Their story inspired the hit NETFLIX series NARCOS.

Step into the world of DEA special agents Javier Peña and Steve Murphy who were instrumental in the take down of one of the most gruesome and prolific drug lords of all time,"The King of Cocaine," Pablo Escobar.

Assigned as the lead investigators targeting Pablo Escobar and the Medellin Cartel, these true American heroes provide a first-hand lesson in history as they discuss their efforts in bringing down the world’s first narco-terrorist, the challenges they faced in hostile and life-threatening environments, and the innovative strategies they employed to successfully end the reign of terror of the world’s most wanted criminal. Their multimedia presentation is followed by a Q&A opportunity during which Javier and Steve will entertain questions related to their investigation and  the making of NARCOS.

When nine-year old Elmer Elevator hears about a baby dragon who is held captive by the ferocious animals of Wild Island, he sets off on an adventure to rescue the dragon and return him home. With the help of his friend the Alley Cat, Elmer packs everything he thinks he’ll need – including chewing gum, two-dozen lollipops, seven hair ribbons and a box of rubber bands! With pluck and ingenuity Elmer makes his way to the Island, outwits the wild animals and saves Boris, the dragon. But can they find their way back home? As they travel over the ocean they get lost in a storm and discover a magical island of escaped canaries. The resourceful Elmer helps the canaries overcome their “curiosity disease” and uncover a stash of hidden riches. With bags of gold and the canaries’ blessings, the dauntless duo at last returns home. With talking animals, a daring rescue, a flying dragon, buried treasure and lots of humor throughout, this fabulous adventure is brought to the stage in Enchantment Theatre’s distinctive style. Using puppets, masks, inventive scenic effects and original music, Enchantment Theatre Company is delighted to bring you the story of a compassionate and courageous young boy and his unlikely friendship with a splendid yellow and blue-striped dragon. $1 from every ticket sold will be donated to POAC Autism Services.
What is Sensory-Friendly Programming? In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released a report showing 1 in 68 children nationally has an Autism Spectrum Disorder. New Jersey showed the highest rates in the report, with 1 in 45 on the spectrum, including 1 in 28 boys. According to the CDC, approximately 2% or more of New Jersey children from birth to 21 years of age currently experience Autism Spectrum Disorder. With guidance from POAC Autism Services  and several area performing arts organizations already presenting programs for children on the spectrum, the Basie will transform itself into a safe, judgement-free and sensory-friendly environment for these performances. Patrons and their children will be permitted to bring in favorite snacks, iPads and other objects of affinity, while house lights will remain bright enough for children to know where they are, and sudden or shrill sounds will be eliminated from the performance. A quiet room with “fidgets” and coloring pages / crayons will also be available to families. Basie event staffers have also received training and guidance from POAC to ensure its sensory-friendly programs are just that: friendly. Prior To The Performance: A downloadable PDF and video for parents will be made available, detailing the sights and procedures guests will experience as they visit the Basie for this unique performance. In addition, the Basie will hold two “Meet Your Seat” events in the weeks prior to these events, so that families may visit the theatre while it’s empty to allow children the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the space. These events would not be possible without the support the Basie received during its live “Giving Tuesday” broadcast on 94.3 The Point. On that day, the Grunin Family Foundation matched donations dollar-for-dollar, all in the name of funding our sensory-friendly efforts. In addition, $2 from every ticket sold on that day was donated back to POAC to support that organization’s mission “Exposing children to the arts is vital to their growth in so many ways and this is no different for children with autism,” says POAC founder Gary Weitzen. “However, parents of children with special needs are often hesitant to bring their kids to performances for a whole host of reasons from sensory issues to concern about the reaction of other theater goers to their children.” “By providing this autism and sensory friendly performance, the Basie is not only making theater more accessible, they are giving all of our children the gift of the arts. We can’t thank them enough.” Presented by Count Basie Theatre" ["post_title"]=> string(18) "My Father's Dragon" ["post_excerpt"]=> string(0) "" ["post_status"]=> string(7) "publish" ["comment_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["ping_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["post_password"]=> string(0) "" ["post_name"]=> string(17) "my-fathers-dragon" ["to_ping"]=> string(0) "" ["pinged"]=> string(0) "" ["post_modified"]=> string(19) "2018-04-16 14:43:37" ["post_modified_gmt"]=> string(19) "2018-04-16 18:43:37" ["post_content_filtered"]=> string(0) "" ["post_parent"]=> int(0) ["guid"]=> string(64) "http://www.countbasietheatre.org/?post_type=tm_event&p=1999" ["menu_order"]=> int(0) ["post_type"]=> string(8) "tm_event" ["post_mime_type"]=> string(0) "" ["comment_count"]=> string(1) "0" ["filter"]=> string(3) "raw" } [3]=> object(WP_Post)#1437 (24) { ["ID"]=> int(3053) ["post_author"]=> string(1) "5" ["post_date"]=> string(19) "2017-10-06 10:00:42" ["post_date_gmt"]=> string(19) "2017-10-06 14:00:42" ["post_content"]=> string(1423) "Armed with nothing but their sharp wit, comedians Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood take to the live stage to create hilarious and original scenes in their two-man show.

