In the final show of the James Lumber Center for the Performing Arts' 2018/2019 Professional Series, Jack Wright's "Songs and Stories of Neil Diamond: A Contemporary Tribute," comes to the James Lumber Center's Mainstage Theatre on the College of Lake County's Grayslake Campus at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 4.

Wright gives his audiences a sophisticated, authentic and impassioned performance of the hit songs that have kept Neil Diamond in the hearts of his fans for more than five decades. The show goes beyond the music, when Wright shares stories about Diamond's life, along with explanations of his sometimes complex lyrics. Performing with his Heartlight Showband, Wright will bring his interpretive singing and dynamic stage presence to perform a wide array of timeless hits and fan favorites, including "Cracklin' Rosie," "Hello Again," "Coming to America," "Song Sung Blue," and many more.
