Three other events also have been added to the Santander Arena lineup: CoComelon Live! JJ's Journey on Dec. 6, World Championship Ice Racing on Jan. 27 and the Jo Koy World Tour on March 9. Tickets are on sale at
Hailed as one of the highest-earning stand-up comedians of 2019 by Forbes, Hart sold out over 100 arenas around the world on his previous tour.

The WCR Center for the Arts, 140 N. Fifth St., will host an exclusive screening of the Emmy nominated New York Times Op-Docs documentary "Takeover" on Oct. 8 at 2 and 7 p.m.
"Takeover" explores the 12 historic hours on July 14, 1970, in which 50 members of the Young Lords Party stormed the dilapidated Lincoln Hospital in the South Bronx, drove out their administrative staff, and barricaded entrances and windows, and made their cries for decent healthcare known to the world. They raised the Puerto Rican flag atop the building and a banner reading "The People's Hospital" — a nom de guerre still used today.
Through archival footage, seamless reenactments and modern-day interviews, the film follows the Young Lords' resistance against institutions curated by wealth and white supremacy, and their fight for the most basic of human rights: the right to accessible, quality healthcare.
The 2 p.m. screening will be a Free Community Partner/Public Screening with a talkback panel moderated by Patty Torres, organizing director of Make the Road PA.
The 7 p.m. screening is a ticketed event ($35) and includes a talkback panel moderated by Anthony Orozco (Latino Communities Reporter for WITF), and a meet and greet reception with director Emma Francis-Snyder, producer Tony Gerber and one of the original Young Lords.
