Majestic Theatre

Jack Morgan

It's a big weekend with outstanding weather predicted. I've found that great music, free trees,  and Kinky Boots are on the horizon. First off, starting tonight, music from some of the biggest black entertainers of the recent past. The Carver Cultural Center's Teresa Vasquez-Romero:

"Etta James, Sarah Vaughn and Dinah Washington."

David Letterman returned to comedy at a Friday show in San Antonio, saying that retiring from Late Night before Donald Trump announced his presidential run was "the biggest mistake of my life."

He offered a brand-new Top Ten list, aimed directly at the Donald. Shots taken included:

10 - His toupee is actually the gopher in "Caddyshack."

If you’re looking to take a trip back in time, this weekend there’s a very good opportunity for you.  A Beatles tribute band is coming to San Antonio.

"This is Jim Irizarry.”

Jim plays and sings the role of John Lennon in the Beatles Tribute Band Rain. He describes what people who come will see.

“You’re going to see us go through all the different Beatle eras. We’re going to start with the Ed Sullivan Show, 1964.”

National Tour Disney’s Beauty and the Beast

It was a huge hit in the movie theater, in the Broadway Theater, and now it’s coming back to San Antonio.
If you’ve seen it, surely you remember this scene (click "listen" above to hear the scene).

"Ma chère mademoiselle! It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight. And now, we invite to relax, let us pull up a chair, as the dining room proudly presents: your dinner!"

That’s Patrick Pevehouse, who plays the iconic Lumiere in "Beauty and the Beast" and his return to San Antonio is delightfully coincidental.

I've probably had half a dozen people worriedly ask me, "What's going to happen to the Majestic after the Tobin opens?" So I decided to ask the person most likely to know if there any truth to the rumor that the Majestic Theatre will be closing down after the Tobin Center opens.

“No truth to that rumor, not at all," said Mike Rilley, who is the Majestic’s general manager.

“The Majestic’s got next year probably as much programming as we’ve ever had,” he said.

So I asked him to detail exactly who's coming to the Majestic.
