Fair Warning, Ladies. Frankie Valli's in Town.

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, September 25, 2012 at 12:00:00 am

We here at The Better Life hope we look this good when it's time for our diamond (that's 75) anniversary-ee-yee. A WPA (aka the Works Project Administration which was part of FDR's New Deal – you remember that one from history class, right?) project and indeed a jewel of Oklahoma City's arts venues, the Civic Center Music Hall has been captivating crowds since 1937. Extensively renovated by the original MAPS, the Center re-opened to capital commendations in 2001 with a new lease on its midlife and has been stirring and stupefying spectators ever since.

And to celebray-yay-yate, they're throwing quite the twist party with a special radio-show themed program paying tribute to some of the great artists that have played the Civic Center's stage, like James Brown and Elvis, performed by members of the Center's seven resident arts companies. After intermission, a concert featuring Frankie Valli (also born in 1937) and The Four Seasons will delight. Can you come, come, come out tonight, er, on Sept, 27? (You-oo-ooh better ask your mama. Tell her everything is all right down at the Civic Center.) Even big girls may cry-yi-yi if they miss this show. All tickets are $75 (get it?) and help benefit more renovation efforts for the facility, so get your preferred seats fast before they say goodbye-yi-yi.
