War Horse, March 13-24, 2013
Winner of 5 2011 Tony Awards®, including Best Play, War Horse is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship set in England in 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. This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. 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. War Horse is being presented by The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis and will be offered as a special to their subscribers.
Million Dollar Quartet, April 23-May 5, 2013
MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is the Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical, inspired by the true story of the famed recording session that brought together rock 'n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time. On December 4, 1956, these four young musicians were gathered together by Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll" at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions of all time. MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET brings that legendary night to life with an irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets, betrayal and celebrations featuring timeless hits including "Blue Suede Shoes," "Fever," "Great Balls of Fire," "I Walk the Line," "Hound Dog" and more.
