Disney's Beauty And The Beast
December 4-7, 2014
NETworks presents Disney's Beauty And The Beast, the most beautiful love story ever told, comes to life in this lush, romantic Broadway musical for all generations. Based on the Academy® Award-winning animated feature film, this classic musical love story is filled with unforgettable characters, lavish sets and costumes and dazzling production numbers including "Be Our Guest" and the beloved title song.
January 15-18, 2015
This four-time Tony Award-winning show tells the story of the time-honored legend of King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot and the Knights of the Round Table in an enchanting fable of chivalry, majesty and brotherhood. In Camelot, the legendary King Arthur rules his kingdom with new ideals, bringing peace to a troubled land. When his beautiful new Queen Guinevere and the dashing Sir Lancelot, his most trusted knight, give in to their passions, one of the most fabled love triangles of all time ensues.
"We're excited to be presenting this national tour revival of CAMELOT," League president Mark Edelman said. "It's a great love story, with some of the most soaring ballads in Broadway history. 'If Ever I Would Leave You,' 'How To Handle A Woman,' 'I Loved You Once In Silence'-- it's as romantic as musical theater gets."
Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story
March 12-15, 2015
Before The Beatles or The Rolling Stones ever played a note, rock 'n' roll was forever changed by a 19-year-old kid from Texas. Buddy-The Budy Holly Story tells the true story of Buddy's meteoric rise to fame. The show features all of Holly's greatest hits including "That'll Be the Day," "Peggy Sue" and "Oh, Boy!" It's the next best thing to a concert with Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper.
April 9-12, 2015
Chicago has everything that makes Broadway great: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; 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. Whether you're looking for your first Broadway musical, whether you've seen the Academy® Award-winning film and want to experience the show live on stage or whether you've seen it before and want to recapture the magic, Chicago always delivers.
As a special engagement, the Broadway series will present:
