Lyric Stage presents The Majestic Unplugged
Enjoy splendid songs from the glory days of The Majestic Theatre, unamplified by electronics, in the magnificent acoustic space of this National landmark. Architect John Eberson, under the direction of Karl Hoblitzelle, designed The Majestic Theatre to be the preeminent vaudeville house of the southwest. Constructed as Interstate Amusement Company’s flagship theater, the $2 million Renaissance Revival style structure opened on April 11, 1921 to great fanfare.
The Majestic Unplugged will celebrate the wonderful sound of the renovated hall with an all-acoustic (no amplification) performance of some of the greatest music of the golden years of the theater, from its opening in 1921 to its closing in 1973. The show will feature songs from Show Boat to The Poseidon Adventure, including “Make Believe,” “My Man,” “The Trolley Song” and “The Morning After.”
Performers will include Cynthia Clawson, Christopher J. Deaton, Kristen Lassiter, Catherine Carpenter Cox, Daron Cockerell, Feleceia Benton, Max Swarner, Christine Cornish Smith, and Andy Baldwin.
