Stave off the post-holiday blues with some on-the-stage goodies this month.
In Tulsa, the PAC is abuzz. Kick things off with 1776; the show, which explores the founding of the United States, gets a feminist twist in this Theatre Tulsa version, where all the Founding Fathers are played by women. Don’t miss Tulsa Symphony’s first showcase of 2023 with Invigorating: Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5 on Jan. 14, featuring guest conductor Ottorino Respighi. And you can round out the month with Jesus Christ Superstar on Jan. 24-29, brought by Celebrity Attractions – which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
At the Civic Center Music Hall, the OKC Philharmonic brings two shows this month. The first, Nordic Soundscapes, runs Jan. 7, offering soothing tunes and a relaxed ambiance. The second, Disney in Concert, runs Jan. 27-28 with a variety of tunes from childhood memories. Stick around the Civic Center for The Book of Mormon, running Jan. 13-15 courtesy of OKC Broadway. Edmondites have their share of goodies at the Armstrong Auditorium, including The Five Browns on Jan. 12 and Bush, Marshall, Meyer and Meyer on Jan. 31.
Around the state, you can enjoy Gaslight Theatre’s presentation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland from Jan. 21-29 in Enid, as well as a performance from Nilaja Sun on Jan. 26 at the Davis-Waldorf Performing Arts Center in Chickasha.
