  • Bradley Backstage: The Bradley Jazz Collective

    We are thrilled to welcome back the very first Bradley Backstage act, The Bradley Jazz Collective! The band, comprised of Craig Bryan (drums), Al Hospers (bass), Mimi Rohlfing (vocals), Mike Sakash (saxophone), and Jed Wilson (piano), will be performing the music of Thelonious Monk in celebration of the year that would've marked his 100th birthday. Monk was one of the greatest composers of the 20th century. The late pianist wrote about 70 songs during his career — many of which have become standards, including the most recorded jazz composition of all time, "Round Midnight." Bradley Backstage concerts "flip" the theater and seat the audience on stage with the performers, creating a much more intimate and unforgettable live concert experience. The lobby and box office will be open at 6:30 pm.

Will she finish her paper and escape with her life before the school bell rings? A high-octane comedy that explores the rabbit hole of distraction we all go down everytime we go online.
