OCTOBER 9-27, 2013 MUSIC HALL

Back by “Popular” demand. Variety calls WICKED “a cultural phenomenon,” and when it last played Kansas City in 2009, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards®, WICKED is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times). Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One - born with emerald green skin - is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for “the most complete - and completely satisfying new musical in a long time” (USA Today). WICKED is recommended for ages 8+.

Subscribers attend October 9-15. Tuesday evening subscribers will attend WICKED on October 15. Video preview at

JANUARY 21-26, 2014 MUSIC HALL

SISTER ACT is Broadway’s feel-amazing musical comedy smash hit! The New York Post calls it “RIDICULOUSLY FUN,” and audiences are jumping to their feet in total agreement! Featuring original music by eight-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, THE LITTLE MERMAID, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS), SISTER ACT tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime, and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look—a convent. Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. SISTER ACT is family-friendly and recommended for ages 8+ due to its run time and some comic violence.

Y A L P W NE A THRILLINGLY UNIQUE THEATRICAL EPIC IN WHICH ACTORS TELL THE STORY ALONGSIDE LIFELIKE HORSE PUPPETS

APRIL 1-6, 2014 MUSIC HALL

A heart-warming tale of loyalty and friendship, WAR HORSE is the winner of FIVE 2011 Tony Awards®. England, 1914. As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home. This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and around the world. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride. WarHorseOnStage.com WAR HORSE includes scenes depicting some war violence and is recommended for ages 10+. Video preview at
