Magic Theatre’s “Sheparding America” celebration continues with the revival of our homegrown, Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, Buried Child, directed by Loretta Greco. Yearning for the comfort of his idealized Midwestern roots, Vince returns to the family’s homestead to find a very different kind of inheritance — proving that there is, indeed, no place like home.

Buried Child emerges as a play for the ages.”—The New York Times

According to Filter Magazine: "It is so easy to fall in love with Estonian group, Ewert and the Two Dragons. In fact, we enjoyed listening to them so much we just had to have them play at our Culture Collide last year! Now they're coming back to the states in support of the US release of their second album, Good Man Down, on June 25 via Sire/ADA.

It really is no surprise to us that since the album's European release in 2011, the band has received a great amount of praise. They have won plenty of awards in their own country along with the European Border Breakers Award that honored them as a best new act in Europe.

With so much critical acclaim, you can be sure this is a show not to be missed! You can check out the tour dates below and make plans ahead now for what is sure to be a great show!"
