Upcoming Shows for the Artist Series’ 48th Season
The Artist Series, Jacksonville’s major presenter of Broadway, Concert and Variety, Off Broadway, and International shows, kicks off its 48th season this fall. What began as a small program to make the arts more available to students at the local community college, now Florida State College at Jacksonville, has expanded into a well-rounded performing arts program that is available to the entire community. The Artist Series utilizes some of Jacksonville’s best entertainment venues, such as the Times-Union Center and Florida State College’s South Campus’ Wilson Center for the Arts.
DAVID SEDARIS: Monday, October 28th, 7:30PM, Times-Union Center’s Jacoby Hall. Tickets on sale now!
Tweaking the familiar until it warps; DAVID SEDARIS mines poignant comedy from his peculiar childhood in North Carolina, his bizarre career path, and his move with his lover to France. Including his last releases, the New York Times’ Bestselling books, When You Are Engulfed in Flames and Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary, DAVID SEDARIS’ wickedly witty observations of the ordinary-bizarre is always sure to deliver insights and laughs. His sardonic humor and incisive social critique have made him one of NPR’s most popular and humorous commentators. On April 23, 2013, SEDARIS released his newest highly anticipated book entitled Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls.
