The Queen of Kings

Explore the turbulent, inspiring, and incredible career of one of the country’s most successful female songwriters during this Tony- and Grammy-winning musical onstage at the White Plains Performing Arts Center. Beautiful: The Carole King Musical tells the story of the hit-maker when she was still known as Carol Klein, and illuminates her meteoric rise to fame with some of her most celebrated songs, like “One Fine Day,” “So Far Away,” and “Natural Woman.”

Red, White, and Blues

Get up close and personal with a true Blues man when Martin Sexton descends upon Mamaroneck’s Emelin Theatre. Said to have a “soul-marinated voice” by Rolling Stone, Sexton’s acoustic-guitar-infused music has already been featured on shows like Scrubs and Masters of Sex and has echoed through hallowed venues like The Fillmore and Carnegie Hall. Now local audiences can catch this ultra-talented musician in the flesh.

Big Ben

Still famous for infectious, late 90s earworms like “Brick” and “Rockin’ the Suburbs,” Ben Folds is much more than a celebrated rocker. The New York Times bestselling author, actor, host of popular podcast Lightning Bugs: Conversations with Ben Folds, and widely acclaimed photographer will be hitting the Tarrytown Music Hall this month for an evening of piano-led tunes.
