Join Young Arts Patrons for the Regional Premier of Green Day's American Idiot. A two-time Tony Award-winning musical, based on Green Day’s Grammy award-winning multi-platinum album, this rock opera explores the lives of three young men as they struggle to find meaning in the post 9/11 world. Rolling Stone says that American Idiot“blows your mind, while it blows the roof off.”
Join Young Arts Patrons and New Memphis for a special outing to Hattiloo Theatre to see their new production, Simply Simone. This electric new revue based on the turbulent life and rich artistic legacy of the American musical icon, Nina Simone, is sure to be a hit with audiences everywhere. The score to Simply Simone crosses genres from gospel to blues to Broadway to rock and roll, and features definitive Simone classics.
We'll gather for a reception with wine and light appetizers before the show.
Thank you Hattiloo for hosting us!
