Pollak Theatre - 8 PM

John Ball’s 1965 novel, In the Heat of the Night, which was adapted into a five time Academy Award-winning film starring Sidney Poitier and a hugely popular television series, tells the story of black police detective Virgil Tibbs passing through the small town in the Carolinas on a hot August night in an America during the 1960s grappling with integration and an evolving acceptance of the Civil Rights Movement. Now in conjunction with LA Theatre Works, the foremost radio theatre company in the United States, playwright and screenwriter Matt Pelfrey’s riveting stage adaptation of this classic American thriller comes to life in a "live-in-performance" radio drama.

Jason Isbell

Feb 6

Jason Isbell 

Pollak Theatre - 8 PM

A former member of the Southern rock outfit Drive by Truckers, Jason Isbell’s solo career has seemed effortless, from Sirens of the Ditch (2007) to Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit (2009), through Here We Rest (2011) and last year’s Live From Alabama. He writes open -hearted songs full of storm and drama, bursting with personal truths, and echoing with the southern sound of his Alabama upbringing. Embracing his newfound sobriety, Isbell next produced an album of haunting atonement and redemption, the sparse and impressive Southeastern, which was a critical success and commercial breakthrough. Tickets on sale Friday, August 22 at 10 am.
