Main Stage

Broadway Stars · Virtuosic Musicians · Emberlight’s First Play

The Emberlight Main Stage brings unforgettable performances to your backyard with a summer of show-stopping concerts and our first full-length play.

Buyer and Cellar, a deliciously witty one-man play starring Emberlight Artistic Director Miles Mykkanen, follows Alex, an out-of-work, aspiring actor hired for a mysterious job at the home of the legendary Barbra Streisand. The New York Times calls Jonathan Tolins’ play a “seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy.”

Miles Mykkanen and Adam Rothenberg — the singer and pianist duo that brought you Sing Happy last summer — return to Emberlight for a new cabaret… with a twist! Characters promises a fun, spontaneous, unique evening of musical hilarity as the duo performs fan-favorite songs from some of theater’s most memorable characters. 

World-class soprano Ann Toomey is back by popular demand as guest headliner for one of Emberlight’s 2023 Main Stage concerts! This one-night-only recital-style event will feature a mix of opera, classical music and popular songs in an elegant evening of gorgeous music. 

Showstoppers: The Emberlight Grand Finale will wrap up the 2023 season with the biggest night of the summer! Celebrate the close of the festival with award presentations, prizes, exciting Emberlight news and sensational performances by guest soloists appearing alongside pianists Adam Rothenberg.
