Maltz Jupiter Theatre Announces 2018/19 Season of Shows

It's time to bring art to life with the Maltz Jupiter Theatre's 2018/19 season!

The 2018/19 season will begin with Steel Magnolias (October 28 - November 11), a beloved American comedy/drama that examines the complexities of six women's lives as they navigate love, loss and the fierceness of friendship. We continue with Disney Beauty and the Beast (November 27 - December 16), the spectacular and timeless Broadway blockbuster that tells the story of a tenacious beauty who meets a prince-turned-beast. Next up is a big splashy Broadway musical set to be announced April 1: a Tony Award®-nominated smash hit that will have audiences dancing in their seats (January 15 - February 10)! Then join us for the South Florida regional premiere of A Doll's House, Part 2, an uproariously funny comedy fresh from its Broadway run that imagines Nora's untold story after leaving her marriage in Henrik Ibsen's famed play. Our incredible season ends with West Side Story, the Tony Award®-winning sizzling dance musical about two star-crossed lovers caught between warring street gangs.

"We are ecstatic to be producing in our 2018/19 season a selection of plays and musicals that everyone will be talking about," said Andrew Kato, the Theatre's producing artistic director and chief executive. "Steel Magnolias is an irreplaceable classic, and we are equally thrilled to be reimagining the magnificent powerhouse musicals Disney Beauty and the Beast andWest Side Story. We are honored to be one of the first theaters granted the rights to produce A Doll's House, Part 2 following its hit run on Broadway. Due to our agreement with the licensors, we're not able to announce our fifth show until April 1, but we can assure everyone that this mega-musical will be popular. It's so big that we've added a fourth week. Our audiences are going to flip out!"
