With the new year fast approaching, the Jay and Susie Gogue Performing Arts Center at Auburn University has announced its spring 2022 performance schedule.

The spring lineup, which largely consists of rescheduled engagements from the Gogue Center’s inaugural and 2020-21 seasons, will feature nearly two dozen performances from some of the biggest names in rock, jazz, dance and chamber music, along with the highly anticipated return of touring Broadway musicals.

In January, the Gogue Center will present multi-night performances of “Fiddler on the Roof” Jan. 3-4 and “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical” Jan. 29-30, as well as the return of iconoclastic bassist Edgar Meyer, who will be joined by his eclectic quartet, Bush/Marshall/Meyer/Meyer, on Jan. 27.

Dance returns to the center’s Woltosz Theatre in February with two very different yet equally compelling companies taking to the stage: Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenca on Feb. 10 and the Bessie Award-winning Camille A. Brown & Dancers Feb. 18. The month will also include performances by legendary jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis on Feb. 20, the thunderous Japanese drum collective Yamato Feb. 25 and Tony Award-winning singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell with folk-rock group Bonny Light Horseman Feb. 27.

March will feature a mix of the classical and modern. Slated for the month are performances by celebrated French-Canadian chamber orchestra Les Violons du Roy with pianist Jeremy Denk on March 13, Cuban jazz supergroup Alfredo Rodríguez and Pedrito Martinez March 18, the innovative, boundary-stretching Ballet X March 26 and jazz mega-star Kenny G March 29.

In April, the Gogue Center will welcome blue-eyed soul legends The Righteous Brothers on April 23, fronted by Bill Medley and Auburn alumnus Bucky Heard, as well as a performance by breakout star of stage and screen Lauren Patten on April 24.

Winding down in May, the spring 2022 lineup rounds out with the lighter-than-air circus arts spectacle “Air Play” by Acrobuffos on May 13 and is bookended by two additional Broadway musicals—nationally renowned productions of Rodgers & Hammerstein's “OKLAHOMA!” May 17-19 and “Anastasia” May 31-June 1.

Tickets to many spring 2022 performances—particularly the season’s four Broadway shows—are expected to sell out quickly. Patrons are encouraged to secure seats as soon as possible to avoid missing out on their favorite artists and performances.

Tickets purchased for rescheduled performances, including those purchased as part of a subscription package from either the inaugural or 2020-21 seasons, are still valid, and admission will be honored on the rescheduled date. Additional information and details regarding tickets will be sent to all current ticket holders in the coming weeks.
