At David's Grill & Bar, hand-cut rye, rosemary-ciabatta sub slices, and folded tortillas ensconce cheeses, deli and grill-fresh meats, and colorful veggies. The chefs paint sandwiches and wraps with innovative elixirs such as garlic-basil aioli, spicy thai-peanut sauce, and orange-chipotle mayo, yet still take the time to build classics such as the reuben and the chicken-caesar wrap. Their breakfast options include croissants, omelets, muffins, pastries, and more. For catered events, the crew members at David's prepare lunch trays, salad bowls, and entrees, packing them up and delivering them to your office or spreading them out at their own facility, which offers views of Lake Erie and the Canadians who occasionally crawl out of it.
For one night, the State Theatre opens its curtained portal to the past so that audiences can glimpse a time when the Philly sound dominated and velvet-voiced singers in synchronized suits crooned soulful songs of love and heartbreak. The Stylistics take center stage with renditions of their classic hits such as "Betcha by Golly, Wow" and the immortal, bittersweet ballad "You Are Everything." Also playing are the Chi-Lites, of the irresistibly funky "Are You My Woman," and the Emotions––the trio of divas that penned 1977's "Best of My Love." The oft-sampled Delfonics heat up the stage with smooth spins, sharp suits, and controlled fires, as do The Blue Notes, who keep up an energetic stage presence in their heartbreaker "The Love I Lost."
Girls Night: The Musical plots five friends center stage as they ponder their past, celebrate their present, and silently think about robot designs for the future during one comedic night of karaoke. Actresses belt out renditions of such female classics as “Lady Marmalade,” “Man I Feel Like A Woman,” and “I Will Survive” amid vibrant set pieces, and 14th Street Theatre's intimate table seating ensures all 288 guests can see every smirk, eye roll, and subtle back flip with ease. Groupon holders receive the best non-VIP seats possible (any table other than tables A–G) upon the redemption of their vouchers at the theater's will-call station.
When it comes to describing Kristin Chenoweth, "multitalented" is an understatement. Overlaying a soaring voice with sparkling charisma, Chenoweth won the 1999 Tony for best featured actress in a musical and originated the role of Glinda the Good Witch in the smash Broadway hit Wicked, earning both fame as the definitive incarnation of that character and the legal right to carry an Oz passport. Her forays into television have included an Emmy win for Pushing Daisies, a stint on The West Wing, a guest appearance on Glee, and a starring role in ABC's new comedy GCB. Mixing classically trained control with the ability to call up a folksy twang from her childhood in Oklahoma, Chenoweth regales audiences with heartbreaking ballads and high-energy romps.
Since beat-boxing its way onto the scene in 1988 with a platinum self-titled debut that garnered two Grammy awards, Take 6 has consistently delivered a smooth, instrument-free blend of jazz, gospel, and R & B. The sextet serenades fans into a satiated torpor with its smooth devotionals, only to rile them up again with a rousing rendition of So Much 2 Say. This a cappella sextet has corralled a choir of awards including numerous Grammy wins and 10 Dove awards, with such accolades as Best Vocal Jazz Performance, Best Contemporary Soul Gospel Album, and Group Most Divisible by Three. Selling millions of albums over a span of more than two decades, Take 6 has established itself as a powerful force of mellifluous good.
Twenty-two years ago in Sydney, Australia, then-high-school students Andrew Tierney, Mike Tierney, Phil Burton, and Toby Allen were drawn together by an anachronistic passion for Motown and doo-wop. Nine albums and a 2.5-year residency in Las Vegas later, the fresh-faced foursome are touring the land that spawned the music they love with a tour presented by Smokey Robinson, who joined in on the recording Get Ready on their album and also helped polish production values and fend off mood-killingly weepy clowns. Other classics in the crooning quartet's repertoire include "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "Dancing in the Street," and an a capella take on "Just My Imagination."
