LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE
June 5-7
Fridays and Saturday ~ 8pm
Sunday ~ 2pm Matinee
$20 General ~ Discounts apply for Seniors, Children and Stockton Students (with ID)

By Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, based on the book by Ilene Beckerman

Tales of women, clothes and memory covering all the important subjects—mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses and why we only wear black. Based on the bestselling book by Ilene Beckerman. "Funny, compelling…Brought down the house…but [the play] is not a comedy: A story about black cowboy boots becomes a sad tale of being underappreciated in a relationship; a tale of two women shopping for their wedding outfits ends bittersweetly; and the recollection of a new bra is a quiet testament to a women's search for dignity while undergoing treatment for breast cancer." —NY Times. "So funny and so powerful; so dear and sweet; so remindful of our female wiles, our worries, our insecurities, our remembrances of mother, father, sisters, brothers, lovers—I think it can't miss." —WowOwow.com. From Dramatists Play Service

The world's longest running play! Now celebrating its Diamond Anniversary in its 60th year! A group of strangers is stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, and the suspicions in their minds nearly wreck their perfect marriage. Others are a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, when the jurist is killed. Two down, and one to go. To get to the rationale of the murderer's pattern, the policeman probes the background of everyone present, and rattles a lot of skeletons. Another famous Agatha Christie switch finish! Chalk up another superb intrigue for the foremost mystery writer of her time. From Samuel French Play Service

DANTE HALL THEATER CONCERT SERIES
DAVE DAMIANI AND THE NO VACANCY ORCHESTRA
August 22nd ~ 8pm
$40 General ~ Discounts apply for Seniors, Children and Stockton Students (with ID)

GRAMMY WINNER and American Songbook Icon - Steve Tyrell makes his return to the Jersey shore for a special Frank Sinatra 100th Birthday Tribute. Steve has been touring the country celebrating the release of his new album “That Lovin’ Feeling” that celebrates the great writers from the Brill Building in New York City.  “That Lovin’ Feeling” debuted at # 5 on the Billboard Jazz Charts.  With the Frank Sinatra Centennial in full swing, Steve has decided to come to one of the staples of the Sinatra legacy, Atlantic City, NJ. 

 

Performing along side with Steve Tyrell will be South Jersey native, Dave Damiani who’s new CD “Midlife Crisis” along with Steve Tyrell’s “That Lovin’ Feeling” will be getting serious Grammy consideration. Paying tribute to Frank Sinatra with this exciting concert will certainly be a night to regain the magic here in Atlantic City.  

 

“These smaller venues are what I miss from Atlantic City.  I grew up in South Jersey and saw Sinatra at the Sands with my father in 1995.  It was intimate, it was classy, and it was sexy.  We are bringing that back to the Jersey Shore,” says Dave Damiani.  “There are some great shore towns in South Jersey, but let’s not forget what started it all (as far as entertainment goes), Atlantic City is still the place to be and we couldn’t be happier or more excited to be at Dante Hall.”

 

Steve Tyrell's work as a producer won him a Grammy Rod Stewart’s American Songbook Album.  His career as a vocalist was launched in 1991 when he recorded “The Way You Look Tonight” for the Nancy Meyer’s film Father of the Bride with Steve Martin.  Steve has had a career spanning over 5 decades in the music business working with people such as Burt Bacharach, B.J. Thomas, Dionne Warwick, Linda Ronstadt, Rod Stewart and countless others.  

 

Dave Damiani has been making a considerable name for himself on the Los Angeles music scene.  This former singing waiter at Miceli's Italian Restaurant in Los Angeles has turned slinging pizza & pasta into quite a career in music.  His 17-piece No Vacancy Orchestra has been taking Los Angeles by storm.  With musicians in his band that have made names for themselves playing for acts such as:  Michael Buble', Steve Tyrell, Poncho Sanchez, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Natalie Cole, Justin Timberlake, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Leftover Cuties and many more, the No Vacancy Orchestra has quickly become one of the hottest jazz tickets on the West Coast.  
In a recent show at The Typhoon Restaurant and jazz venue in Santa Monica, California, Damiani gained the attention of a CBS music supervisor and booked an on screen role on the new hit drama Vegas starring Michael Chiklis and Dennis Quaid.  The episode will air on CBS Tuesday February 19th, 2013 at 10PM.  He will be on performing his songs on screen for about 2-3 minutes and the music is a major part of the story line.  CBS has done some restructuring of the show and is looking to include more music acts inside of theSavoy Casino.
