Landmark on Main Street has announced its 2022-23 season, offering audiences in Port Washington and the surrounding areas the opportunity to experience over 40 live music, comedy and theater performances.

The season lineup includes multiple Grammy Award winners, Tony winners and nominees and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers. The season starts with an impressive September lineup including comedian Maria Bamford on Sep. 10, funk legend George Porter Jr. & Runnin’ Pardners on Sep. 16, Kathleen Edwards Sep. 21, Gangstagrass Sep. 23, James Hunter Six Sep. 24, Delfeayo Marsalis Quintet Sep. 29 and Rufus Wainwright Sep. 30.

Long-time favorites such as Judy Collins Dec. 3, Cherish the Ladies Dec. 4 and Darlene Love Feb. 10 will return to the theater. The season also boasts a diverse lineup of acts never seen in Port Washington, including Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn Oct. 16, Valerie June Nov. 4 and Zoê Keating Feb. 17.

Fleck has won 15 Grammy Awards, while the duo of Fleck and Washburn recently won the Grammy Award for Best Folk Album. Landmark’s new All That Jazz series features Marsalis, Bettye LaVette & Raul Midón Feb. 18 and two more shows that will be announced soon.

New in 2022-23, Landmark will present general admission standing room concerts including George Porter Jr, Pink Talking Fish on Oct. 21 and Friends of the Brothers on Jan. 27.

These shows use the new moveable seating of the Jeanne Rimsky Theater, allowing audiences to get up close to the action and move to the music. A second bar has also been added to the theater to help Landmark better serve audiences.

The always popular children’s shows include Sonia de Los Santos (Oct. 8) and Lightwire Theater’s The Ugly Duckling (Mar. 11), with more shows to be announced soon.

Landmark will continue presenting a wide range of free community programming, including Afternoon TEA on Wednesdays at 2 p.m., a Hispanic Heritage Celebration in October and a Lunar New Year Celebration in February.

The 2022-23 season is the first season fully scheduled by Landmark’s new Executive Director, Richard Mayer, who worked in the live entertainment industry in New Orleans for over 10 years before joining Landmark. “This is an exciting time for Landmark. Folk music and roots rock have always been the foundation of our programming and we’re so excited to be offering jazz, funk, soul and more. We’re a space for the whole community and I think this season offers something for everyone.”

Landmark’s new Music Advisory Council, a group of music lovers and professionals from the Port Washington area, helped Mayer. “The Jeanne Rimsky Theater has undergone tremendous improvements over the past year,” says Mayer. “We’ve improved the acoustics, changed up the seating, upgraded our lights and added a new lobby bar.”

Our 2021-22 Season is made possible thanks to our Partners in Performing Arts: Harding Real Estate, Peter & Jeri Dejana Family Foundation, Town of North Hempstead, New York State Council on the Arts and Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock.
