Bill Murray to perform at Worcester’s Hanover Theatre

Actor and comedian Bill Murray

We’re not sure what to expect when Bill Murray joins cellist Jan Vogler at Worcester’s Hanover Theatre in April.

The show, which will also include violinist Mira Wang and pianist Vanessa Perez, is billed as an evening of music, poetry and prose. Apparently the evening will showcase the words of Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, and Walt Whitman, and the music of Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, and Stephen Foster.

Murray and Vogler, who met when the former “SNL” cast member made some wisecracks about Vogler’s cello as the two were making their way through airport security, released an album, “New Worlds,” in 2017.


Tickets for the April 22 show in Worcester are priced between $45 and $150. Here’s a clip of the duo doing their thing on Stephen Colbert’s show.
