Joan Curto, Beckie Menzie & Tom Michael, "Richard Rodgers Reimagined"

Cabaret icons and Wilson Center favorites Joan Curto, Beckie Menzie, and Tom Michael return to The Harris Theater for a 75th anniversary celebration of the timeless music of Richard Rodgers. On March 31, 1943, the musical Oklahoma! opened on Broadway and forever changed the trajectory of musical theatre. This was Richard Rodgers’ first collaboration with Oscar Hammerstein II and would be the beginning of the most successful partnership in the history of American musical theatre. Richard Rodgers Reimagined features new arrangements and interpretations of the music he composed with both Hammerstein and his first partner, Lorenz Hart—music that is still performed somewhere in the world every day of the week. Tickets: $20-$26 Prices may rise based on demand. 262-781-9520 or www.wilson-center.com boxoffice@wilson-center.com Corporate/individual groups of 10+ receive 5% off. Nonprofit groups of 10+ receive 10% off. The Wilson Center is located in Brookfield's Mitchell Park, off Capitol Drive, just west of Brookfield Road. Parking is always free!

Ranky Tanky

“Gullah” comes from West African language and means “a people blessed by God.” “Ranky Tanky” translates loosely as “work it,” or “get funky”! In this spirit, the Charleston-based quintet performs timeless music of Gullah culture born in the southeastern Sea Island region of the United States. Ranky Tanky released their eponymous debut on October 20, 2017. By December 2017, the group had been profiled on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross and their album soared to #1 on Billboard, iTunes, and Amazon jazz charts. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the musical roots of Charleston are fertile ground from which these artists are grateful to have grown. Tickets: $34-$60 Prices may rise based on demand. 262-781-9520 or www.wilson-center.com boxoffice@wilson-center.com Corporate/individual groups of 10+ receive 5% off. Nonprofit groups of 10+ receive 10% off. The Wilson Center is located in Brookfield's Mitchell Park, off Capitol Drive, just west of Brookfield Road. Parking is always free!