  Featuring Artists Flor de Toloache Latin Grammy nominees Mariachi Flor de Toloache are New York’s first and only all­-woman Mariachi group. Founded in 2008, Mariachi Flor de Toloache is led by founders Mireya I. Ramos & Shae Fiol. Reminiscent of the early days of mariachi, the group started as a trio, accompanied by harp, violin and vihuela – the guitar-shaped, double-stringed instrument most often associated with mariachi music. Today, Mariachi Flor De Toloache performs as a full ensemble, with members hailing from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Italy and the United States. This diversity defines their unique flavor and sound: a cultural bouquet that’s an edgy, versatile and fresh take on traditional Mexican music. Mariachi Flor de Toloache coalesce like a band of sisters, with a grace and vibrant beauty that casts a spell over their audiences not unlike the legendary Toloache flower, used to this day in Mexico as a love potion. While working to preserve centuries old traditions of Mariachi, their melange of the traditional and the modern pushes the boundaries of the genre and brings Mariachi music to new audiences. Mariachi Flor De Toloache’s critically acclaimed self-titled debut album received a Latin Grammy nomination for “Best Ranchero/Mariachi Album” in 2015. The group is currently ready to go on tour in support of their new record Las Caras Lindas, released by Daptone distributed, New York City based Chulo Records.  
  Villalobos Brothers The Villalobos Brothers (Ernesto, Alberto and Luis) use their violins and voices to redefine contemporary Mexican music. Their original compositions masterfully blend elements of jazz, rock, classical and Mexican folk to deliver a powerful message of love, brotherhood and social justice. Artistic Director and guitarist Humberto Flores, drummer Rosa Avila and bassist Leo Sherman complete the line-up. The Villalobos Brothers were born and raised in Xalapa, Mexico. They spent their childhood learning classical violin from Henryk Szeryng’s disciple Carlos Marrufo and listening to their grandmother Cristina Vásquez sing traditional songs accompanying herself on the guitar and the accordion. In addition to the violin they soon learned to sing and play other instruments, including piano and guitar. Their work has been recognized by numerous awards, including a proclamation from the City of New York, the Independent Music Awards’ “Vox Populi” award, and were crowned the “Ultimate Winners” in The Greene Space’s Battle of the Boroughs competition. Today, the Villalobos Brothers continue to collaborate with legendary musicians, including Grammy winners Arturo O’Farrill, Antonio Sanchez, Eduardo Magallanes, Dan Zanes and many others.  
  Calpulli Mexican Dance Company Calpulli Mexican Dance Company’s mission is to celebrate the rich diversity of Mexican and Mexican-American cultural heritage through dance-based programming including live music. To this end, the organization produces professional performances via its touring company, arts-in-education and cultural enrichment programming, and community outreach activities that are free or low-cost and target the underserved Mexican and Mexican-American community. This includes the company’s years-long relationship with the Count Basie Theatre, where its dance classes are offered to the borough’s rich Mexican and central American population and those interested in learning more about the importance of dance in Mexican culture. Calpulli celebrates the rich dance and music traditions of Mexico’s diverse cultural history interpreted through its unique artistic vision. The fresh, vital repertoire honors Mexico’s past and Mexican-American cultural expression in the United States. Calpulli Mexican Dance Company also does business as Calpulli Danza Mexicana.   Presented by Count Basie Theatre" ["post_title"]=> string(23) "Basie Mariachi Festival" ["post_excerpt"]=> string(0) "" ["post_status"]=> string(7) "publish" ["comment_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["ping_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["post_password"]=> string(0) "" ["post_name"]=> string(23) "basie-mariachi-festival" ["to_ping"]=> string(0) "" ["pinged"]=> string(0) "" ["post_modified"]=> string(19) "2018-03-23 12:01:39" ["post_modified_gmt"]=> string(19) "2018-03-23 16:01:39" ["post_content_filtered"]=> string(0) "" ["post_parent"]=> int(0) ["guid"]=> string(64) "http://www.countbasietheatre.org/?post_type=tm_event&p=4685" ["menu_order"]=> int(0) ["post_type"]=> string(8) "tm_event" ["post_mime_type"]=> string(0) "" ["comment_count"]=> string(1) "0" ["filter"]=> string(3) "raw" } [5]=> object(WP_Post)#1441 (24) { ["ID"]=> int(4870) ["post_author"]=> string(1) "5" ["post_date"]=> string(19) "2018-04-06 09:00:56" ["post_date_gmt"]=> string(19) "2018-04-06 13:00:56" ["post_content"]=> string(1169) "Click "Buy Tickets" to download your free tickets, or visit our box office at 99 Monmouth Street, Red Bank.

