Music is all around us—in the wind, the rain, and the weird sounds that children make. Listen to something that’s actually been rehearsed with this GrouponLive deal to see Creed Bratton at the Wilbur Theatre on Saturday, April 6, at 7 p.m. For $15, you get one ticket for seating in the balcony, mezzanine, or floor (up to a $28.50 value, including all fees). Doors open at 6 p.m.<p>
While some might know Creed Bratton as just Creed—his character from NBC’s The Office—his musical history is just as notable. He first rose to prominence as a member of The Grass Roots, an act that rocketed to stardom in 1967 with the top-10 single “Let’s Live for Today.” Creed turned his success as a songwriter and guitarist with that band into a diverse career as an actor, a musician, and an actor-who-plays-a-musician. Now, whether playing solo, with backing band the 3DVBs, or alongside The Office cast mate Ed Helms, he lets loose with quirky folk-rock tunes that alternate between sweet and guffaw-inducing. His most recent album, Bounce Back, features Helms’ banjo on the catchy “Rubber Tree,” as well as “Love Me Like You Dance,” a ukulele-laden ditty that Muruch praises as “fun Hawaiian Honky-Tonk.”

A theater on the National Register of Historic Places, the Wilbur Theatre is now a premier venue for comedy and music. When it was built in 1914, the architect Clarence H. Blackall designed its porticos and brick façade with inspiration drawn from American Colonial architecture, characterized by a Federal Revival style that included powdered wigs hanging over every doorway. "The auditorium is, in its chaste way," architectural historian Douglas Tucci is quoted as saying on the theater's website, "the handsomest of any Boston playhouse."
