FRAN LEBOWITZ

Eccles Center for Performing Arts
Park City, UT

1750 Kearns Blvd.
Feb. 47:30pm

Fran Lebowitz, the satirist who has made a career out of being an acerbic observer of life as we know it, delivers a humorous evening of New Yorker-tinged cultural commentary. Her critiques, books, and acting (“Law and Order”) have kept her a vibrant – and opinionated – part of the arts scene for decades. Part of the Park City Institute's Main Stage Season.


CIRQUE ELOIZE 

Eccles Center for Performing Arts
Park City, UT

1750 Kearns Blvd.
Feb. 21 - 227:30pm

The return of Montreal-based Cirque Éloize to the Eccles Center means classic cirque arts magic: theatrics, dance, acrobatics, live music, and a little clowning. This time it’s coupled with ten-gallon hats and quick-on-the-draw humor. The troupe’s newest show “Saloon” delivers a head-turning spin on the wild west – with fiery fiddle bows and somersaulting gunslingers, pushing the physics of the human body and the stage space. Part of the Park City Institute's Main Stage season.
