Join us to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the United Palace, one of five famed "Loews Wonder Theatres," on February 22, 2020 with a concert featuring the legendary singer, songwriter and performer Ms. Lauryn Hill. The concert will be the first of several anniversary events commemorating the venue’s long history – first as a vaudeville and deluxe movie house, followed by its transformation into the Home of Spiritual Artistry and theater.
Ms. Lauryn Hill headlines this anniversary celebration with her debut performance at the United Palace. Ms. Lauryn Hill established a reputation in the music world as the lone female member of The Fugees. She launched her solo career with the release of her critically-acclaimed album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which won multiple awards, including a record breaking five Grammy Awards, and found commercial success.
