jay Lerner and composer Frederick Loewe comes “a sumptuous new production of the most perfect musical of all time,” according to Entertainment Weekly, “My Fair Lady.” Boasting such classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” and “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” “My Fair Lady” tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.” But who is really being transformed? Complete with an updated ending twist, Director Bartlett Sher’s glowing production is “thrilling, glorious and better than it ever was,” according to The New York Times.
Tickets for the performances are $45-$95 for general public and $25-$75 for youth 18 and under. A limited number of Virginia Tech student tickets are available for $10. Tickets are available to the public beginning Thursday, Aug. 3, at 10 a.m. and can be purchased online; at the Moss Arts Center’s box office, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; or by calling 540-231-5300 during box office hours.
