Momix - May 6, 2015
Momix has much in common with Pilobolus, another McCarter favorite, which should not be so surprising since both spring from the inventive universe of Moses Pendleton (one of Pilobolus’ original creators), one of the most imaginative beings on the planet. Moses continues to conjure up a world of surrealistic images by using props, lights, shadow, humor, and the human body in ever startling ways. Who knows at this point what he has in mind for his latest creation? We wouldn’t attempt to hazard a guess, other than to predict that it will involve his company of inspired vaudevillians, creating slapstick, science fiction, and improvisational surprise—often all at once.

Second City Does New Jersey! - May 16, 2015
The Second City is America’s leading brand in improv-based sketch comedy, with resident stages in both Chicago and Toronto. A comedy empire, its alumni include everyone from Mike Meyers to Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler. So get ready for Garden State-style hilarity when Paved & Confused exits the Turnpike toward Princeton. In sketches, songs, and its trademark improvisations, the Second City troupe has created customized sketches that take aim at all things Jersey, from the Meadowlands to the Boardwalk, politics to the Pine Barrens, casinos to Christie. Second City will have you laughing all the way down the shore.

An Evening of Storytelling with
Garrison Keillor
- May 18, 2015
If there’s one legend whose name is as close to a household word as you can get, it’s Garrison Keillor. His protean talent has embraced every possible genre, as author (22 books), story teller, poet, essayist, humorist, and most notably, radio personality—as the host of public radio’s beloved A Prairie Home Companion for 30 years.

Paul Taylor Dance Company - May 20, 2015
One of the great legacies in contemporary dance is the deep influence that Martha Graham had on Paul Taylor, who studied with Graham while a member of her company in the late 1950s. Subsequently, he established his own company which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. Genius fosters genius, and today, at 84 years old, Taylor remains the sole surviving member of the great 20th century choreographers. With over 140 witty, menacing, and joyful creations to date, he continues to amaze us with his inventiveness and poignancy—his creativity seems unabated.
