Right now, it’s like a mirage on the horizon. A paradise seen in the distance, faintly visible after another long, hot summer. You may thirst for it and reach in vain, for as of now it remains beyond your grasp. But give it time, my dehydrated friend. Soon, the seasons will change. And come the fall, you can quench your thirst for more live performances… at The Paramount Theatre’s 2011-2012 season.
Legends and bold entertainers shine brightly upon the classic Paramount Theatre marquee.
Hilarious comedy that is sort of a two-for-one deal: Not only do you get Short, but the show will feature his alter ego, the delightfully annoying Jiminy Glick.
A story of truth, beauty, freedom and love. Why watch it? Because you can can can!
Unique shows and personalities for a city that keeps it weird.
This legendary and eclectic performer has sold millions of records. Experience his distinctive sound.
The affable yet acerbic Bourdain of Travel Channel’s “No Reservations” takes on Ripert, celebrated chef of New York’s Le Bernardin restaurant and Bravo TV’s “Top Chef.” This will be a dish best served cold.
One of New York’s hippest storytellers, The Moth has packed houses across the nation with his live stories (told without notes!) about people from all walks of life.
Offering entertainment for the entire family. Great for audiences young and old.
Buddy’s live show serves up fun and cakes!
An afternoon of stories, family fun, and critters. Lots of critters.
Canadian quintet who put on an energetic show. Their instruments are crafted from recycled materials such as scrap metal and even artillery shells! Together they create music that is far from being junk.
Ah, but there are still many more shows.
Composer and bandleader Bela Fleck has reunited his original Flecktones and brings them all to The Paramount. Also along for the ride, Bela’s signature banjo.
The Paramount tradition returns! Comedians Joe Sears and Jaston Williams bring their two-man show back for a tale of Christmas hijinks in the little town of Tuna, TX.
Yep. That John Waters. The director of Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, Cry-Baby and Serial Mom brings his offbeat humor to the stage in a one-man vaudeville act. It would be a dirty shame to miss it.
Another Paramount tradition returns for the holidays! Texas royalty on the country music scene, Willis and Robison bring warmth and joy in a show that has something for everyone.
A production of amazing choreography that blurs the line between individual performers. Sure to mesmerize audiences with their “sense of dance-troupe-as-organism” acts.
The Queen of Kids’ Music. Need I say more? You know what little members of the family to bring.
A powerful play performed by one of America’s oldest and most respected touring companies. Winner of a Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award for Best Play, it was also adapted into an Oscar nominated film in 2008.
What would a season be without David and his sardonic wit? There’s never a dull or artificial moment during his live performances. If you’ve never seen him, you owe it to yourself to attend. If you have seen him, you know you can’t wait to do it again.
