Warehouse Performing Arts Center– Cornelius


Two strangers, a man and a woman (late 40′s to middle 50′s) board a San Francisco BART train at 4:30 AM. They’re alone in the car, each is married, and both are doing the New York Times crossword. She’s an organized, sensible, psychologist. He’s a free spirited, unemployed ad exec. She is a crossword pro, he always quits. When he tosses his puzzle away, she snaps, “Crosswords are a metaphor for life, those who finish, succeed, those who don’t, fail.” Now he vows to finish. Why? He’s a competitor and she happens to be lovely. This starts an 80 minute ride described by critics as “Hilarious,” “Witty,” “Romantic,” “Poignant,” “Wonderfully entertaining.”

Homefront Music Series – Huntersville

Seth Glier will be performing for the monthly music series held at the Wynfield Forest Clubhouse. Despite his MPress recording artist Seth Glier is a seasoned troubadour. A singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who averages over 250 live performances annually, Seth has gone from opening act to headlining his own shows and playing major festivals. He has shared the stage with artists as diverse as James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, Edwin McCain, Martin Sexton, Emmylou Harris and Ryan Adams and has quickly become known for his passionate live sets and powerful command of both piano and guitar. His music has also caught the ears of fans, and critics alike, with USA Today stating that his “exquisite tenor echoes Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel.” Building on the acclaim of his Grammy®-nominated sophomore album “The Next Right Thing,” Glier’s subsequent record “Things I Should Let You Know” landed him his first Daytrotter session, was called “a genuine revelation” by Blurt Magazine, and was praised by M Music & Musicians Magazine for its “shimmering, seductive melodies.”
