Lincoln Theater presents an evening of storytelling and dance from Korinn Mowrey. During “A Dancer’s Journey to Live,” Mowrey unravels her story of overcoming addiction to find success. Mowrey’s focus is on the art of manifestation as she takes audience members through the time in her life when she was a professional dancer and also when she was struggling with anorexia nervosa. Through spoken word, movement and laughter, Mowrey has found a way to let her light shine.

Catch the Broadway national tour of a musical set in a small town in Newfoundland. “Come From Away” is based on the true story of how residents opened their homes to 7,000 travelers on one of the worst days in American history: Sept. 11, 2011. For one week, humanity shined brightly as friendships were formed, nerves were calmed and refuge was offered during a time of extreme stress and fear. Musical numbers include “Welcome To The Rock,” “Blankets and Bedding” and “Lead Us Out of the Night.”
