CANCELED April 4, 2020: John Davidson 8:00 p.m. $20

We had to cancel this show due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to reschedule but can’t make an plans at this time. Stay home and stay safe!

You may remember John Davidson from his guest hosting duties on The Tonight Show, or hosting Hollywood Squares, That’s Incredible, or $100,000 Pyramid. Or movies (The Happiest Millionaire, Edward Scissorhands). Or his performances on Broadway (Oklahoma, State Fair, and more recently in touring productions of Wicked and Finding Neverland).

But now in his 70s and not slowing down, John returns to his favorite role: troubadour.

His solo show features a mixture of covers and original tunes, show biz stories from 50+ years in the business, all accompanied by his own guitar, banjo and sundry other instruments. John delivers an intimate, energetic evening of humor, inspiration, and songs both old and new.

A recent Broadway World review said:

“John Davidson is today’s Will Rogers. He spends 60 or 70 minutes on stage, all alone. OH. MY. GOSH. The voice, the voice, the voice. He can sigh the most sweetly silent of ballads and then belt for the back row of the MUNY in St. Louis. John Davidson is a musical marvel. The show itself is perfectly constructed and presented…The evening is full to the brim with his commentary on life, politics, and lessons learned as he has aged. You don’t need to know who John Davidson is to enjoy his show. You only need to know how to feel. Making you feel, through storytelling, musical or otherwise, is what John Davidson was born to do.”
