    Dane Cook and Daniel Tosh Bringing Comedy to Cities Nationwide
    Dane Cook, who quickly gained fame with his honest, yet provocative stand-up performances, will be kicking off his fall Under Oath Tour on Sept. 12 at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. His tour will continue through October with additional stops at venues like Detroit’s Fox Theatre (Sept. 21), the Chicago Theatre (Sept. 22), and the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif. (Sept. 28). Most recently, the comedian branched out from his usual stable of romantic comedies, and added the Disney movie, “Planes” to his repertoire as the voice behind Dusty Crophopper.

    After performing at the famed Bonnaroo Festival earlier this summer, Comedy Central mainstay Daniel Tosh is hitting the road in lieu of his hit comedy series, Tosh.0. The brash comedian has multiple dates at the Mirage in Las Vegas, Nev. (Aug. 23-24, Sept. 27-28, Oct. 11-12, Nov. 1-2), as well as stops at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, Wash. (Sept. 13-14), Comerica Theatre in Phoenix, Ariz. (Oct. 25-26), and the Agua Caliente Casino in Rancho Mirage, Calif. (Oct. 5).

    Matilda the Musical and Betrayal Drawing in the Masses
    The classic Roald Dahl book-turned-theater production, “Matilda,” is underway at both the Shubert Theatre in New York, N.Y., and the Cambridge Theatre in London, England. Since opening in April 2013, it has been extremely successful and a plan has been set in motion to get U.S. and Australian tours in the works. The Broadway cast has also been in the studio to record Tim Minchin’s score of the production, which will be available beginning Sept. 27 at the Shubert Theatre before hitting stores on Oct. 22. 

    There’s at least a month left until Betrayal is set to open at the Barrymore Theatre in New York, N.Y., but already, the buzz surrounding the Harold Pinter play has been building. One reason could be because the production stars Daniel Craig (star of the most recent James Bond films), as well as award-winning actress, Rachel Weisz. Catch the exhilarating Broadway revival starting Oct. 1 before it closes early next year.
