Upcoming Events

Pete the Cat

Children's Theatre
When Pete the Cat is caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners –– and boy are they square! Nevertheless, for the groovy blue cat, life is an adventure no matter where you wind up, so the minute Pete walks in the door, he gets the whole family rocking. The whole family, that is, except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized second grader on planet earth. As the end of second-grade approaches, Jimmy has many tests, and the last thing he needs is some groovy cat in his life, changing his family and turning everything upside down. However, when Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, it turns out Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second-grade art, and along the way, they both learn a little something new about inspiration. Join Jimmy and Pete on an adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus!

This concert features “Unsung” by Eric Lane Barnes, a suite of seven songs written about seven women who helped shape society: Susan B. Anthony, Queen Lili’uokalani, Katherine Johnson, Billie Jean King, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Margaret Cho, and The Most Inspiring Woman We Know. In the wake of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, this program is a powerful reminder of the groundbreaking women who led the way in the fight for equality and the furthering of women’s rights.

Joshua Redman Quartet

Jazz
Winner of the 1991 Thelonius Monk International Saxophone Competition, Joshua Redman, makes his way to the Folly to perform with his quartet on Thursday, April 11th at 8 PM. Joshua Redman is the son of legendary saxophonist Dewey Redman and dancer Renee Shedroff. After Joshua’s graduation from Harvard in 1991, he took a year off before his plan to attend Yale Law. During that year, Joshua was swept up in the New York jazz scene! Redman released his first self-titled album in 1993. After several more successful albums, he was appointed the Artistic Director of SFJAZZ in 2000. With that appointment, the SFJAZZ Collective was created. Joshua’s most recent album, Still Dreaming, was released in May of 2018. Redman is joined by drummer Brian Blade, Bassist Scott Colley, and trumpeter Ron Miles. Still Dreaming was inspired by his father, Dewey Redman’s 1967 band.
