Ralphie May

Warning: contains profanity and political incorrectness

From the moment Ralphie May steps onstage, he demands attention. His unexpectedly boyish voice and sizable frame would be enough to attract notice, but it’s the jokes that really reel audiences in. He tosses off taboo-shredding barbs and stories in his inviting Southern drawl, demonstrating the unique charisma that won him second place in NBC’s Last Comic Standing and launched him into the comedy stratosphere. Ralphie has starred in several Comedy Central specials and DVDs, including Prime Cut, in which he pokes fun at the adorably awful hairstyles popular in his native Dixie, and Too Big to Ignore, in which he muses on the unforeseen perks of resembling a famous transgender celebrity. When he’s not visible on stage, Ralphie can be heard on the podcast Perfect 10 with fellow comedian and spouse Lahna Turner.

Genesee Theatre

Genesee Theatre began its life with a sellout. Opening its doors on Christmas Day 1927, it welcomed audiences to four sold-out movie screenings, but those flickering stories weren't the only attraction. A $25,000 pipe organ—and that's in old-timey dollars—immediately caught the eye, while Italian marble, a stunning chandelier, and the building's Spanish Renaissance–style architecture dazzled.

Over the years, many changes occurred, the glamorous quotient rising or dipping with the times and the theater closing altogether in 1989. But when it reopened again in 2004, it was back in full force. Antique chandeliers and fixtures of the period had been brought in from around the country, the luxe carpet had been re-created from a 1927 photograph, and all the dust bunnies had been sent packing with generous severance packages. Yet not all the updates were of the old-fashioned sort: the stage was doubled in size, and cutting-edge technology was brought in to give the theatre's high-voltage visitors, from comedians to musicians, the star treatment.
