There is plenty going down at the Smith Center this weekend.

Betty Buckley Starring in “Ah, Men! The Boys of Broadway” on November 15-17, 7:00pm, November 18, 3:00pm “features men’s songs from Broadway shows that Buckley has always wanted to sing, including numbers from Sweeney Todd, West Side Story, Guys and Dolls, Pippin, The Fantasticks and more. The centerpiece of the show is “A Hymn to Her,” a rewrite of My Fair Lady’s “A Hymn to Him” in which Henry Higgins asks “Why Can’t a Woman be More Like A Man?” The prolific singer reverses the question in a witty retort complete with musical references to iconic male Broadway roles including Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof, Harold Hill in A Musical Man and Jean Val Jean in Les Miserables.”

I Know I Came In Here For Something on November 17, 2:00pm & 7:00pm “the smash New York summer theater hit has audiences raving, laughing and calling this show the best show about aging. Dr. Carole Altman and the Gateway Arts Foundation.org bring this hilarious musical comedy revue to the Smith Center-Troesh Theater.”

Las Vegas Philharmonic – An American Portrait happens on November 17, 8:00pm “The Las Vegas Philharmonic offers a rich cornucopia of American music this Thanksgiving season. Aaron Copland captured the American spirit with his stirring Fanfare for the Common Man and arrangements of American folk songs. This Fanfare is closely connected to The Smith Center, represented in the vibrant Symphony Park sculpture and Reynolds Hall foyer painting by local artist Tim Bavington. This will be the first performance of the work in Reynolds Hall. Tony Hsieh—CEO of Zappos.com, best-selling New York Times author and Las Vegas resident—narrates Copland’s iconic musical portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Leonard Bernstein’s infectious dance rhythms in the film West Side Story captured the music of New York immigrants as we celebrate the musical spirit of America at Thanksgiving time”.
