"After months of mystery, the Embassy Theatre revealed Monday the identity of the headliner for its 80th anniversary concert.

It’s actor/comedian Martin Short.

He will perform on the venue’s stage at 8 p.m. May 17."


"“We are very excited to have Martin Short perform at our 80th birthday event,” the Embassy Theatre’s executive director, Kelly Updike, said in an e-mail. “This is special to us because it recalls our roots as a vaudeville stage – Martin Short is an award-winning and popular singer, dancer and comedian – and demonstrates that the Embassy continues to offer current and quality headliner performances.”"
