The new Eccles Theater is currently serving as the temporary home for the national tour of KINKY BOOTS--a heartfelt exploration of family and friendship. With a Tony-winning pop score, performances bolstered by emotional strength and bravery, and design that is both subtle and bold, this is an unusual show that really works.BWW Review: Pioneer Theatre Company's FENCES is Layered January 10, 2017

The national tour stop of MOTOWN at the Capitol Theatre is another in a series of historic events for Broadway in Utah (recently dubbed Broadway at the Eccles, after its new home). Immediately following its final Salt Lake City performance, the entire production will pack up and move to the Nederlander Theatre in New York City for a limited 18-week Broadway engagement, starting July 12. This means that the performers you see here will also be starring in the show on Broadway, on the same set and wearing the same costumes. It is quite literally Broadway in Utah.BWW Review: NEWSIES at the Capitol Theatre is Mesmerizing June 8, 2016
