Mike Birbiglia'S THE NEW ONE
SEPTEMBER 24-29, 2019
He's made you laugh in Sleepwalk With Me (it was a play presented by Nathan Lane, then a movie, THEN a book), My Girlfriend's Boyfriend, and "Thank God for Jokes." (He was also really funny in that one season of "Orange is the New Black." And in "Billions." And "Broad City.") Now he's direct from Broadway, telling a new story in a new way with the same heart and humor we've come to expect. Lin-Manuel Miranda called THE NEW ONE "as perfect a night as you're gonna get." Do not miss THE NEW ONE. Some people say it's his best one. (It was John Mulaney. Also Vogue.)
Jimmy Buffett'S ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE
OCTOBER 8-13, 2019
Welcome to Margaritaville, where people come to get away from it all - and stay to find something they never expected. With a book by Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia ("My Name is Earl," "Raising Hope") and Emmy Award nominee Mike O'Malley ("Survivors Remorse," "Shameless") ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE is the musical comedy featuring both original songs and your most-loved Jimmy Buffett classics, including "Fins," "Volcano," "Cheeseburger in Paradise," and many more. USA Today calls it "A little slice of paradise!" and Entertainment Weekly raves, "It will knock your flip-flops off!" So don't let the party start without you.
RENT 20TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR
NOVEMBER 12-17, 2019
Back by popular demand! In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway... and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson's RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. Now, this Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A reimagining of Puccini's La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters - love.
