BOBBY'S LAST CRUSADE"
by DAVID ARROW
What if Robert F. Kennedy, brother and adviser to a President and junior Senator from New York, had never been assassinated? Would he have gone on to win the White House in 1968 and to bring our troops home from Vietnam? Would he have been the voice of moral clarity to bind Americans together? David Arrow’s virtuoso performance gives us 90 minutes to dream … of what might have been.

"HEART LIKE A WHEEL:
A TRIBUTE TO THE MUSIC OF LINDA RONSTADT"
starring RITA HARVEY
In this musical tribute to Linda Ronstadt, hear the timeless classics that make her one of America's most beloved performers ("You're No Good," "Blue Bayou," "When Will I Be Loved," "Desperado," "Heat Wave," among others) -- and the stories behind the songs -- as performed by Rita Harvey, Broadway star of "Phantom of the Opera" and "Fiddler on the Roof."
For Regina Carter, recipient of a MacArthur Genius Fellowship and Doris Duke Artist Award, the violin isn't simply a musical instrument, but a passport to a myriad of cultures and sounds. Dubbed "the finest jazz violinist of her generation" by The New York Times, she draws upon a wide range of musical influences, including Motown, Afro-Cuban, swing, bebop, folk and spirituals, and her repertoire ranges from "After a Dream" to "Chattanooga Choo Choo."
