A BRONX TALE: November 5 – 10, 2019

Broadway’s hit crowd-pleaser takes you to the stoops of the Bronx in the 1960s – where a young man is caught between the father he loves and the mob boss he’d love to be.

 

Bursting with high-energy dance numbers and original doo-wop tunes from Alan Menken, the songwriter of Beauty and the Beast, A BRONX TALE is an unforgettable story of loyalty and family. 

 

Based on Academy Award nominee Chazz Palminteri’s story, this streetwise musical has The New York Times hailing it as “A Critic’s Pick! The kind of tale that makes you laugh and cry.”

 

COME FROM AWAY: January 14 – 19, 2020

 

This New York Times Critic’s Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them.  Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

 

Don’t miss this breathtaking new musical written by Tony® nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by this year’s Tony®-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley.  Newsweek cheers, “It takes you to a place you never want to leave!”

 

On 9/11, the world stopped.

 

On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

 

MEAN GIRLS:  February 11 – 16, 2020

 

Direct from Broadway, MEAN GIRLS is the hilarious hit musical from an award-winning creative team, including book writer Tina Fey (“30 Rock”), composer Jeff Richmond (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and director Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon).

 

Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois.  Soon, this naïve newbie falls prey to a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George.  But when Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.

 

New York Magazine cheers, “MEAN GIRLS delivers with immense energy, a wicked sense of humor and joyful inside-jokery.”  USA Today says, “We’ll let you in on a little secret, because we’re such good friends: GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!”

 

THE BAND’S VISIT: April 7 – 12, 2020
 

Spend an evening in the company of unforgettable strangers at THE BAND’S VISIT – now one of the most celebrated musicals ever.  It rejoices in the way music brings us to life, brings us to laughter, brings us to tears, and ultimately, brings us together. 

In an Israeli desert town where every day feels the same, something different is suddenly in the air.  Dina, the local café owner, had long resigned her desires for romance to daydreaming about exotic films and music from her youth.  When a band of Egyptian musicians shows up lost at her café, she and her fellow locals take them in for the night.  Under the spell of the night sky, their lives intertwine in unexpected ways and this once sleepy town begins to wake up. 

THE BAND’S VISIT features music and lyrics by Tony® Award and Drama Desk Award winner David Yazbek, and a book by Tony®, NY Drama Critics Circle, Lortel and Outer Critics Circle Awards winner Itamar Moses.  IT is based on the screenplay by Eran Kolirin, and is directed by Tony®, Drama Desk, Lortel and Obie Award winner David Cromer. 
 

ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE: April 28 – May 3, 2020

Welcome to Margaritaville, where people come to get away from it all – and stay to find something they never expected.  ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE is the musical comedy featuring both original songs and your most-loved JIMMY BUFFET classics, including “Fins,” “Volcano,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and many more.  USA Today calls it “A little slice of paradise!” and Entertainment Weekly raves, “It will knock your flip-flops off!” So don’t let the party start without you. 
 

MY FAIR LADY: May 19 – 24, 2020

From Lincoln Center Theater that brought you The King and I and South Pacific, comes “a sumptuous new production of the most perfect musical of all time” (Entertainment Weekly), Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY.  Director Bartlett Sher’s glowing production is “thrilling, glorious and better than it ever ways” (The New York Times).  “Every so often a revival comes along that reminds you how indispensable great theater can be” (NY1).

 

Boasting such classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “On the Street Where You Live,” MY FAIR LADY tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.” But who is really being transformed?

 

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR: June 2 – 7, 2020

 

An album that inspired a REVOLUTION.  A REVELATION that changed the world.  A REINVENTION for this millennium.

 

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is an iconic musical phenomenon with a worldwide fan base.  In celebration of its 50th Anniversary, a new mesmerizing production comes to North America.  Originally staged by London’s Regent Park Open Air Theatre and helmed by the acclaimed director Timothy Sheader (Crazy for You, Into the Woods) and award winning choreographer Drew McOnie (King Kong, Strictly Ballroom), this production won the 2017 Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival garnering unprecedented reviews and accolades.  Appealing to both theater audiences and concert music fans, this production pays tribute to the historic 1971 Billboard Album of the Year while creating a modern, theatrical world that is uniquely fresh and inspiring.

 

With music and lyrics by Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony® winners Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary series of events during the final weeks in the life of Jesus Christ as seen through the eyes of Judas.  Reflecting the rock roots that defined a generation, the legendary score includes “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” “Gethsemane” and “Superstar”.
