Arizona Theatre Company: Cabaret
Arizona Theatre Company presents “Cabaret,” music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, directed by Sara Bruner. A powerful, musical love story centered on Sally Bowles, a talented cabaret performer at Berlin’s Kit Kat Club and Clifford Bradshaw, a struggling American writer looking for inspiration. Set in 1930’s Berlin during the Naz’s regime rise to take over the German government, Cabaret is a big award-winning critique of apathy, and a chilling look at totalitarianism, staged at the Temple of Music and Art.
Mercado Holiday Bazaar
Mercado San Agustin and Annex host the beloved Mercado Holiday Bazaar featuring 60+ makers, artists, and collectors. A family-friendly outdoor holiday shopping event.
Wally Lawder & Acoustic Sky’s Fifth Annual Christmas Celebration
Tucson folk staple Wally Lawder and his whole band bring their special Christmas show back to Monterey Court (“the Monty”) for the fifth time. Monterey Court is an historic motor court first opened in 1938 and repurposed in 2011 into a restaurant, bar, music Venue and artisan Enclave. Tuesday through Sunday we feature on our courtyard stage music acts and events both local and national, and sometimes even global. From your seats, patrons enjoy not only a great show, but a gourmet menu of dining delights, craft drinks, brews, and wines. Most seats are under cover but all are shaded with cooling mists in the summer and numerous heaters in the chilly months to keep our audience comfortable.
