Upcoming events at Lincoln's own Lied Center for Performing Arts

The Lied Center's Artistic Director, Ann Chang, makes sure that each season "represents all the genres, Classical, family, dance, Jazz, Broadway, theater, and popular, as well as making sure that they are all programmed well with quality and class.” As the Lied Center opens its 22nd season in Lincoln, all the genres are present and there is surely something to please everyone.
The first show is the fast-selling, and already sold-out, "Bill Cosby - Live at the Lied," wherein famed comedian Bill Cosby comes to Lincoln. Lincolnites are planning to turn out in huge numbers to greet this legend whose life lessons and laughs entertained families for years through "The Cosby Show." Bill Cosby is set to come to the Lied Center on October 7th, at 7:30pm.

In the dance category, Lincoln can see Pilobolus Dance Theatre on October 12th, Moulin Rouge - The Ballet will come on April 1st, and Ragamala will bring their dance to Lincoln on April 11th.

Family and theater shows include Local Wonders from Nebraska's own U.S. Poet Laureate, Ted Kooser, Tomas Kubinek, The Shape of a Girl, The Ugly Duckling, and more. While Broadway shows include Beauty and the Beast, Young Frankenstein, and MAMMA MIA!

Jazz musicians and groups include the Turtle Island Quartet, Tiempo Libre, and the SFJAZZ COLLECTIVE - The Music of Stevie Wonder featuring some of the greatest Jazz musicians of today... and tomorrow.
Classical musicians coming to the Lied Center inlude the Munich Symphony Orchestra, Kathryn Stott, and the legendary, Itzhak Perlman.
