Postfontaine Presents: Ingrid Michaelson: The Dramatic Tour to Salt Lake City this October 14th! Don't miss her at The Union Event Center with very special guest Maddie Poppe.

Pop singer songwriter Ingrid Michaelson today announced a string of special club dates, The Dramatic Tour, in support of her new album, Stranger Songs. The album, out June 28 and now available for pre-order here, was inspired by Netflix’s pop culture phenomenon Stranger Things and its release will immediately precede the show’s third season premiere on July 4. Earlier this month, the pop star debuted the flirty, palpitating single, “Missing You” -- which quickly became her first-ever #1 most-added single at Hot AC radio and is racing up that chart – currently at #34 and a Greatest Gainer in its second week. “Missing You” is available to stream/download here.
The Dramatic Tour will make stops throughout the country, including Chicago’s Vic Theatre, Roseland Theater in Portland, The Fillmore in San Francisco, Los Angeles’ The Wiltern and two nights at the newly reopened Webster Hall in Michaelson’s hometown of New York. Tickets to most of these special club dates, as well as a limited number of exclusive VIP packages, will be available to the public starting Friday, May 31 at 10am local time through IngridMichaelson.com.
After four Top 20 albums, platinum singles, and countless song placements in everything from Grey’s Anatomy to a Google ad – all released independently on her own Cabin 24 Records – Michaelson found herself at a bit of creative standstill, adrift and seeking inspiration. The pop singer-songwriter found it again in an unexpected place, the throwback sci-fi/horror drama Stranger Things.
“I’ve already made seven records, I have a lot to say. But I’ve said it so much from the brain and mind and soul of Ingrid Michaelson - I wanted to create something through a different lens,” shared the singer-songwriter. “There’s something about Stranger Things that’s really comforting, it brings me back to my childhood. It’s the best kind of escapism and I find myself seeking that now more than ever. I took inspiration from the show and the characters and all these ideas started to come to me. Every song on the record includes a reference from the show, some more specific than others, but all of the themes are universal – these are feelings everyone has.”
The in-demand writer has been busy. The exploration of nostalgia and how love and loss play with our memory has been driving a creative renaissance for Michaelson. Earlier this year it was announced that she will develop the new musical adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ best-selling novel, The Notebook. An achingly tender story about the enduring power of love, The Notebook was best-selling author Nicholas Sparks' first published novel (in 1996). It was on The New York Times Best Seller list in its first week of release and stayed a hardcover best seller for more than a year. An award-winning film version of The Notebook directed by Nick Cassavetes was released in 2004, starring Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams, James Garner and Gena Rowlands.

This show follows the story of the monstrous Adams Clan as they attempt to outwit a greedy oil baroness, Mrs. Measley, who is intent on destroying their home to get at the oil underneath. The colorful characters include the wacky inventor, Groucho, his adoringly morbid wife, Cruella, and a wise-cracking, disembodied head named Bob. When the evil Mrs. Measley sends her son, Horace, undercover to spy on the Adams, he falls head over heels in love with their Frankstein-esque daughter, Dementia. Things get even more complicated when Horace's overbearing fiancé, Heather, learns of their love and, vowing revenge, teams up with Mrs. Measley. Will Horace and Dementia find reanimated romance together? Will the Adams be able to keep their happy haunted home? Comedy, romance, and adventure are all on the docket for this delightful send up of the beloved franchise, as well as topical humor torn from today’s headlines.

The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun! Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a musical thriller with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler. The musical is based on the 1973 play Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street by Christopher Bond.

The Hurricane Valley Theatrical Company and The City of Hurricane are pleased to announce their fall show Into The Woods.

Tickets are $15, General Admission seating. www.hurricanetheatrical.com or call Debbie 435-668-9753. SYNOPSIS “Be careful what you wish for” seems to be the ongoing theme in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Brothers Grimm inspired musical, Into the Woods. The story follows The Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to go the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give some milk. When the Baker and his wife are visited by the neighborhood witch, who reveals to them that she placed a curse on their family, the two set off on a journey into the woods to reverse the curse. Also in the woods, we meet Little Red, who is trying to visit her grandmother, the Wolf who loves tasty little girls, the Witch’s daughter Rapunzel, and the Princes chasing after their loves. By the end of Act I, everyone has gotten their wish and will seemingly live happily ever after. But in Act II, when Jack’s beanstalk brings them a visit from an angry Giant, we see how the consequences of their actions haunt them in disastrous ways. The community must come together to save each other and their kingdom, but sacrifices must be made.
