Join the nationally known Broadway host on SiriusXM radio, Seth Rudetsky, as he presents his new touring one-man show SETH'S BIG FAT BROADWAY. Spend some time with Seth and his private video/audio collection and you won't believe your eyes/ears.

Seth's enthusiasm for superior vocal talent and his love of theater is infectious and his on-stage delivery never fails to have audiences across the country laughing up a storm. As the Boston Globe wrote, "it's a hell of a lot of fun!" Performances are October 4 and 5 in Vogel Hall and single tickets are on sale now.

Get ready to cook up some music at The Cooke Book- The Music of Sam Cooke. The Music of Sam Cooke is a celebration of Cooke's greatest hits and some lesser known gems.
