AUBURN –

Grammy, Tony winner Lauren Patten takes the Marentes Stage April 24

The Gogue Center presents star of stage and screen Lauren Patten live in concert on Sunday, April 24.

 Patten is probably best known for her role as Jo in the Alanis Morissette musical Jagged Little Pill, which earned her the 2021 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical. She also received a Grammy, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle award for her work in the production.

She has achieved considerable success in the worlds of musical theatre, television and film. In addition to Jagged Little Pill, her stage credits include Fun Home on Broadway, the off-Broadway smash The Wolves and the original Deaf West revival of Spring Awakening in Los Angeles. On television, she played Officer Rachel Witten in seasons 8 to 12 of CBS’s Blue Bloods and has guest starred on The Good Fight and HBO’s lauded drama series Succession. She also played the supporting role of Brooke in Michael Showalter’s 2017 film The Big Sick.

Patten’s April 24 performance is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in the Woltosz Theatre and will include musical theatre numbers along with covers of pop and rock favorites. Tickets can be purchased online, by telephone at 334.844.TIXS (8497) or in person at the Gogue Center box office, located at 910 S. College St. in Auburn, Tuesday through Friday, 1 to 4 p.m.

Righteous Brothers’ sold-out April 23 concert brings that lovin’ feelin’ to the Gogue Center

Blue-eyed soul legends the Righteous Brothers croon their way into the Gogue Center for a much-anticipated (and sold-out) concert on Saturday, April 23 at 7:30 p.m. in the Woltosz Theatre.

For this tour, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Bill Medley is joined by Alabama native and Auburn alumnus Bucky Heard, who has performed with Medley since 2016. A powerhouse rock and roll singer with astounding vocal range, Heard has shared the stage with legends like Andy Williams and Glen Campbell, and has been the ideal counterpart to Medley for conjuring the classic Righteous Brothers’ sound throughout the last six years of live performances.

The April 23 concert will feature many of the Righteous Brothers’ immortal hit songs — “Lovin’ Feelin’,” “Soul & Inspiration,” “Unchained Melody,” “Rock and Roll Heaven” and Medley’s Grammy-winning “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” from Dirty Dancing.

Originally formed by Medley and Bobby Hatfield in 1963, the Righteous Brothers are widely regarded as one of the greatest duos in popular music history. Their 1964 number-one charting “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” recorded by Phil Spector, is considered a landmark recording and one that carved the foundation for the Righteous Brothers’ indelible 60-year legacy.

 Patrons requesting information on this performance are encouraged to contact our patron services team at gpactickets@auburn.edu, by telephone at 334.844.TIXS (8497) or in person at the Gogue Center box office, located at 910 S. College St. in Auburn, Tuesday through Friday, 1 to 4 p.m.

 This performance has been rescheduled from its original performance date of Thursday, November 5, 2020. All tickets issued for the original date and all subsequent rescheduled dates are valid for admission to the new rescheduled engagement on Saturday, April 23.
