Our 2023-2034 Broadway Lineup


Johnny Cash: The Official Concert Experience

October 20, 2023 | 7:30 p.m.

The music never stops in Johnny Cash: The Official Concert Experience. Produced in collaboration with the Estate of Johnny Cash, this multi-media celebration is like nothing you’ve seen before. Using state-of-the-art technology, Johnny Cash’s rich, iconic baritone has been lifted from archival concert footage and recordings, enabling the “Man in Black” to perform his biggest hits – “I Walk the Line,” and “Ring of Fire,”– with a live band again! 


Pretty Woman: The Musical

November 19, 2023 | 8:00 p.m.

Based on one of Hollywood’s most beloved romantic stories of all time, Pretty Woman: The Musical springs to life with a powerhouse creative team led by two-time Tony Award®-winning director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell, an original score by Grammy® winner Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance, and a book by the movie’s legendary director Garry Marshall and screenwriter J. F. Lawton. Pretty Woman: The Musical will lift your spirits and light up your heart. Get ready to experience this dazzling theatrical take on a love story for the ages. 


Mean Girls

December 14, 2023 | 7:30 p.m.

Mean Girls is a ferociously funny new musical from an award-winning creative team, including director Casey Nicholaw (Aladdin, The Book of Mormon), composer Jeff Richmond (“30 Rock,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde), and book writer Tina Fey (“30 Rock,” Bossypants). Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naïve newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? 


Come From Away

February 28, 2024 | 7:30 p.m.

On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all. This stirring and inspiring musical takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of the small town in Newfoundland that opened their homes to 7,000 stranded travelers on 9/11. During that fateful week, cultures clashed and nerves ran high—but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night and gratitude grew into enduring friendships. Celebrate the best of humankind and the best in all of us at Come From Away.


On Your Feet! The Story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan 

April 1, 2024 | 7:30 p.m.

Her voice. His vision. Their Story. On Your Feet! is the inspiring true story about heart, heritage and two people who believed in their talent—and each other—to become an international sensation: Gloria and Emilio Estefan. Now, their story is an all-new exhilarating original musical winning the hearts of critics and audiences alike. On Your Feet! features some of the most iconic songs of the past quarter-century, including “Rhythm is Gonna Get You,” “Conga,” “Get On Your Feet,” and more. Prepare to be on your feet from start to finish!

Add on this amazing title!


The Book of Mormon

May 7, 2024 | 7:30 p.m.

The New York Times calls it “the best musical of this century.” The Washington Post says, “It is the kind of evening that restores your faith in musicals.” And Entertainment Weekly says, “Grade A: the funniest musical of all time.” Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show calls it, "Genius. Brilliant. Phenomenal." It’s The Book of Mormon, the nine-time Tony Award®-winning Best Musical.
