The 10th season of the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts features a mix of Broadway, vintage pop, and comedy.
"Unelectable You" cashes in on election year fever with a comedy review that skews and skewers both left and right. Comedian Louie Anderson, who stars in the FX series "Baskets", brings his stand-up show to the BCPA. Broadway is represented with "Annie," "Elf" and "Bye-Bye Birdie."
Nostalgia is a strong theme in the programming. The Beatles tribute band, American English, returns to the venue. The new season also features The Happy Together Tour, which includes a number of pop groups from the 60's, including The Turtles. "Rt. 66: The Musical Revue" spotlights oldies to pay tribute to the Mother Road, which runs thorough the Twin Cities.
The new season will be preceded by the Bloomington Beer Fest in June.
