Great Scott! Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown from "Back to the Future") revs up the excitement to 88 MPH in an electrifying show filled with anecdotes about the making of the box-office hit. In "Christopher Lloyd Goes Back to the Future," the actor shares behind-the-scenes tales and his experience working with Michael J. Fox and Steven Spielberg. A screening of the iconic film will be followed by an audience-led Q&A on Friday, February 9 at 8 p.m. Ticket prices cost $95 to $75.

In a high-energy, live powerhouse act crammed with wall-to-wall hits from Boston (the No. One "Amanda," "More Than a Feeling" and "Peace of Mind") and Styx ("Lady," "Renegade" and "Come Sail Away"), the group BOSTYX rocks the CCPA on Saturday, February 10 at 8 p.m. The show features David Victor, former guitarist-vocalist of Boston. Tickets cost $65 to $35.

"It's Magic!" is "a must for magic buffs of all ages," raved the "Los Angeles Times." Featuring an all-new cast of award-winning performers from around the world, including Hollywood's Magic Castle and Las Vegas, the extravaganza will leave audiences speechless and spellbound with sleight-of-hand illusions, stage tricks, and comedy and variety acts on Sunday, February 11 at 3 p.m. Ticket prices are $70 to $55.

A young soprano who charmed a nation with her powerful performance on "America's Got Talent," Jackie Evancho has since ruled the "Billboard" charts with the albums "Songs From the Silver Screen" and "Dream With Me." The Classical crossover singer performs on Friday, February 16 at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $110 to $70.

Country legends Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan team up in a loosely scripted concert filled with good-natured ribbing, off-the-cuff remarks and hits on Saturday, February 17 at 8 p.m. Grammy winner Tillis, the Country Music Association's "Female Vocalist of 1994," has delighted scores of fans with the smash hits "Don't Tell Me What to Do" and "Mi Vida Loca (My Crazy Life)." Morgan rocked with "Trainwreck of Emotion" and "What Part of No." Tickets cost $75 to $35.

In the 1970s, the Rock band Queen dominated the music scene with "Bohemian Rhapsody," "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions." The "One Night of Queen" tribute at 7 p.m. on Sunday, February 18 celebrates the timeless music and legend of the group that was named to VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock." Ticket prices are $75 to $55.

The smash-hit musical "Million Dollar Quartet" is inspired by the recording session that united Rock 'n' Roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first (and only) time. On December 4, 1956, the famous four gathered for what would turn out to be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. Featuring the songs "Blue Suede Shoes," "Walk the Line," "Great Balls of Fire" and "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," the musical takes audiences inside the recording studio for one historic music-making night. The musical is presented by 3-DT, the CCPA's Broadway Performance Partner.
