THE GOGUE CENTER
Believe it or not, 2022 is just around the corner, and a new year of top-notch arts entertainment at the Gogue Center is on its way.
Our Spring 2022 lineup boasts some of the biggest names in rock, jazz, dance and chamber arts, not to mention the highly anticipated return of touring Broadway musicals.
In January, the Gogue Center will present multi-night performances of Fiddler on the Roof (Jan. 3 and 4) and Beautiful: the Carole King Musical (Jan. 29 and 30) as well as the return of iconoclastic bassist Edgar Meyer with his eclectic quartet, Bush / Marshall / Meyer / Meyer (Jan. 27).
We then move into February in electrifying style, presenting two very different yet equally compelling dance companies: Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenco (Feb. 10) and the Bessie Award-winning Camille A. Brown & Dancers (Feb. 18). The packed month also includes performances by legendary jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis (Feb. 20), the thunderous Japanese drum collective Yamato (Feb. 25) and Tony Award-winning singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell with folk-rock group Bonny Light Horseman (Feb. 27).
Our March performances offer a mixture of the classical and modern, featuring the celebrated chamber orchestra Les Violons du Roy with pianist Jeremy Denk (March 13), the Cuban jazz supergroup Alfredo Rodríguez and Pedrito Martinez (March 18), the innovative, boundary-stretching Ballet X (March 26) and a visit from jazz mega-star Kenny G (March 26).
In April, the Gogue Center welcomes the long-awaited appearance of blue-eyed soul legends The Righteous Brothers (April 23), fronted by Bill Medley and Auburn alumnus Bucky Heard, as well as performances by breakout star of stage-and-screen Lauren Patten (April 24) and a mesmerizing musical duel by Piano Battle (April 2).
Winding down in May, our Spring 2022 season rounds out with the lighter-than-air circus arts spectacle Air Play by Acrobuffos (May 13) and is bookended by two more Broadway musicals — nationally renowned productions of Rodger’s & Hammerstein’s OKLAHOMA! (May 17, 18, 19) and Anastasia (May 31 and June 1).
Tickets to many of the shows in Spring 2022 — particularly Broadway — are likely to sell out quickly. Patrons are encouraged to secure their seats as soon as possible to avoid missing out on their favorite artists and performances.
As a reminder, tickets purchased for any rescheduled performances — including those purchased as part of a subscription package from either the inaugural or 2020–21 seasons — will be honored on rescheduled performance dates.
