Arts Commons, Martha Cohen Theatre
A rollicking keyboardist and singer, Marcia Ball is a true original. Famous for her contagious smile, exuberant energy, and Gulf Coast party sound, she’s mastered the art of playful good time blues. The Texas-born, Louisiana-raised roadhouse songstress has taken her groove-laden sound from coast to coast garnering five Blues Music Awards and a Grammy nomination for her 2012 album Roadside Attractions.
“Marcia Ball is a romping, stomping boogie-woogie piano player with a voice made for expressing strong emotions and for singing party songs and telling raucous stories.” – Seattle Pi
Part of PCL Blues presented by Arts Commons.

Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) has been the resident tenant in the courtyard-shaped, Georgian-style Martha Cohen Theatre since 1985. Tiered levels of seats form a three-quarter circle around the performing area eliminating the separation between the audience and performers. The farthest seat from the stage is a mere 39 feet away.
Situated in the heart of Arts Commons beside Jack Singer Concert Hall, Martha Cohen Theatre received state-of-the-art sound upgrade in 2014, as well as all new seats and a new lighting console in 2016, ensuring that it remains at the top of theatre industry standard. The Martha Cohen Theatre was named after the late Dr. Martha Cohen ($1M donated by her husband in honour of her birthday).
