A new Broadway-bound musical based on the award-winning children's novel by Kate DiCamillo, BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE is poised to become the first Broadway musical starring a live dog as the main character! A gentle, warm and enthralling story about the intimate friendship between a young girl and her dog, WINN DIXIE shows how the smallest act of kindness can ripple into a celebration of community. Was there a family pet that taught you how to love and forgive? Tickets will sell fast for this show-the only way to guarantee seats is to subscribe. Young and old, alike, will find their lives changed...because of Winn Dixie. Check out a sneak peek at the cast and creatives in rehearsal below!

What Bud has to say: I would never have thought of kids, a dog and Duncan Sheik in the same sentence, but Duncan's wonderful blend of alternative rock and melancholy, mixed with a taste of the South is extraordinary. Coupled with Nell Benjamin's intelligent book and lyrics, and for the first time in theatre history, a dog being a principal character in the staging, BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE promises to break new ground in the theatre and provide wonderful family entertainment.
