The Cowan Center presents new Broadway shows and musical performances. February brings different entertainment and shows. Many tickets are available for you to buy about two to three weeks prior the performance. All tickets are on sale at the UT Tyler box office right outside of the Cowan Center.

The Color Purple will be preformed at the University of Texas in Tyler on February 3rd and 4th. This Broadway performance has been nominated for eleven Tony awards and the jazz, blues, gospel music has been nominated for a Grammy. The story of “The Color Purple” is an inspiration story of a woman who gains courage, finds love, and discovers her unique voice. This is a “feel good” play with moving musical pieces. This is a great show to celebrate the power of love.

“Mamma Mia! Here we go again! Oh, Oh…” the moment I started writing this paragraph the song rang through my head. The well-known Broadway show became even more well-known during the release of the movie Mamma Mia starring Meryl Streep in 2008. This story is about a daughter who wants here real dad to walk her down the aisle at her wedding but there is a big problem; she has three possible dads. The performance will come to life through colorful costumes, fun background sets, and great musical talent. The fun and light hearted musical would be a great new place to bring a date and enjoy a fun evening. The performance will be that the Cowan Center on February 28.

Gladys Knight brings a Vegas show to East Texas. Her amazingly strong voice has become legendary. Many of her songs have climbed the charts to make it to the top. She will be performing February 17. Her voice will blow you away. Her musical gifts have resulted in her winning seven Grammy Awards. Sing along to her popular song such as “I Heard it Through the Grapevine,” “Midnight Train to Georgia” and “Men.” This performance by the “Empress of Soul” will be one that should not be missed and one you will soon not forget.
