Byline: Submitted by Judie Katz

Jack Wright gives his audiences a sophisticated, authentic and impassioned performance of the hit songs that have kept Neil Diamond in the hearts of his fans for more than five decades.

The show goes beyond the music when Wright shares stories about Diamond's life, along with explanations of his sometimes complex lyrics. Performing with his Heartlight Showband, Wright will bring his interpretive singing and dynamic stage presence to perform a wide array of timeless hits and fan favorites, including "Cracklin' Rosie," "Hello Again," "Coming to America," "Song Sung Blue," and many more.

Tickets are $35 for adults; $34 for seniors, CLC staff and alumni; and $15 for students and teens. Prices do not include an additional $2 per ticket facility fee.
