Late Night TV Legend brings stories to Tri-C


CLEVELAND: Musician Paul Shaffer and autobiographer David Ritz will tell stories, play music and share clips from Shaffer’s life in show business as part of the Tri-C Performing Arts Series presented by Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).


The event takes place at 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019, in the Fran and Jules Belkin Theatre at the Gill and Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts, 2809 Woodland Ave. in Cleveland. The center is located at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus.


“It’s rare to have such an intimate event with a music celebrity,” said Terri Pontremoli, director of Tri-C Performing Arts and Tri-C JazzFest. “The audience will feel they’re part of an evening out with friends.”


Shaffer already feels like a friend to the millions who stayed up to watch him on late-night television. He spent 33 years fronting The World’s Most Dangerous Band as David Letterman’s music director and quick-witted sidekick.


He has also recorded with many of the world’s top musicians; served as musical director and producer for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies; appeared in the cult classic film This is Spinal Tap; and voiced a character in a Disney movie.


It all adds up to a career that filled the pages of Shaffer’s best-selling memoir, We’ll Be Here for the Rest of Our Lives, which was co-authored by Ritz.


The book with Shaffer is among more than 36 collaborative autobiographies written by Ritz. (His resume also includes three independent biographies.) As an essayist, he won a Grammy Award for Best Liner Notes for his work on Aretha Franklin’s Queen of Soul: The Atlantic Recordings.


Tickets for the event featuring Shaffer and Ritz range from $5 to $15 and can be purchased at www.tri-c.edu/paulshaffer. If available, tickets can also be bought at the door the night of the program.


Tri-C’s 2019-2020 Performing Arts season features 10 productions showcasing classical piano, jazz and dance. It is designed to bring a world-class artistic experience to the Greater Cleveland community. To learn more, visit www.tri-c.edu/performingarts.
