Called “an upbeat heroine of contemporary Afro-pop” by the New York Times, Grammy Award-winning singer, dancer, and songwriter Angélique Kidjo returns to the Flynn Center with musical connections that link every part of the world—Afro-funk, reggae, samba, salsa, gospel, jazz, Zairean rhumba, zouk, and makossa.

Jane Comfort and Company’s Faith Healing, inspired by Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie will have two performances in FlynnSpace, Thursday and Friday, April 7 and 8.
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, the two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning, fast-paced whodunit that features nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters, an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance (Friday, May 13).

The Emmy-Award winning science show starring Paul Zaloom, Beakman on the Brain (Saturday, May 7).
