Great shows grace the Gracie in 2018-19

BANGOR – There are some great shows that will be gracing the stage of the Gracie Theatre – located on the campus of Husson University – over the next year.

This marks the seventh season for the Gracie. Seven seasons of quality programming aimed at enhancing the cultural landscape of the region. Seven seasons of wonderful performances offering something for audiences of all ages to enjoy. Seven seasons of seeing things you won’t find anywhere else in the area.

Whether you’re looking for music or comedy or one-man shows featuring Hollywood icons, Gracie Theatre Managing Director Jeri Misler has come up with something for you. Misler was kind enough to chat with The Maine Edge about what’s going on at the Gracie and talk about some of the highlights, as well as about the process of assembling such a diverse season.

BANGOR The Gracie Theatre at Husson University, Bangor's premier center for the performing arts, presents Sounds of the Supremes, Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m. The show is dedicated to the Motown hits of the '70s/'80s and features Kaaren Ragland, who toured with original Supreme Mary Wilson for eight years. 

The music of Motown, which influenced a generation, has shown itself to be one of the most definitive and enduring contributions to American pop music history. This legacy lives on today with Sounds of the Supremes.

'That's just funny right there. I don't care where you're from,' a friend of mine said recently after seeing a YouTube clip of comedian Juston McKinney. He was right - McKinney's comedy is universal.  

Whether he's talking about life with his wife, children and dogs or growing up on the border of Maine and New Hampshire, McKinney, a veteran of 'The Tonight Show' (both Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien) and two Comedy Central specials, is as relatable to an auditorium of college students as he would be to a convention of seasoned firefighters. Perhaps an Amazon.com review of McKinney's recent DVD 'A Middle Class Hole' sums it up best: 'He's clean and he's hilarious.'
