SOPAC: New Voices, New Shows + More!




New Shows on Sale, and More Holiday Shows Ahead







America's Got Talent finalist Jimmie Herrod brings his singular vocal power to SOPAC in his first New York/NJ area show of 2023.





"Far ranging sonic nomad" AKENYA makes her SOPAC and NJ debut as the anchor of our first ever LGBTQ+ Pride weekend! In her decade-plus career, AKENYA has emerged as a songwriter and singer deftly moving among Jazz, Hip-Hop, and R&B influences. Following the performance, there will be a VIP Pride After Party in the SOPAC Loft where you can dance the night away with AKENYA and other VIP guests.





New Date! SAT, APR 1 at 1PM

Breathtaking, mind-blowing and astonishing are just a few words that describe The Heart & Soul of Magic. This show features two world-class magicians, Ran’D Shine and Jamahl Keyes, in a unique production that weaves a tapestry of psychological illusions, comedy and music to create an immersive amazing experience that will keep you at the edge of your seat.
