Artist Boney James is dressed in all black wearing a hat as he sits on a wooden box with his hands folded.

Four- time GRAMMY nominee and multi-platinum Saxophonist Boney James will release his new album Solid on April 17, 2020. Solid is Boney's seventeenth album and the follow-up to his smash 2017 release Honestly, his eleventh #1 Billboard Contemporary Jazz Album.

One of the most successful instrumental artists of our time, Boney James has accumulated four RIAA Gold records with career sales topping three million units. James continues to defy genres; A two time NAACP Award nominee, a Soul Train Award winner and named one of the Top 3 Billboard Contemporary Jazz Artists of the Decade.

Boney explains, “The word Solid means a number of different things. There’s a solid musical groove and relationships can be solid—someone that stays by your side and never folds no matter what. That really resonates. Similar to Honestly, this music is a reaction to how stressful the world feels these days. Music is a respite, and this new music really connects on that level for me.”

Por qué los hombres aman a las cabronas - Basada en el libro de Sherry Argov.

Nadie había escrito un libro como este sobre relaciones. Lleva la sátira a otro nivel. No solo es cómico, sino muy real. Está lleno de “rebanadas de humor de la vida diaria que cubren todo lo que frustran a las mujeres sobre los hombres”. Sherry Argov demuestra en esta obra el camino para perder el miedo, ser independiente, segura de ti y de una forma divertida alcanzar lo que deseas: no más sufrimiento, ni cocinarle para conquistarlo, ni quejarte, ni sacrificar tu propia vida para que el hombre caiga rendido a tus pies y para que tu seas en lo único en que el piense. No te conviertas en el tapete de nadie.

Protagonizada por: Aracely Arámbula, Gabriel Soto y Anastasia Acosta

Producida por: Rubén Lara 

Dirección: Abril Mayett

The image is divided in half from top to bottom. The left features a mans face with "Men are From Mars" on a black background and the right shows a woman's face and reads "Women are From Venus" on a white background.

The Off-Broadway hit comedy Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE!, is a one-man fusion of theatre and stand-up, and is a light-hearted theatrical comedy based on the New York Times #1 best-selling book of the last decade by John Gray.

Moving swiftly through a series of vignettes, the show covers everything from dating and marriage to the bedroom.  This hysterical show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on stage. Sexy and fast paced, this show is definitely for adults, but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids! 

When Mars and Venus collide, the adventures are earth-shatteringly hysterical. It's a great recipe for a date night out: a little storytelling blended with some comedy and a dash of sage wisdom from the book. A delicious evening of entertainment!

Based on the hilarious hit film, 9 TO 5 is an outrageous, 1980’s era revenge story of friendship and female empowerment.

With a high-energy, huge-hearted score by the iconic Dolly Parton, 9 TO 5 is about finally getting credit…and getting even.

NCO re-opens with a concert performance of Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, a shining story of freedom and love. Florestan is a political prisoner. His wife, Leonore, disguises herself as a man – named “Fidelio” – and takes a job in the prison, hoping to find a way to free him while facing great danger along the way.  This tale of heroism is an ode to love’s triumph over tyranny, and is uniquely suited to Beethoven’s spirited and soulful voice.

Now after a year off the road, Tomlinson is set to return to the stage with her new Deal With It Tour. One of the youngest comedians to headline theaters in decades, joining the likes of Eddie Murphy and Dave Chappelle, Tomlinson says of the new tour, “This hour is definitely darker and more personal – ‘Quarter Life Crisis’ was about being frustrated with where you’re at in life and this new material is about taking a hard look at who you are and how you got that way.”

Your trip to Paris begins when Puccini’s La bohème returns to the NCO stage! Follow the love of the poet Rodolfo and the seamstress Mimi from their first meeting on Christmas Eve through all the ups and downs of their relationship. No composer was better at creating atmosphere than Puccini, and none had a style better suited to convey the waves of emotion that go along with a new romance.  The combination makes for an indelible tale of young love in the City of Lights.
