Upcoming Performances at the New Hazlett Theater

Overexposed

Over Exposed
Part of the New Hazlett Theater CSA Performance Series
April 6  |  8PM

What are the experiences that define a life?  Over Exposed takes us on a hysterical, heart-wrenching journey of discovery.  This is more than an evening of dance.  This is a collection of the doubts, insecurities, everyday joys, and small victories that make up one woman’s life, told and presented to you from inside.

50 Years of Friends


50 Years of Friends
Presented by Johnny Angel and the Halos
April 8  |  Doors at 6PM, show at 7:30PM
Johnny Angel and the Halos are celebrating 50 years in music. Beginning as the Cordells in 1966, the faces have changed but the friendships and love of music have not. Former members will be appearing to perform and show their talents. You will see what has made this a very special band.


Israel Story
Presented by The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh
April 27  |  7PM
Inspired by This American Life, Israel Story is a live multi-media performance that shares stories about Israel and its diversity and culture.
When David Ben Gurion envisioned what Israel could be, he thought of diverse cultures, traditions, and backgrounds coming together to form a unique Israeli identity. With their unforgettable blend of storytelling, live music, and dazzling visuals, the Israel Story team sets out to discover how Ben Gurion’s dream became Israel’s modern reality. They ask, in their humanizing manner, whatever happened to that tantalizingly simple, yet intensely complicated notion of an Israeli “melting pot”?

Terell Stafford

Terell Stafford Quintet featuring Tim Warfield
Presented by Kente Arts Alliance
April 29  |  Doors at 7PM, show at 8PM

Terell Stafford, acclaimed trumpet player based in New York, has been hailed as “one of the great players of our time, a fabulous trumpet player” by piano legend McCoy Tyner. Stafford is recognized as an incredibly gifted and versatile player, he combines a deep love of melody with his own brand of spirited and adventurous lyricism. Stafford’s exceptionally expressive and well defined musical talent allows him to dance in and around the rich trumpet tradition of his predecessors while making his own inroads.

Since the mid-1990’s, Stafford has performed with groups such as Benny Golson’s Sextet, McCoy Tyner’s Sextet, Kenny Barron Quintet, Frank Wess Quintet, Jimmy Heath Quintet and Big Band, Jon Faddis Jazz Orchestra, Carnegie Hall Jazz Band and Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Alumni Band.
