CHICAGO Nov. 7-12, 2023
After 25 years, "Chicago" is still the one musical with everything that makes Broadway shimmy-shake: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz, with one show-stopping song after another and the most astonishing dancing you've ever seen. No wonder "Chicago" has been honored with six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy and thousands of standing ovations. As the show celebrates our 25th anniversary — you've got to come see why the name on everyone's lips is still..."Chicago"
MEAN GIRLS Dec. 5-10, 2023
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!"
