A.D. Players at The George and Artists Lounge Live are thrilled to be working together again after a long, socially distanced hiatus. The doors of The George have been closed since March, and though A.D. Players was able to produce their virtual gala to great success in August, this special event will mark the beginning of the gradual reopening of The George.
After months of careful planning, creating new health and safety protocols, and examining everything from entry to the building to seating, A.D. Players and Artists Lounge Live is confident in bringing an amazing musical moment to Houston. Acclaimed singer, multi-instrumentalist, and dear friend of A.D. Players, John-Mark McGaha returns for an extended run of Signed, Sealed, Delivered: John-Mark McGaha Sings Stevie Wonder.
The concert will run Tuesdays through Saturdays, October 13-31 at varying times.
Broadway World calls McGaha’s God-gifted voice “crystal-clear perfection.” A child prodigy like his musical hero, McGaha makes joyful noise as he sheds a personal light onto the miraculous life of one of America’s most gifted singer/songwriters. This abundant collection of hit songs includes Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely,” “My Cherie Amor,” “For Once in My Life,” “I Wish,” “Superstition,” “Sir Duke,” “I Just Called to Say I Love You,” and many more.
A.D. Players audiences have had the privilege of hearing John-Mark at the last three After Dinner Affair Galas. He is a showstopper, to be sure!
“John-Mark is one of the most talented people I’ve ever known, and I am honored to also call him one of my closest friends,” said executive director Jake Speck. “I believe that this event is something the people of Houston need: a chance to safely get out and be encouraged and uplifted. It will be a night to remember.”
Seating is extremely limited due to COVID-19 capacity restrictions. Face coverings will be required and all seating will be socially distanced. Cleaning and sanitizing protocols have been updated and you can rest assured that A.D. Players are implementing all the latest disinfecting technologies and complying with all state, local, and CDC guidelines.