By 13, he had his own vocal group, the Bobbysoxers. He performed at every amateur night he could get to in his mothers car, unbeknownst to her of course. In 1957, he scored a meeting with Don Costa, the A&R man for ABC-Paramount Records. He played him a batch of songs that included "Diana"– Costa was duly enthusiastic about the potential of the young singer and songwriter. The rapid and enormous success of "Diana"- his first number one hit – made him a star. By the ‘70s, the success of “My Way” and a string of hits like “(You’re) Having My Baby” confirmed his status as an icon of popular music. His later achievements as a recording artist included “Hold Me ‘Til the Morning Comes,”, the Spanish-language album Amigos, and Body of Work. It was revealed upon its release in 2009, that Anka co-wrote Michael Jackson’s posthumous #1 worldwide hit, “This Is It.” Paul Anka’s long awaited autobiography, “My Way An Autobiography”, and album “Duets”, featuring duets with Dolly Parton, Michael Jackson, Michael Buble, Celine Dion and more are out now. Anka’s two most recent albums – Rock Swings and Classic Songs, My Way – ingeniously featured songs originally created by some of the biggest rock performers of the day but the twist: Paul Anka did the songs ‘his way.’ Presented by Count Basie Theatre & AM Productions " ["post_title"]=> string(88) "Paul Anka - Celebrating 60 Years of Hits - His Way" ["post_excerpt"]=> string(0) "" ["post_status"]=> string(7) "publish" ["comment_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["ping_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["post_password"]=> string(0) "" ["post_name"]=> string(9) "paul-anka" ["to_ping"]=> string(0) "" ["pinged"]=> string(0) "" ["post_modified"]=> string(19) "2018-04-20 10:39:54" ["post_modified_gmt"]=> string(19) "2018-04-20 14:39:54" ["post_content_filtered"]=> string(0) "" ["post_parent"]=> int(0) ["guid"]=> string(64) "http://www.countbasietheatre.org/?post_type=tm_event&p=3167" ["menu_order"]=> int(0) ["post_type"]=> string(8) "tm_event" ["post_mime_type"]=> string(0) "" ["comment_count"]=> string(1) "0" ["filter"]=> string(3) "raw" } } ["post_count"]=> int(9) ["current_post"]=> int(-1) ["in_the_loop"]=> bool(false) ["post"]=> object(WP_Post)#1305 (24) { ["ID"]=> int(4513) ["post_author"]=> string(1) "5" ["post_date"]=> string(19) "2018-03-12 09:40:18" ["post_date_gmt"]=> string(19) "2018-03-12 13:40:18" ["post_content"]=> string(2500) "Criss Angel has dominated the world of magic for over a decade, but even with his incomparable success, Criss’ passion is to constantly create and bring his magic revolution to fans everywhere. Criss Angel RAW – The Mindfreak Unplugged is a theatrical experience unlike any seen before; bringing Angel’s famous sleight of hand street magic, mentalism, and even some of his most iconic illusions to life – all performed in an intimate, raw setting.
