  • Live Nation National
    Hershey Theatre The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.

  • "Bye Bye Liver"
    Bye Bye Liver has been busting the chops of mutton- and non-mutton-chopped Chicagoans for the past three years. The show flows through a series of skignettches, which is comedish for ?sketch vignettes,? parodying the intoxicating world of drinking, barhopping, drinking, and drinking. Many interactive games played during the show break down the fourth wall of the theater, fusing the estranged cast and audience into a familiar bunch of suds-soaked pals. All shows are 21+ in accordance with the United States Declaration of Independence.
