Priority list: New Jazz Kitchen series, DK dances Dylan, more

February 22, 2016

There's no shortage of choices for A&E events this weekend. Here's a starter list for the February winding-down week.

 “Voices of a Generation: The Folk/Rock Revolution”

Nick Owens and David Hochoy once again split the choreographic chores (as they did with 2014’s “Ray & Ella”) for this Dance Kaleidoscope tribute to the music of the 1960s. The times may have a' changed. Let's see if dance has as well.

Feb. 25-March 6  Indiana Repertory Theatre Details

“Americana Sundays”

The Jazz Kitchen launches a new monthly series focused on American roots styles including folk, country, bluegrass, and the blues, with storytelling in the mix. First up in the songwriters' circle: Frank Dean, Bill Price, Ralph Jeffers, Megan Hopkins, and Angie White. Singer/songwriter Frank Dean presents the Sunday night series from 6-9 p.m.

Feb. 28  The Jazz Kitchen Details

“Broadway’s Next Hit Musical”

The first half of this touring show is a parody of an award show, featuring improvised songs with titles suggested by the audience. The second half is a production of the musical that allegedly houses the winning song. Whatever happens, it has to be better than "Ghost: The Musical."

Named for the well-traveled route between Turkey and China, this group of world musicians celebrates and combines the music of those countries and those in between.  Feb. 27  Palladium  Details
