Welcome to the 2023-24 Newman Center Presents Season
September is here, bringing beautiful days and cooler evenings. While the temperatures outside might be slowly dropping, the heat is on at the Robert and Judi Newman Center for the Performing Arts. Capacity audiences have already enjoyed family-friendly performances of Dog Man: The Musical. The legacy of Martha Graham and her world-renowned dance company will be celebrated September 22-23 with two performances, including classic repertoire and the new piece by Hofesh Shechter, CAVE.
Executive Director Aisha Ahmad-Post has put together a season that expands globally like never before. “This year’s Newman Center audiences will get a chance to experience musicians and dancers with roots in South Asia, Ghana, Israel, Algeria, the Mediterranean and New Zealand.” This includes a performance September 27 by singer/songwriter/musician/dancer Okaidja Afroso who hails from the country of Ghana.
It’s big-city stuff, risky in all the right ways — and the Newman Center has a monopoly on it. They trust their customers’ evolving tastes and they know their venue, which has gained a reputation near and far for its acoustics and is a favorite with performers.Ray Mark Rinaldi The Denver Post
The month of September is capped off with the trio Love in Exile September 30, made up of Grammy-winning vocalist Arooj Aftab, virtuoso pianist Vijay Iyer and multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily. It will be a season to remember and both subscription packages and individual tickets are currently on-sale. For the entire Newman Center Presents line-up, visit newmancenterpresents.com.
