Kevin James

KEVIN JAMES, producer, co-writer, and star of the hit comedies Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009) and Zookeeper (2011) can be seen this October in his latest film, Here Comes The Boom.  James also starred in Columbia Pictures’ blockbuster Grown Ups (2010) along with Adam Sandler; previously, James and Sandler worked together on I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007).
James broke into the film world in 2005 in Columbia Pictures’ Hitch starring opposite Will Smith, but his comedy career started well before that as a stand-up on the Long Island comedy scene.  After being discovered at the 1996 Montreal Comedy Festival, he signed a network development deal to create his own sitcom.

The King of Queens, which premiered in 1998, ran for nine seasons on CBS with James starring and executive producing, and it garnered him an Emmy nomination in 2006 for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.  The show concluded its run in 2007 but continues to air daily in syndication across the country and around the world.

In 2001, James brought his stand-up act to TV with Sweat the Small Stuff, a one-hour special for Comedy Central.  In 2005, Kevin James and Ray Romano executive produced and starred in the HBO Sports Special Making the Cut: The Road to Pebble Beach; a documentary about the Pebble Beach Pro Am Golf Tournament that was nominated for a Sports Emmy.

Aside from his on-camera work, James’s voice has been featured in the animated films Barnyard (2006) for Nick Movies, as well as Monster House (2006) and the upcoming Hotel Transylvania (2012) for Sony Pictures Animation.

Red Green: How to do Everything Tour

RED GREEN

“HOW TO DO EVERYTHING” TOUR

A BRAND NEW SHOW – FROM THE SAME OLD GUY!

After a successful run of 139 shows throughout Canada and the USA on his “Wit and Wisdom Tour”, Red Green is back in theaters across North America in 2014 with a brand new show – How To Do Everything – from the man that should know!

Red Green, Canada’s foremost handyman, who became famous for such things as duct tape, Possum Lodge, and his own unique style of humor and wisdom now shares his thoughts on “How to do everything”.  After establishing himself in fifteen seasons of his enormously popular TV show as one of the world’s handiest men, he now shows there is no limit to his specialized knowledge and advice.

“When all else fails, play dead!”

“Never stand between electricity, and where it wants to go!”

“Never insult your surgeon, until after the operation!

“In an argument, the big guy with the chain saw is always right”.

 

 

An evening with Red Green is always an evening of advice and laughter. Be there to experience it in person!

An Evening with The Manhattans featuring Gerald Alston & Blue Lovett

The Manhattans are a popular American R&B vocal group with a string of hit records spanning five decades. They will be performing their GRAMMY® Award-winning hit Kiss and Say Goodbye and Shining Star live at the Weinberg Center for the Arts on October 4, 2014 at 8 PM.

THE MANHATTANS were originally: Winfred “Blue” Lovett, Richard Taylor, Kenny Kelley, George “Smitty” Smith and Sonny Bivins. Blue and Smitty were out front as the group’s strong lead singers. Blue was also the group leader and an outstanding songwriter whose compositions with producer Joe Evans gave the group a string of hits on Carnival Records during the mid-1960s.

In the fall of 1970, Gerald  Alston, whose style paid homage to the legendary Sam Cooke took over as lead  singer, replacing Smith. More a pop singer than either Lovett or Smith, Alston’s incorporation into the group enabled THE MANHATTANS to break out of their mold as ”doo-woppers” and achieve major national success on Starday/King Records with a Teddy Randazzo love song entitled “A Million To One“. In 1972, Blue Lovett’s “One Life To Live” reached the top 20 R&B charts.

With Alston handling all lead vocals and Lovett providing smooth spoken introductions, THE MANHATTANS  moved to Columbia Records in 1973 producing a string of hit ballads including, “There’s No Me Without You“, “We  Never Danced To A Love Song” and “Hurt.” The most notable of these ballads was Blue Lovett’s “Kiss And Say Goodbye“, a platinum-selling #1 pop and R&B hit in 1976. In that same year, THE MANHATTANS teamed up once again with producer Randazzo to record “Feels So Good“, “You’re My Life” and “There’s No Good In Goodbye“.

In 1977, they performed at President Jimmy Carter’s Inaugural Ball and since then have received their share of platinum and gold singles, albums, and  other industry kudos; most notably a 1980 GRAMMY® Award for “Shining Star” written and  produced by Leo Graham.

With their 30th anniversary approaching in 1994, it was the perfect time to reunite. So, along with new members Troy May and David Tyson, a reunion tour was born. On February 25, 1999 THE MANHATTANS were inducted into the Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame. In 2003, they released their first studio album in fifteen years featuring the beautiful ballad “Turn Out The Stars” which became one of the year’s best songs.

On August 15, 2012, THE MANHATTANS celebrated their 50th anniversary.

ATTENTION: if you are purchasing for this Event on Saturday morning 04/12/14, please read the following carefully:

1)      If you have ANY special needs – walkers, wheelchairs, vision impairment, etc. – you MUST contact the box office at 301-600-2828 for seating accommodations.

2)      The UPSTAIRS Seating is not available for these performances.

3)      There are additional fees when purchasing online or by phone. These fees are ONLINE = $1.75 per ticket + $5 processing fee for your order / PHONE = $5 processing fee for your order.

4)      Please make certain you are purchasing for the CORRECT show.  There are four shows and exchanges can be difficult due to limited availability.

 

BUYING ONLINE VS. BUYING IN-PERSON

ONLINE:   Due to the high demand of ticket sales for these performances on their on-sale date, our ticketing software company (VENDINI) MAY enact a “crowd control” system.  Once there is a high enough demand, this policy will place you essentially in a line and will inform you of how many patrons are in front of you online.  If you attempt to back out of the transaction you are in, this policy will then move you to the back of the line.  Please remain patient – no patron can move any faster than what the system will allow. Also, given the high demand, you MAY NOT be offered a “pick your own seat” option.  This option is ONLY valid online when the sales demand is BELOW a certain level of demand.  The system will offer you the best seating available (i.e. closest to the stage) for the quantity you have requested.

IN-PERSON:   Please make certain you know many seats you require for each show prior to approaching the counter.  We CANNOT perform exchanges that morning (from 9 AM until 11 AM).  We also ask that you do not use cell phones in line while waiting to make you purchase.  You may NOT ask the box office staff for ticket purchases made online to be printed and picked up on that Saturday UNTIL 11 AM.  Seating availability goes very quickly because online sales are happening at the same time as sales at the box office.

Please call the Box Office for any special needs you may have, or if you are experiencing problems with you online purchases.  301-600-2828
