Stephen Lynch performing "Caught Me"
Warning: contains raunchy language and raunchier subject matter
The fact that the movie This is Spinal Tap inspired Stephen Lynch to go into show business says a lot about his comedic personality. Like Paul Simon if he took his lyrical cues from bathroom graffiti, Stephen is part polished musician, part raunchy standup, performing unabashedly off-color songs with undisguised glee. That winning combination caught the attention of Comedy Central, who featured him in two specials, and the notice of Tony Awards voters, who lauded his leading man turn in Broadway's The Wedding Singer. Today, Stephen returns to the stage and his wisecracking origins to entertain audiences with catchy choruses on racy topics.
Mayo Performing Arts Center
The Mayo Performing Arts Center straddles time. While one foot is planted in the old-fashioned charm of the 1930s movie-palace golden age, the other is firmly in the tech-savvy modern day. Between is a stretch of history that saw the theater fall into disrepair and then resurrect itself to its star-studded heyday thanks to volunteers. Since its 1994 rebirth, the center has welcomed everyone from the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg to Ringo Starr and Aretha Franklin. But, if the Mayo Center were a tripod, its third foot would certainly reach toward the future—a suite of education studios is on site to cultivate the next generation of performers.
