Cutler Majestic 2007 - 2008 Season
To Include Masters Series & Pulse Events

From Tin Pan Alley and collaborative dance to a rock legend and an exceptional company of drummers from Japan, the 2007-2008 season at The Cutler Majestic Theatre at Emerson College will include a broad spectrum of performances under the twin umbrellas of the Masters Series and Pulse At Emerson Series.

The Masters Series performances will provide a nostalgic, energetic journey through an exciting era in American music. The series includes three musicals:  "Beehive - The 60's Musical," I Love A Piano" and "Love, Janis" along with a concert featuring Dionne Warwick And Her Band.
In the Pulse Series, artists connect, combine and transform how we see dance, theater, media and music.  The series includes three dynamic cross-cultural offerings in "Yamato - The Drummers of Japan, "Tango Fire" and Attack Theatre's "Games Of Steel."

The schedule for the two series includes the following.

The Masters Series

"Beehive - The 60’s Musical"
July 25 - 28, 2007

"Beehive" celebrates the era of love and rock ‘n roll with 8 wailing women, 1 hot band, 43 wigs, 40 costumes, 25 cans of hairspray and over 40 of the greatest ‘60s hits. This is a high voltage, fast –paced, lighthearted look back at songs made popular by the girl groups and soloists of the period such as The Chiffons, The Supremes, Aretha Franklin, Connie Francis, Leslie Gore, Petula Clark and more. The featured songs include “The Name Game,” “It’s My Party,” “Downtown,” “Judy’s Turn to Cry,” “To Sir With Love,” “One Fine Day,” “You Don’t Own Me,”  “R-E-S-P-E-C-T,” “Where The Boys Are,” “The Beat Goes On,” “Natural Woman”and “I Hear a Symphony.”

Irving Berlin's "I Love A Piano"
September 21 – 30, 2007  

A nostalgic musical journey spanning seven decades of American history as seen through the eyes of Irving Berlin  – a man whom Jerome Kern described by saying "Irving Berlin has no place in American music...he IS American Music!" Using 64 of Berlin’s enduring and popular favorites, this new show captures the spirit of America -- from the Ragtime rhythms of the early 20th century through the swinging sophistication of the 1920s and 30s to the sentimental songs that inspired a nation during two World Wars to the innocent optimism of the 1950’s. Timeless classics such as “White Christmas,” “God Bless America,” “Puttin’ On The Ritz” and “There’s No Business Like Show Business” do more than define the music of a generation, they define the music of our country.

Dionne Warwick and her Band
October 27 - 28, 2007

International music legend Dionne Warwick is celebrating more than 45 years in the business. Billboard magazine notes that with no less than fifty-five hit singles Miss Warwick is the second most charted female of the past forty years. Dionne Warwick received her first Grammy Award in 1968 for the classic "Do You Know The Way to San Jose?" and in so doing, became the first African-American solo female artist of her generation to win the prestigious award for Best Contemporary Female Vocal Performance. As the "voice" behind a decade of classic tunes written with her in mind by the famed team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Warwick is an international artist.

"Love, Janis"
May 7 – 11, 2008

"Love, Janis" goes behind the music to offer a glimpse at the soul of a legend through the letters she wrote home, interviews she gave and the songs she made famous. Classics like “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart” and “Mercedes Benz” come to life in this intimate portrayal inspired by the best-selling book by Laura Joplin. 

Pulse At Emerson Series
YAMATO - The Drummers of Japan  
"Shin– On (Heartbeat)"- World Tour
December 1 - 2, 2007

Not exactly dance, not precisely music, not solely spectacle, Japan's Yamato Drummers are a combination of all three. They fill the stage with huge, beautiful drums to apply a ferocity that lies somewhere between the seriousness of Samurai and the crazed exhibitionism of heavy-metal rock drummers.  

"Tango Fire"
featuring the Estampas Porteñas Company
January 11 – 13, 2008

Direct from Buenos Aires, "Tango Fire" offers an unforgettable experience through the history of Tango – the world’s most alluring and exciting dance. Featuring a company of Argentina's finest dancers and musicians, the internationally acclaimed Tango Company Estampas Porteñas in its Boston debut, takes audiences on a journey through the most seductive of dance forms.

Attack Theatre's "Games of Steel"
February 22 – 24, 2008

Dance Magazine called "Games of Steel" "ever-entertaining and hellishly fun.” Journey to a visual landscape of steel with ladders to nowhere, sixteen foot seesaws and a musical landscape of steel cellos and rock music.  Meet a corrupt host who emerges from a house of steel and three relentless contestants dancing for an illusive prize of love, life and survival.

The Cutler Majestic Theatre is located at 219 Tremont Street in Boston’s Historic Theatre District. For tickets or information, call at 1-800-233-3123 or visit
