October 20 - November 28, 2021

A true cultural phenomenon, Lin-Manuel Miranda's Pulitzer Prize-winning Hamilton is changing the face of the modern musical. An exhilarating historical epic, that is equal parts Sondheim and Notorious B.I.G., this record-breaking Broadway musical traces the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, one of America's most important (and colorful) historical figures.

Tiny Meat Gang Podcast

Until July 23, 2021

They may be small in physical stature, but former software developers Cody Ko and Noel Miller more than make up for it with gigantic personalities and even bigger laughs. Leaving their former career paths in the dust, Ko and Miller joined forces and created The Tiny Meat Gang Podcast to embrace what they already knew - they are without a doubt two of the funniest and most honest people on the internet, and their rising fan base can't get enough. Perfect for a road trip or traffic jams, the rant-based comedy podcast covers topics from Star Wars to Bitcoin, and has even featured a special guest in the form of Post Malone.

September 30, 2021

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor. Much of his humor is drawn from his unconventional North Carolina upbringing, his varied stream of odd-jobs (Christmas elf at Macy's, anyone?) and plays to his self-deprecating strengths, and now often concerns his life today in France with his partner.

October 1 - 7, 2021

With the face of a teenager and a deep, rich voice that belie his 35 years of age, the Emmy-winning John Mulaney has taken the comedy scene by storm. His acerbic wit made him a perfect fit for Saturday Night Live while his versatility as a performer helped him secure a spot in the Broadway Hall of Fame with his production, The Oh, Hello Show. Mulaney resonates with his generation as he weathers the climes of adulthood and uncertainty, all the while coming across as an adorable geek.
