He has a quick-witted, fast-paced style that envelops you with an avalanche of punchlines that never stop. He is chaotic, cathartic, and a complainer. But the deeper he delves into his show the more you relate to him, root for him, and feel his pain just as he relives it, night after night. That’s Vince’s greatest gift, his ability to instantly connect with the everyman (and every woman). He sees the absurdities of the world and he rallies against them. Vince says the things on stage you would only dare to speak in a mumbling, hushed tone when no one else was within earshot.  Vince has been seen on TBS and heard on Chicago’s Mancow in the Morning radio show, and WGN Radio. He has released 5 hour-long comedy albums and he runs a podcast called “Peek Behind the Curtain”. This guy hits on all cylinders.  He was the winner of the 2019 “Best of the Midwest” Competition at Gilda’s Laughfest.  Vince’s show is filled with genuine, heartfelt laughs. He’s fast, he’s furious and he is funny. It’s not just a wild ride. It’s a journey. It’s a whirlwind of ranting, raving, and refreshing material. No matter the price, Vince Carone is worth the admission. —–Don’t forget to become a RaueNOW Member to save up to 30% on 2 of your tickets! Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.

LET IT BEPresented by Shani FamilySaturday, August 6, 2022, at 5:00 PMTicket Price:VIP: $60.00General Admission (Main Floor): $20General Admission (Balcony): $15Seniors & Students: $15An evening in celebration of Dance!Prashant Shah, a senior disciple of Padma Bhushan Smt. Kumudini Lakhia, is one of few critically acclaimed male performer-choreographers based in Ahmedabad and New York City. Prashant’s virtuosity in Kathak makes him one of the outstanding male dancers of his genre today. The first recipient (for Kathak dance) of Sangeet Natak Akademi’s Yuva Puraskar award established by the President of India in the name of legendary musician, Ustad Bismillah Khan, Prashant is also a TOP grade artiste at ‘Doordarshan Kendra’ and an empaneled artiste in the established category of Indian Council for Cultural Relations, New Delhi. Often commissioned internationally to work with other dance styles like Hip Hop, Belly Dancing, Flamenco, Bharatanatyam, Modern and Contemporary dance, he has received rave reviews in newspapers such as The Hindu, Statesman, New York Times, Star Ledger, Guardian, San Francisco Chronicle, and Dancing Times. Prashant is one of the few acclaimed Kathak dancers to benefit from his Guru Padma Bhushan Kumudini Lakhia’s system which involves rigorous training while also encouraging to use dance as a mode of self-expression to scratch beyond the surface of technique. His highly developed awareness of space and its possibilities of exploring it visually in Kathak dance form along with his own traditional and contemporary ideas, drives him to work with other dance forms. Prashant’s work mainly focuses on Kathak traditional technique and repertoire but at the same time, he firmly believes there is always a scope of change and progress with current times to introduce new movements and rhythmic patterns. For this, few of his choreographies incorporate contemporary ideas within the framework of pure Kathak form.This program is a rental.——Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.Processing Fee – A $3 per ticket charge for all purchasing to support the software that enables online ticket sales.Facility Fee – A $6 per order charge that helps operate and invest back in our historical venue.For more information, please visit rauecenter.org.Updated safety policy 5.23.22: Masks are no longer required for most shows, but are recommended.
