Lakeland welcomes First Aid Kit
with special guest Samantha Crain
In the past six years, much has changed for the Swedish duo First Aid Kit. Sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg had been earning a stellar reputation recording and performing as a teenaged duo in Sweden when their 2008 cover of Fleet Foxes' "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" started turning heads around the world, racking up millions of views on YouTube and earning them big-name fans in far off lands. In 2010, they released their debut LP, 'The Big Black & The Blue,' which prompted critical raves and dates with everyone from Patti Smith and Jack White to Lykke Li and Bright Eyes.
Here is the schedule for the night of the show:
- 4:30 p.m. — Will call opens in the lobby of the Bradley Theatre (see the map below). If you asked that your tickets be held at Will Call, you can pick them up beginning at 4:30 p.m.

- 6:45 p.m. — Theatre doors open

The Broadway Musical
"What good is sitting alone in your room? Come, hear the music play. Life is a Cabaret old chum; come to the Cabaret."
Sung by nightclub singer Sally Bowles (played in the movie by Liza Minnelli), these words entice us to a fantasy world inside the Kit Kat Klub which includes music, laughter, and pure denial of what is going on outside its doors: the rise of Nazi Germany. On the surface, Cabaret satirically indicts the Third Reich but, underneath the vivacious music, we discover the line between fantasy and reality, between despair and hope.
Performances of Cabaret will be March 26-29, 2015.
