Josh Ritter

With startling detail, distinctive storytelling, compelling subject matter and astonishing musicianship, Ritter has developed a singular voice that doesn’t defy categorization so much as it creates its own. Idaho born singer-songwriter Josh Ritter has been called one of the “10 Most Exciting Artists Now” by Entertainment Weekly and one of the “100 Best Living Songwriters” by Paste Magazine.The New York Times praises: “Josh Ritter has a way with metaphor. It’s one of the literary touches in his music that have established him among the cream of the young singer-songwriter crop.” His sixth studio album “The Beast In It’s Tracks” was released in March to more critical acclaim with NPR Music calling it “gorgeous and glorious.” Opening for Josh Ritter will be Acoustic singer/songwriter and Monmouth University Music Industry Student Natalie Zeller.

Allelujah!

Alan Bennett’s sharp and hilarious new play is ‘just what the doctor ordered’ (Daily Telegraph). Filmed live at London’s Bridge Theatre during its limited run, don’t miss this acclaimed production full of ‘singalongs and stinging wit’ (Guardian).

The Beth, an old fashioned cradle-to-grave hospital serving a town in Yorkshire, is threatened with closure as part of an efficiency drive. A documentary crew, eager to capture its fight for survival, follows the daily struggle to find beds on the Dusty Springfield Geriatric Ward, and the triumphs of the old people’s choir. One of Britain’s most celebrated writers, Alan Bennett’s plays include The History Boys, The Lady in the Van and The Madness of George III, all of which were also seen on film. Allelujah! is his tenth collaboration with award-winning director Nicholas Hytner.
