  • Defending the Caveman

    The longest running solo play in Broadway history, Defending the Caveman has become a worldwide hit.  Having been translated into 16 different languages, Caveman has won the hearts of millions in more than 30 countries and is sure to win yours. Defending the Caveman, starring Cody Lyman, has both sexes roaring with laughter and recognition, affectionately nudging each other as they recognize themselves in the stories being told on the stage. Its "outrageously funny and surprisingly sweet exploration of the gender gap" (Chicago Sun Times) has made Caveman "a comic phenomenon." (New York Times). With hysterical observations into contemporary feminism, masculine sensitivity and the erogenous zones, Defending the Caveman mines the common themes in relationships that go straight through the funny bone and into the heart. Defending the Caveman will be at the Sandler Center in Virginia Beach from July 31 to August 10. We’ve got tickets to opening night. Enter now to win a pair!

  • Monumentour: Fall Out Boy and Paramore

    Fall Out Boy originated from Chicago's hardcore punk scene, but tended towards the pop punk sides of the genre. The group went through a succession of drummers before recording their debut album, “Take This to Your Grave” (2003), which became an underground success and helped the band gain a dedicated fanbase through heavy touring, as well as some moderate commercial success. While Fall Out Boy's music is now typically described as pop punk and pop rock, the band were generally seen in the mid-2000s at the forefront of the "emo pop" explosion. “Take This to Your Grave” has often been cited as a vital blueprint for pop punk music in the 2000s. The band produced albums before taking a break. They got back together and decided to change their music, releasing “Save Rock and Roll” in 2013. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The single “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” peaked at #13. Fall Out Boy will be joined by Paramore on the Monumentour at Farm Bureau Live at Virginia Beach on July 29 at 6:30 p.m. Enter now to win a pair of tickets!
