St. Petersburg, Fla. (Jan. 6, 2017) – The “Mahaffey on the Move” series continues with Palladium Theater performances by country music legend Bill Anderson Wednesday, April 5 at 7:30 p.m., and the smash Broadway comedy Defending the Caveman Saturday, April 8 at 8 p.m.
A member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1961, inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, Bill Anderson is one of the most popular and enduring entertainers of our time.
Known as “Whispering Bill,” a nickname hung on him years ago as a result of his breathy voice and his warm, soft approach to singing a country song, Anderson’s roster of unforgettable hits includes “City Lights,” “Still,” “Po’Folks,” “Mama Sang A Song,” “The Tips Of My Fingers,” “8X10” and many more.
Tickets, $29, $39 and $49, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. Bill Edwards Foundation for the Arts members can purchase tickets starting at noon today.
Rob Becker’s Defending the Caveman is the longest-running solo play in Broadway history. With hilarious insights on contemporary feminism, masculine sensitivity and the erogenous zone, the show mines the common themes in relationships that go straight through the funny bone and into the heart.
Seen and recommended by thousands of marriage and family therapists and counselors, for its humorous look at the inherent differences between the sexes, Defending the Caveman makes us laugh at ourselves, about all the ways that men and woman fight, laugh and love.
The Chicago Sun-Times calls Defending the Caveman “An outrageously funny and surprisingly sweet exploration of the gender gap!”
Tickets, $30, $39 and $50, go on sale at Friday at 10 a.m. Bill Edwards Foundation for the Arts members can purchase tickets starting at noon today.
