So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. WICKED, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.” With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular,” and “For Good,” WICKED has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade.” Time Magazine cheers, “if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of WICKED, Broadway really would be a magical place.” Please Note: WICKED has a unique subscription performance schedule, which affects Series A (Friday) and Series F (Tuesday) subscribers. WICKED’s subscription performance schedule is Wednesday, September 21 at 7P (Series G), Thursday, September 22 at 7P (Series H), Friday, September 23 at 8P (Series A)*, Saturday, September 24 at 2P (Series C) & 8P (Series B), Sunday, September 25 at 1P (Series D) & 6:30P (Series E), and Tuesday, September 27 at 7P (Series F)•.

Bartlett Sher is reunited with the award-winning creative team from South Pacific and The Light in the Piazza.

eight pesky relatives (all played by one fearless man) who stand in his way. All the while, Monty has to juggle his mistress (she’s after more than just love), his fiancée (she’s his cousin but who’s keeping track?), and the constant threat of landing behind bars! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance… and be done in time for tea.

Coming direct from New York, where a most gentlemanly NPR critic said he’d “never laughed so hard at a Broadway musical," GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by – you guessed it – eliminating the

The Hollywood Reporter raves, “GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE restores our faith in musical comedy” and The New York Times cheers, “It will lift the hearts of all those who’ve been pining for what sometimes seems a lost art form.”

"REJOICE. It is even more glorious than promised.” - New York Times

“Welcome to the deliriously amusing, heartwarming, head-spinning world of MATILDA THE MUSICAL. You won’t want to leave.” – Bloomberg News

TIME Magazine’s #1 Show of the Year! Winner of 50 international awards, including four Tony Awards®, MATILDA THE MUSICAL is the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

June 2 – 4, 2017

"Without any doubt, RIVERDANCE is absolutely smashing, the sort of spectacle and experience that comes along once in a lifetime. Something like Halley's Comet, only rarer." - Hollywood Reporter

The quintessential backstage musical comedy classic, 42ND STREET is the song and dance fable of Broadway with an American Dream story and includes some of the greatest songs ever written, such as “We’re In The Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “Shuffle Off To Buffalo,” “Dames,” “I Only Have Eyes For You,” and of course “42nd Street.”

The international Irish dance phenomenon is back by popular demand in RIVERDANCE - The 20th Anniversary World Tour. Drawing on Irish traditions, the combined talents of the performers propel Irish dancing and music into the present day, capturing the imagination of audiences across all ages and cultures in an innovative and exciting blend of dance, music, and song. Of all the performances to emerge from Ireland - in rock, music, theatre, and film - nothing has carried the energy, the sensuality, and the spectacle of RIVERDANCE.

Based on a novel by Bradford Ropes and Busby Berkeley’s 1933 movie, 42ND STREET tells the story of a starry-eyed young dancer named Peggy Sawyer who leaves her Allentown home and comes to New York to audition for the new Broadway musical Pretty Lady. When the leading lady breaks her ankle, Peggy takes over and becomes a star. With a book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, music by Harry Warren and lyrics by Al Dubin, this sparkling new production will be directed by co-author Mark Bramble and choreographed by Randy Skinner, the team who staged the 2001 Tony Award®-winning Best Musical Revival.

RIVERDANCE - The 20th Anniversary World Tour is composed by Bill Whelan, produced by Moya Doherty, and directed by John McColgan, and comes directly to North America from a sold out run across Europe and Asia.
