THEATER LYNN AUDITORIUM 3 City Hall Square, Lynn, MA 781-599-SHOW www.LynnAuditorium.com JOHNNY MATHIS -- April 8, 2016. With his ever-youthful voice, it's hard to believe that legendary singer Johnny Mathis has been wowing audiences for over half a century-- and he's still going strong. That unmistakable voice -- both fragile and powerful -- singing timeless classics like "Chances Are," "Misty," "Brazil," "It's Not For Me to Say" "A Cer- tain Smile" "My Funny Valentine" and "Twelfth of Never" never ceases to mes- merize listeners into a wistful trance. Anyone who has been lucky enough to get tickets to witness Johnny Mathis perform LIVE knows that he was born to be on stage with a microphone in hand, an orchestra at his back, and a rapt crowd before him. Be it a love ballad, swing tune, or a Latin-flavored number, Johnny executes each phrase with that characteristic panache possessed by crooners of a by-gone era when sing- ers didn't have (or need!} the help of viral YouTube videos to capture the hearts of fans worldwide. Needless to say, serious fans of nostalgic music (also sung by the likes of Michael Bubl6, Harry Cormick, Jr. and Tony Bennett) who score Johnny Mathis tickets are always in for a "Wonderful! Wonder- full" time.

A young prince sets out on a joumey to find the ultimate meaning of life in the vaudevillian spectacular of Pippin, from GodspeU creator Stephen Schwartz.

With elements of surrealism and naughtiness, there is a moving core to this quest for fulfil- ment, told through a medieval fable that still connects with contemporary audiences.
