Nov. 8-13—RUTLAND— The Paramount Theatre is packed with events this week, with five options for theatergoers.

Thursday, Nov. 8

Rescheduled due to an illness back in September, the legendary Temptations will perform a show on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 8 p.m. With over 40 years of success and 37 Top 40 hits to their credit, the Temptations are one of the most successful groups in music history. Tickets purchased for the original September show will be honored for this show.

Friday, Nov. 9

The stage looks to laughs Friday, Nov. 9, with comedian Kathleen Madigan at 8 p.m. For 29 years, Madigan has been touring 250 nights on the road and squeezing in hour-long filmed specials and performances on every late night show ever made. From 25 appearances on the Tonight Show and multiple appearances on Letterman and Conan to recently riding around with Jerry Seinfeld in his internet series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Madigan is still having a blast and selling out theaters across the country. Tickets are $35.

Saturday, Nov. 10

Tribute band Tusk will perform Saturday, Nov. 10 at 8 p.m. Tusk performs as the No. 1  Tribute to Fleetwood Mac in the world, bar none. No wigs, no backing tracks, no gimmicks –  just five musicians recreating the music of Fleetwood Mac to perfection with note for note renditions that no other Fleetwood Mac tribute on the touring scene today can come close to duplicating. Tickets are $29-$39.

Sunday, Nov. 11

Live from the Metropolitan Opera returns Sunday, Nov. 11, with a 12:55 p.m. encore performance of Nico Muhly’s “Marnie.” Muhly unveils his second new opera for the Met with this gripping reimagining of Winston Graham’s novel, set in the 1950s, about a beautiful, mysterious young woman who assumes multiple identities. It’s a fast-moving, exhilarating story of denial and deceit, perfect for a Sunday afternoon. Run time is about 3 hours, with a 30-minute intermission. Tickets are $10 for students, and $23 for adults.

Tuesday, Nov. 13

Rounding out the week on Tuesday, Nov. 13, Kris Collet and Damn It All, a Rutland band, kick off the Brick Box Live series with host George Nostrand, a music showcase, video recorded in front of a live studio audience, at the Brick Box at Paramount. In addition to the live performance, audience members get the behind-the-curtain look at the taping of the show. Tickets are $10.
