The Raise-the-Roof Gospel Musical With “Hattitude!” Written by Regina Taylor Adapted from the book by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry Directed by W. Jerome Stevenson

February 7 - 25, 2018 This uplifting celebration connects the love affair African-American women have with their hats to tales that recount memorable occasions in the lives of six women. Crowns is an absolute joy, brimming with witty storytelling and rousing gospel greats, including “His Eye Is On The Sparrow,” “Just A Closer Walk,” “I Shall Wear a Crown,” “When the Saints Go Marching In” and, of course, plenty of “Hattitude.”

The True Story that Became the Tony Award-Winning Musical! Music by Jeanine Tesori Book and Lyrics by Lisa Kron Directed by Michael Baron

April 11 - 29, 2018 Every once in a while, a Broadway musical comes along that surprises, moves and excites audiences in ways only a truly landmark musical can. The “groundbreaking,” “exquisite” and “unforgettable” new musical Fun Home was the event of the Broadway season winning five 2015 Tony Awards® and making history along the way. Based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home introduces us to Alison at three different ages as she explores and unravels the many mysteries of her childhood. A refreshingly honest and decidedly humorous musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. Contains adult language and situations.

World Premiere New Musical! Words by Alana Jacoby Music by Scotty Arnold Directed by Michael Baron

September 26 - October 14, 2018 In the spirit of Lyric’s hit production, The Who’s Tommy, When We’re Gone is a rock musical that follows Todd, an angst-ridden teen, in plague-ridden, 14th-century London and his desire to make great art in a time of great need. This wildly creative new musical strikes a brilliant balance of modern day characters, a pop-punk score and the life-changing events of 1349. Anyone who has ever wondered what life is all about will be enlightened, entertained and amazed.

“A vibrant arts institution adds to the canon of musical theatre, and we are proud to premiere ‘When We’re Gone’ in Oklahoma.” – Michael Baron Subscribe Now for Priority Seating!
