Beetlejuice

Paramount Theatre - April 02, 2024 through April 07, 2024

It's showtime, folks! The ghost-with-the-most makes his Broadway return in this edgy and irreverent musical comedy based on Tim Burton's dearly beloved film. BEETLEJUICE tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager whose life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple and Beetlejuice, a demon with a thing for stripes. When Lydia calls on Beetlejuice to scare away anyone with a pulse, this double-crossing specter unleashes a (Nether)world of pandemonium, and the biggest sandworm Broadway has ever seen.

The cast for the national tour includes Justin Collette, stepping into his second role originated by Alex Brightman after replacing in the Broadway production of School of Rock, as Beetlejuice. The company also includes Hillary Porter, Jackera David, Abe Goldfarb, and Isabella Esler as Lydia.

My Fair Lady

Capitol Theatre - April 10, 2024 through April 11, 2024

The most beloved musical of all time, Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY is back on Broadway in a lavish new production from Lincoln Center Theater, the theater that brought you the Tony-winning revivals of South Pacific and The King and I. Directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher, the stellar cast tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.” But who is really being transformed? The classic score features “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “On the Street Where You Live.” The original 1956 production won six Tony Awards including Best Musical, and was hailed by The New York Times as “one of the best musicals of the century."

The touring cast features Anette Barrios-Torres as Eliza and Jonathan Grunert as Professor Henry Higgins.

ALMOST, MAINE

Tacoma Little Theatre - April 26, 2024 through May 12, 2024

Welcome to Almost, Maine.  It’s love. But not quite.

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States—it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just…Almost.  One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same.

Merrily We Roll Along

Secondstory Repertory - March 28, 2024 through April 21, 2024

The triumphs and failures of a jaded composer and his two closest friends are traced from their estranged ending to their idealistic beginning. Directed by John Doyle, who led our Tony Award-winning production of Company, the performers in this highly anticipated revival will play all of the instruments as they act and sing one of Sondheim’s most melodic scores.
