New Shows On Sale and Behind-the-Scenes with Something Rotten!

Show Dates Thursday, June 21, 2018 – 8 p.m.

Venue Walt Disney Theater

Tickets Start at $45

Description Join comedian, activist, and author Chelsea Handler as she returns to Orlando for the first time in 8 years for an evening of entertaining and engaging conversation — no topic is off limits.

As Handler says, “When you know more you do better.” That’s why she wants to have real conversations — with you. The idea is to reminisce, talk about our personal experiences, and engage in meaningful dialogue. It’s not about right- or left-wing banter. It’s about us all coming to the table together with what we know, what we experience, and what matters most to us. Let’s be honest — nothing can ever move forward without open conversation, truth, and consideration.

The way it works is like this: Chelsea and her to-be-announced guest will spend about 45–60 minutes onstage engaging in conversation. After that, it’s your turn. We want to hear from YOU, so for the next 20-30 minutes, get ready for an in-depth audience Q+A. Think about your questions and comments, and expect to learn a little, be surprised, and enjoy yourself!

Presented by Dr. Phillips Center

Description It's the most wonderful time of the year! Join award-winning singer, actress and comedian, Jane Lynch, as she rings in the holidays with songs from her brand-new Christmas album.

Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Jane Lynch returns with her holiday concert! Fresh from her iconic portrayal of Sue Sylvester on Glee and her Broadway debut as Miss Hannigan in Annie, Jane will bring her comic skills and musical prowess to the theater stage. She will delight the crowd with poignant and hilarious takes on holiday favorites!

Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award winning actress, Jane Lynch, is getting in the Christmas spirit with the release of a brand new Christmas CD, A Swingin Little Christmas!

A SWINGIN’ LITTLE CHRISTMAS is unapologetically sentimental, recalling the classic Christmas albums of the 1950s and ‘60s. The album features fifteen tracks, including fresh takes on ten classic carols and five brand new nostalgia-inspired originals, penned by bandleader, Tony Guerrero. The disc is ripe with clever jazz arrangements, tight vocal harmonies and features a variety of instrumentations including a five-piece jazz quintet, a full big band and lush string orchestrations. Both Jane and Kate are well known for their comedic abilities, and while the album has several fun, lighthearted moments, there are also plenty of deep, rich and even serious musical moments to balance it out.

JANE LYNCH’S A SWINGIN LITTLE CHRISTMAS is sure to become a perennial holiday favorite!
