Wednesday, April 20
Talk about an overachiever. Three Oscars, four Grammys, four Emmys, three Golden Globes and a Tony. Wednesday puts one of the most prolific entertainers in our midst. Accompanied by a single piano, Marvin Hamlisch will perform his well-known compositions for Bass Performance Hall audiences. The Post-Standard said of his live performances, "Hamlisch is not only a talented composer but also a natural comic." So he composes, wins amazing awards and makes people laugh? No fair. Now, some might think ol' Marvin is a show more suited to the older folks, and where the jokes are concerned, they may be right. But we're not passing up the opportunity to see tunes from A Chorus Line or the theme from The Sting performed live by the guy that wrote them. That's musical history from a musical genius. The hall is located at 525 Commerce St., Fort Worth. Tickets are $35 to $64. Call 1-877-212-4280.
