La Santa Cecilia
With a captivating voice that sings about love, loss, and every day struggles, La Santa Cecilia has become the voice of a new bicultural generation in the United States, fully immersed in modern music, but still close to their Latin American influences and Mexican heritage.
They have won a Grammy; toured from coast to coast; collaborated with legends including Elvis Costello, Bunbury, Fito Paez; appeared on Conan; and most recently shared the stage with Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones and Pepe Aguilar.
La Santa Cecilia burst into the scene in 2011 with the release of their debut album Noche y Citas. This album gave them their first nomination at the Latin Grammy Awards for the single La Negra. It was also with this release that they first voiced their sympathy and support for various human rights movements, and have since used their music to openly support these causes.
This event is presented by The Olympia Theater.

Baixa Terapia: Uma Comédia No Divã
“Baixa Terapia" is a hilarious comedy with a surprising twist. Three couples arrive for a therapy session – only to discover it’s a group therapy! To top it off, the psychologist won’t be present, but left the room ready for them with a small bar, plenty of whiskey, and a table with numbered envelopes with step-by-step instructions on how to conduct that special session. The goal is for all issues to be resolved as a group and deal with complaints, confessions, suspicions, revelations, truths and lies in unexpected ways!
This show is presented in Portuguese.
This event is presented by BIS Entertainment and The Olympia Theater.

MoonAmie’s Hunchback of Notre Dame
Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney animated feature, The Hunchback of Notre Dame showcases the film’s Academy Award-nominated score, as well as new songs by Menken and Schwartz. Peter Parnell’s new book embraces story theatre and features verbatim passages from Hugo’s gothic novel.
The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be "Out There," observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.
A sweeping score and powerful story make The Hunchback of Notre Dame an instant classic. Audiences will be swept away by the magic of this truly unforgettable musical.
