‘Conversation with Linda Ronstadt’ among offerings of 2018-19 season at Mayo Performing Arts Center

Conversation with Linda Ronstadt

Linda Ronstadt will make an appearance at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in May.

A May “Conversation with Linda Ronstadt” will be among the offerings of the 2018-19 season at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown. The theater’s web site describes the event as a “big screen multi-media journey through the life of Linda Ronstadt, featuring the iconic singer’s personal recounting of her four-decade career, assisted by videos, rare personal photos, and music, including a look at some of the behind-the-scenes events that shaped her uniquely eclectic musical style.”

Among the season’s many other bookings are Vanessa Williams, Kristin Chenoweth, Bernadette Peters, Lyle Lovett, “Elf the Musical,” “Spamalot,” the New Jersey Ballet and New Jersey Symphony Orchestra’s “The Nutcracker,” and “American Girl Live.”

Here is the season’s schedule. Of course, many other shows will be added in the months to come.
