Garrison Keillor at 80 with Heather Masse & Richard Dworsky

September 14 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$47.50 – $62.50

Get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey with none other than the legendary Garrison Keillor at 80, alongside the enchanting Heather Masse and the incomparable Richard Dworsky! Coming to the Paramount Hudson Valley on September 14, this show promises an evening filled with music, stories, and stand-up all centered around the theme of cheerfulness — because, as Keillor himself knows, happiness may be influenced by circumstance, but cheerfulness is a choice we make.
Experience the magic as Keillor shares his sung sonnets like “Prayer,” “Longevity,” and “Love Song,” each one a glimpse into the depth of his soul. Joined by the talented Heather Masse, they’ll serenade you with enchanting duets, bringing to life the timeless melodies of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Tom Waits, Greg Brown, Mark Knopfler, and Ann Reed. But that’s not all; prepare to be swept away by an extended medley of sung classic poems and jokes, leaving you laughing and tapping your toes in delight. Of course, no Garrison Keillor show would be complete without the beloved News from Lake Wobegon. Through his reflections on his generation, a generation that knew the simplicity of outhouses, the nostalgia of hitchhiking, and the thrill of skating on outdoor rinks, Keillor will transport you back to a time filled with laughter and camaraderie. But perhaps the most heartwarming moment of the evening awaits as Keillor invites the audience to join him in an impromptu a cappella medley of familiar tunes. From “America” to “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” and “In My Life” to “Going to the Chapel,” each note sung resonates with a sense of shared history and nostalgia. As Keillor poignantly puts it, “We are the last generation who knows all the words. When we’re gone, they’ll disappear.” So come, be a part of this unforgettable evening, and let’s revel in the joy of music, laughter, and timeless memories with Garrison Keillor at 80. *As a reminder, no outside food or drink permitted in the venue.
