 David Ives’ “All in the Timing”will kickoff AHS Drama’s official return to live performances at the Linda M. Byrnes Performing Arts Center.   “All in the Timing” is a series of five one-act comedies that explore love, near misses and scientific theory in a distinctly comic light.  The shows will be performed without masks to a limited capacity of 215 lucky patrons. Following the latest COVID protocols, the actors have been screened, tested and cleared for performance.  According to Mr. Moberly, “Working closely with the ASD COVID response team has allowed us to present live performances.  As a director, my students and I have been dreaming of this day since March of 2020, when we had to quickly shut down our last production. We’ve had to adapt how we do things but WITH OUR RETURN TO LIVE PERFORMANCES-the end result is simply sublime.”   Make plans now for 4 performances November 5,6,12 and 13th at 7pm.  All tickets are sold online ONLY at www.byrnesperformingarts.org and will not be available for sale at the door.  With the new limited seating capacity, tickets will go quickly, so purchase them ASAP.

 In SURE THING, two people meet in a cafe and find their way through a conversational minefield as an offstage bell interrupts their false starts, gaffes, and faux pas on the way to falling in love. WORDS, WORDS, WORDS recalls the philosophical adage that three monkeys typing into infinity will sooner or later produce Hamlet and asks: What would monkeys talk about at their typewriters? THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE brings together Dawn, a young woman with a stutter, and Don, the creator and teacher of Unamunda, a wild comic language. Their lesson sends them off into a dazzling display of hysterical verbal pyrotechnics—and, of course, true love.  Next, THE PHILADELPHIA presents a young man in a restaurant who has fallen into “a Philadelphia,” a Twilight Zone-like state in which he cannot get anything he asks for. Finally, VARIATIONS ON THE DEATH OF TROTSKY shows us the Russian revolutionary on the day of his demise, desperately trying to cope with the mountain-climber’s axe he’s discovered in his head. Playwright David Ives is the winner of the John Gassner Playwriting Award. This critically acclaimed, award-winning evening of comedies combines wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun.

11/20 - Arlington Arts Council Presents Curtis Salgado

After making a splash at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center in 2018 and postponing due to Covid in 2020, Curtis Salgado returns this year for the 8th annual Legends of the Blues concert in the BPAC at Arlington High School. 

Born in Eugene, Oregon, Salgado was active in the Portland blues scene by his early 20s during the 1970s as co-leader of the Robert Cray Band. In 1977 he was discovered by John Belushi and he mentored Belushi on the blues for the movie The Blues Brothers. After decades of performances at blues festivals across the nation, his Alligator Records debut in 2012, Soul Shot was released to widespread critical acclaim. 

In 2016, The Beautiful Lowdown featured 11 original songs and Rough Cut in 2018 was a potent, stripped-down acoustic album with guitarist Alan Hager. 

The albums collectively earned Salgado multiple Blues Music Awards—for B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year, Soul Blues Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Soul Blues Male Artist Of The Year. 

According to Blues Revue, Salgado’s performances “start at excellent before segueing into goose bumps, ecstasy, and finally nirvana.” 

On his 2020 release, Damage Control, the hard-hitting songs just keep on coming, Salgado says.

Opening with local legends
The show opens with our local legends, Randy Norris and Jeff Nicely, 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 20, at Byrnes Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $25 at Brown Paper Tickets (fees apply), or with no fees at Flowers by George, 335 N. Olympic Ave. Tickets will be available at the door while supplies last. BPAC is located at 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd.
Thanks to financial support from a city of Arlington Lodging Tax Grant for Tourism, proceeds from the concert benefit the Arlington Arts Council general operating fund.
