The Understudy - Oct 14 - Nov 2, 2014

The show must go on—even when everything seems to be going hilariously wrong. It’s the understudy rehearsal for a hit new Broadway play, but the set technician is high, the cocky movie star doesn’t understand the script, and the understudy is surprised to find that the stage manager is his jilted ex-fiancée. Backstage friction takes center stage in a biting comedy about art, celebrity, and the things we do for the business we love. Just another day in the life of an understudy!


Christian McBride Trio - October 17, 2014
It’s no surprise that Christian McBride is the most in-demand bassist of his generation. The tone that he elicits from an upright bass is one of jazz’s forthright pleasures, combining his musicianship with an innate ability to communicate his enthusiasm to an audience. McBride comes to the Berlind with his new trio and together the three promise an evening encompassing blues, standards, ballads, up-tempo songs, and jazz humor.

Bruce Hornsby - September 27, 2014
For over 25 years, Bruce Hornsby has been one of popular music’s true “quadruple threats” – as singer, songwriter, bandleader and pianist, selling more than 11 million recordings and picking up three Grammy awards along the way. An inveterate improviser of eclectic musical interests, Hornsby has successfully ventured into jazz, classical, bluegrass, and even electronica.
