    Amy Schumer

      After postponing an earlier show because, frankly, her big- and small-screen careers have taken off, Amy Schumer will take the stage Saturday night at the Palace as one of the most successful comedians working today. Her Comedy Central show, Inside Amy Schumer, is a top-five cable hit, and she’s got a film she made [...]

    Postmodern Jukebox

      Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, Radiohead . . . even Bon Jovi! It seems there’s no contemporary (or classic-rock) hit that pianist Scott Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox wouldn’t consider transforming into vintage jazz, soul, Motown, country or doo-wop. Their videos have been viral sensations on the Internet, and they do it all [...]

    Evil Dead The Musical

      This Canadian show, based on Sam Raimi’s classic cinematic demon zombie chainsaw blood fests, proves once and for all that anything can be turned into a musical.

    Primus & the Chocolate Factory

      With the band’s definitive lineup—singer-bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander—back together once again, Primus are back on tour and ready to reconnect with their ever-faithful fans (and hopefully some curious newcomers as well). With a sound that defies labels (“alternative metal” and “funk metal” crop up frequently), Primus earned a [...]
  • Underneath

      In her short career, Albany- and Brooklyn-based writer-director Noelle Gentile has presented theatrical works addressing the problems of women veterans, climate change and workers’ rights.
