The Understudy - Oct 14 - Nov 2, 2014

Visit The Understudy website

The show must go on—even when everything seems to be going hilariously wrong. It’s the understudy rehearsal for a hit new Broadway play, but the set technician is high, the cocky movie star doesn’t understand the script, and the understudy is surprised to find that the stage manager is his jilted ex-fiancée. Backstage friction takes center stage in a biting comedy about art, celebrity, and the things we do for the business we love. Just another day in the life of an understudy!

Cécile McLorin Salvant - October 26, 2014
The sellout sensation of last year’s jazz season, Cécile McLorin Salvant, returns to the Berlind, so here’s another chance to be blown away by the jazz prodigy already hailed as the “next big thing.” Cecile’s landmark year saw the release of her debut CD, WomanChild, plus a Grammy nomination, and critical acclaim exceeding mere hyperbole. She puts original, idiosyncratic, and virtuosic force on old repertory, some of it from the high era of the Great American Songbook, some of it older than jazz itself.

Rosanne Cash - November 6, 2014
The latest CD from the legendary Rosanne Cash, The River & the Thread, resembles its predecessors (Black Cadillac, The List) in exploring family, heritage, place and time, resonating with her complex and soulful relationship to the American south, where her musical and family legacy is firmly rooted. Her older recordings, encompass country, rock, roots and pop influences, and have earned her 12 Grammy nominations and 11 number one singles.

Martha Graham Dance Company - November 5, 2014
Martha Graham founded contemporary dance in this country as we know it today, and together with Picasso, Stravinsky, and Balanchine, stands as one of the true artistic giants of the 20th century. Although the company she founded in 1926 is still going strong, it hasn’t been to McCarter in a decade, so we are long overdue! In the course of the 181 works she created, Graham conveyed the depth of human emotion by creating her own vocabulary of movement which remains unique to the company of dancers who continue to carry the torch.
