Newsies

STRAIGHT FROM THE HEADLINES of turn of the century New York comes the true story that had Broadway roaring before it even opened. Featuring unforgettable songs audiences have fallen in love with again and again and a story that will make you want to stand up and cheer, Newsies is the perfect show to open up our ninth season.

High in the skyscrapers of New York City, Joseph Pulitzer is plotting a way to increase the revenue of his declining newspaper; while down in the streets, newsboys hawk papers on corners barely making enough to survive. When Pulitzer raises the price of the paper, delivery boy Jack Kelly organizes a strike to show Pulitzer and his gang of cronies they’re not going to be pushed into the gutter.

Based on the 1992 movie, Newsies is a rousing musical nominated for 8 Tony Awards, winning Best Choreography and Best Score. Featuring music from Alan Menken, the 8-time Oscar-winning genius behind scores from some of the most popular Disney films of all time, including AladdinThe Little Mermaid, Pocahontas and Beauty and the BeastNewsies is refreshing, inspirational and a huge feel-good show for the whole family. Want good news? Then you want Newsies.

Beauty and the Beast

WHAT IS BEAUTY? Join us as we step inside this classic storybook fairytale and discover that beauty isn’t always as it appears.

Once upon a time on a bitter winter’s night, a young, selfish and vain prince finds a beggar woman asking for shelter. Disgusted by her appearance, he sends her away. The old woman transforms into a magical enchantress who places a curse upon the prince to
appear as hideous on the outside as he is on the inside. Given a magical rose, he must learn to love and find love in return before the last petal drops, or he is doomed to remain a beast forever. But who could ever learn to love a beast?

One of Disney’s most beloved animated films comes to life on stage with all the enchanted castle characters in a holiday extravaganza that will thrill, entertain and amaze young and old alike. Be our guest this holiday season, and celebrate the power and wonder of theater with us and our two-story Christmas tree in a lobby decorated to create memories that last a lifetime.

The Secret of My Success

IS SUCCESS MONEY? A powerful job? A happy marriage? Join us for the World Premiere of The Secret of My Success, a hilarious, heartfelt new musical based on Universal Pictures film.

Brantley Foster, a young ambitious midwesterner, moves to New York City to start his dream job at a major corporation, only to be laid off on the very first day. In his relentless enthusiasm to succeed, Brantley finds himself tangled up in a sidesplitting scheme in which he assumes the identity of a rising executive named Carlton Whitfield.

As he climbs the corporate ladder, tirelessly concealing his identity, Brantley soon falls in love with a beautiful colleague named Christy Mendez and discovers that his definition of success might be all wrong. Will he get the job, win at love or just get caught?

Adapted from the smash 1987 Michael J. Fox movie that stayed at the top of the box office for 5 consecutive weeks, The Secret of My Success is a wild look at corporate culture, ambition and making your own way in life, all told with an outstanding score by Chicago favorites Mahler and Schmuckler, big production numbers and a book that will have you laughing all the way home. Be the first to see AND hear it.

Kinky Boots

A MIDWEST REGIONAL PREMIERE! This flashy, sassy, sexy story of big heels invading a small town shook Broadway and was universally adored by critics and audiences. Now it’s Paramount’s turn to try these shoes on for size.

Charlie Price is a reluctant shoe maker. Lola is a fierce drag queen. These two could not be any more different, but when they find common ground in shoes, they see a whole new world of possibilities open up to them that will turn their small town upside down, and just might save Charlie’s failing shoe factory.

With a Tony Award-winning score by Grammy Award winner Cyndi Lauper and a book by Harvey Fierstein (Tony Award-winning star of Broadway’s Hairspray), Kinky Boots tears up the stage and never lets go. From its glorious costumes to its dizzyingly tall heels and songs you’ll be humming for days, no show on Broadway has captured what it means to do what you love and love what you do as much as Kinky Boots.
