Due to popular demand, the Center for the Performing Arts has added a second performance when Croce Plays Croce comes to the Tarkington on March 19.

The production features singer-songwriter A.J. Croce paying tribute to his late father, Jim Croce, a folk-pop singer who died in a 1973 plane crash while his star was still on the rise. Along with such hits as “Operator,” “You Don’t Mess Around with Jim” and “Time in a Bottle” (written for A.J. himself), the performances will include the younger Croce’s original material and other classic songs that influenced both artists.

The 8 p.m. show at the 500-seat theater is sold out. The new 5 p.m. show is on sale now, with tickets at $55 and $65, a selection of student/youth tickets at $15, and discounts for military personnel and first responders. Tickets are available at the Palladium Box Office, online at TheCenterPresents.org and by phone at (317) 843-3800.
