Gloria is a "woman of a certain age" but still feels young. Though lonely, she makes the best of her situation and fills her nights seeking love at social dance clubs for single adults. Her fragile happiness changes the day she meets Rodolfo. Their intense passion, to which Gloria gives her all, leaves her vacillating between hope and despair -- until she uncovers a new strength and realizes that, in her golden years, she can shine brighter than ever. GLORIA is Chile's official entry for Best 
Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards (R), and stars Paulina García in a tour de force performance that captured the Silver Bear Best Actress Award at this year's Berlin Film Festival.

Patti Vasquez is leading the Lipstick Mom Movement nationwide. Lipstick Moms believe that being a wife and mother doesn’t prevent you from feeling attractive. It says something when you can still feel good even if you’ve spent the day doing laundry and washing sippy cups. In her  stand-up show, Patti tackles motherhood, relationships, pop culture and more with a cheerful, witty edge that keeps audiences laughing all night. Don’t miss this fresh face of comedy that Lewis Black calls “simply marvelous” and Bill Maher calls “the funniest woman in comedy since Carol Burnett.”

Roger McGuinn (Mr. Tambourine Man) not only lived history, he made history with his fearless sense of experimentation. A Chicago native, McGuinn started as a folk musician, studying at the Old Town School of Folk Music and performing on the Chicago music scene. In the early 1960s, McGuinn added a rock beat to his folk repertoire and met up with Gene Clark and David Crosby to co-found The Byrds.

Tickets $22 / $20 BAC Members

The outrageously prodigious comic and musical soul of 1930's Harlem lives on in this rollicking, swinging, finger-snapping revue that is still considered one of Broadway's best. The inimitable Thomas"Fats" Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club, honky tonk dives along Lenox Avenue, rent parties, stride piano players and that jumpin' new beat, swing.
Sometimes sassy, sometimes sultry, with moments of devastating beauty, AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' is simply unforgettable.

Black 47 espouses an unblinkingly political and thoroughly Irish form of rock 'n' roll, with songs covering topics from the Northern Ireland conflict to civil rights and urban unrest in contemporary New York. Black 47 earned their chops playing the pub scene in Manhattan and self-producing their first indie record, Black 47, before converting The Cars' Ric Ocasek to the cause and gaining mainstream attention with their second album. The band celebrates their 20th year on the road with their latest album "Bankers and Gangsters"
