Great seats remain on sale for “Embraceable You,” the second installment in the 2016-2017 ASU-Newport Patron Series.  Scheduled for Feb. 14 at 7 p.m., the show is a tribute to the music of George Gershwin, set in post-war Paris. 

Join us for a night of musical theatre at its finest, featuring sizzling dance numbers, nostalgic ballads and romantic comedy, all accompanied by live musicians and set under the Paris sky.  The show will rekindle memories of watching Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse trip the light fantastic when Dean and Lisa Ferguson Balkwill, assisted by four accomplished musicians, blow the breath of life back into post-war Paris.  Straight from Broadway, these two triple threats are brimming with charm and charisma.

Tickets are priced at just $23 and may be purchased by logging on to or by calling 870-512-7800.
