Liz Longley

The Redstone Room

Wednesday, April 15, 7:30 p.m.


Davenport’s Redstone Room will host a very special concert event on April 15, and I know what you’re thinking: Ugh – April 15. That annual day of dread, knowing the obligation you have to attend to before midnight that, as usual, you’re almost criminally – perhaps literally criminally – unprepared for.

I’m referring, of course, to April 15 being my dad’s birthday. How does this date keep sneaking up on me? I mean, I had a whole year to pick out the perfect tie!

Happily, though, this year’s April 15 will be made much sweeter via the Redstone Room concert with songwriting chanteuse Liz Longley, whose album-release tour makes a local stop in support of her new, self-titled offering.

Just how big a smash is Jersey Boys? So big that in an Adler Theatre lineup currently boasting 19 springtime events, the Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons musical accounts for nearly half of ’em.

Leon Russell

The Redstone Room

Friday, March 20, 7:30 p.m.


Leon Russell will soon be taking the stage at Davenport’s Redstone Room, and calling the 72-year-old singer, songwriter, session musician, producer, pianist, guitarist, and recording-company owner a musical icon is practically an understatement.

He’s worked professionally, and consistently, since 1956. He’s mastered the genres of rock, country, pop, blues, jazz, gospel, and even surf music. He’s enjoyed a chart-topping duet with Willie Nelson. He’s performed and collaborated with artists as disparate as Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, and Doris Day. And in 2014, 44 years after the release of his self-titled solo debut, he delivered a new album of classic favorites titled Life Journey. So why don’t we take an abbreviated look at Russell’s?

2015 Playwrights Festival

Village Theatre

Friday, March 6, through Sunday, March 15


Artistic Director Chris Jansen is doing something a bit different with the presentations in New Ground Theatre’s annual Playwrights Festival, running at the Village Theatre March 6 through 15. On two of those days, there’ll be a reading of a new, full-length play titled This Side Up, written by University of Iowa undergraduate Christopher “Kit” Grassi. On four of those days, there’ll be staged productions of five plays by five separate authors, each lasting between 10 and 15 minutes.

And in one of those plays, Sam Collier’s In My Mother’s Tongue Like Winter, actor Michael Carron will play a poetry-minded grolar bear.

Patrick Green and Jill Schwartz rehearse Love Stories featuring Romeo & JulietDance

Love Stories featuring Romeo & Juliet

Scottish Rite Cathedral

Friday, February 27, and Saturday, February 28, 7:30 p.m.


Ballet Quad Cities’ latest presentation in the company’s annual Love Stories series – being staged February 27 and 28 at Moline’s Scottish Rite Cathedral – is officially titled Love Stories featuring Romeo & Juliet. As love stories go, that’s an awfully powerful one. It’s also a pretty depressing one, considering that Romeo and Juliet, in the end, both die.

Of course, you know that. And Ballet Quad Cities’ Courtney Lyon knows you know that. And that’s why choreographer and BQC Artistic Director Lyon chose to do something unusual in her particular take on Shakespeare’s tale of star-crossed lovers: “I put the end of the ballet first.”
