Could he really have decided to do SOMETHING?
I’ve been wishing for a Chris Tucker movie or a comedy show for years…or at least since the last “Rush Hour.” I was beginning to think the guy had lost his love for working.
But now, it looks like we will get our fix. It will be interesting to see what he’s come with during the time out of the spotlight.
You can catch him at the Orpheum on July 30 at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at The Orpheum Theatre box office, online at Ticketmaster.com and by phone at 800-745-3000.
Stilettos & Sandals After Dark
The 2nd Annual Stilettos & Sandals after Sunset, benefiting the Mid-South Food Bank’s Food for Kids Backpack Program, is on the way!
Many children in our area reside in households that are below the poverty level and are in need of the very basics that many of us take for granted. The “Food For Kids Backpack Program” gives kids a backpack filled with wholesome food to take home on weekends. Opus Entertainment Group’s goal for this event is to raise funds to purchase the backpacks for children, as well as the food to fill them and/or donated backpacks and can goods.
Showtime is Saturday, June 25 at 7 p.m. at Minglewood Hall. Events include an auction, comedy show by Joe Torry and great music.
For more information, call 901-650-2986.
‘Calling All Men’
My good friend Flo Roach invites you attend “Calling All Men,” a production that has been 20-plus years in the making. This one-woman show pays tribute to all men who do the right thing by their children and women.
Although it is a one-woman show with only one woman, it has approximately 100 men. Singing, dancing, drama, comedy, spoken word and more are combined to tell a story of love and appreciation. A portion of the proceeds from this production will be donated to a shelter for abused/homeless women and children.
The show is Saturday (June 18) at 7 p.m. Tickets are $30 and may be purchased in advance by calling 901-331-3515.
Morris Day & the Time
There’s a style of music and a certain dance that only Morris Day can execute. This guy not only built a sound that’s not like any other, but a persona that is easily recognizable anywhere.
It’s pretty safe to say that no one puts on a show like Morris Day and the Time. You can catch them at the Fitz Casino Tunica on Friday, June 24.
Tickets on sale now at Ticketmaster outlets and Ticketmaster.com.
UP NEXT: I have great news to share with you, but I can’t drop it until next week. So for right now, I’ll keep it under my hat. Trust me, it is REALLY great news. Until then, that’s what’s happening.
