Bad Plus

The Bad Plus
Saturday, January 24
8:00 pm
$28 (reg. $32)
Berklee Performance Center, Boston, MA
Purchase by December 31

Widely heralded for its innovative reworkings of rock, indie, electronica, and modernist classical music, the Bad Plus now turns to Ornette Coleman's landmark 1972 album Science Fiction to honor the great master of free jazz. Bassist Reid Anderson, pianist Ethan Iverson, and drummer David King pay tribute to Coleman by boldly interpreting Science Fiction song for song, with help from an esteemed horn section of fine improvisers including Tim Berne, alto saxophone, Ron Miles, trumpet; and Sam Newsome, soprano saxophone. "By any standard, jazz or otherwise, this is mighty moving music . . . hot players with hard-rock hearts" (Rolling Stone). "Better than anyone at mixing the sensibilities of post-60's jazz and indie rock" (The New York Times).

Kinky Boots tells the story of Charlie Price, a man who has reluctantly inherited his father's nearly bankrupt shoe factory. Trying to live up to his father's legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible… and Lola turns out to be the one person who can help Charlie become the man he's meant to be. Together they discover that when you change your mind about someone, you can change your whole world. Book by Harvey Fierstein.
