Westchester’s Best Events, Outings, Concerts, And Comedy In July

Articles Editor Marisa LaScala’s favorite reasons to get out of the house this month.


July 19

On Her Own

After touring as only one of 10,000 Maniacs recently, Natalie Merchant is seeking to reclaim the spotlight for herself. She released a solo album this year, and called it simply Natalie Merchant. You have two chances to see her live; she’ll be at Tarrytown Music Hall on July 19.

July 17, 18

Swell Season

It’s a good time to be a fan of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. If you count yourself among the admirers, head out to see the Clint Eastwood-directed movie adaptation of Broadway’s Jersey Boys (pictured), which opened on June 20. Then, once you’ve whetted your appetite, see the real thing when Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons come to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester on July 17 and 18.

Classic Comedy

When you think of classical music, you may not always picture it as being a barrel full of laughs, but Igudesman & Joo seek to change that with their family-friendly classical performance, titled “A Little Nightmare Music.” See it as part of the Summer Music Festival at Caramoor Center for Music & the Arts in Katonah. 

July 16

Killer Queens

When it came time for this year’s Grammy Awards, California’s Queens of the Stone Age were nominated alongside Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, David Bowie, Kings of Leon, and Neil Young with Crazy Horse for Best Rock Album—not bad company. (Led Zeppelin took home the prize.) Similarly, that Grammy-nominated album, Like Clockwork, was called “an album truly fit to do battle with the rock classics of any age” by Mojo magazine. High praise? See for yourself when Queens of the Stone Age performs at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester.

It’s a Jolly Holiday with Mary

If the production of Mary Poppins at the Westchester Broadway Theatre in Elmsford seems extra magical, that’s because it is—the show marks the theater’s 40th anniversary. The WBT opened on July 9, 1974, with a production of Kiss Me, Kate, and has hosted 184 main-stage spectacles since. If that isn’t reason enough to go fly a kite, we don’t know what is.
