Bette Midler presents the Broadway musical: PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT!

With over 500, 2011 Tony Award®-winning costumes, PRISCILLA features a hit parade of dance-floor favorites including "It's Raining Men," "Finally" and "I Will Survive."

The Book of Mormon, February 19-March 3, 2013

Nine 2011 Tony Awards® say it's the Best Musical of the Year. Contains explicit language.

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.

Anything Goes, May 28-June 9, 2013

All aboard for this production of Roundabout Theatre Company's ANYTHING GOES. Presented by Dance St. Louis, ANYTHING GOES is the winner of three 2011 Tony Awards® including Best Musical Revival and Choreography. Cole Porter's first-class musical comedy is sailing to St. Louis, while it continues a run on Broadway. When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention get tossed out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love. Peppering this timeless classic are some of musical theater's most memorable standards, including "I Get a Kick Out of You," "You're the Top" and of course, "Anything Goes."
