2018-2019 "Broadway at the National" SEASON
October 14 - November 18, 2018
Pre-Broadway world premiere of the new musical comedy
It's showtime, folks! Beetlejuice is ruder, raunchier and frankly, more repellent than ever in this original musical based on Tim Burton's wonderfully demented film. Directed by Alex Timbers (Moulin Rouge!), BEETLEJUICE tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager obsessed with the whole "being dead thing." Lucky for Lydia, her new house is haunted by a recently deceased couple and a degenerate demon who happens to have a thing for stripes. When Lydia calls on this ghost-with-the-most to scare away her insufferable parents, Beetlejuice comes up with the perfect plan, which involves exorcism, arranged marriages and an adorable girl scout who gets scared out of her wits. Get tickets now to BEETLEJUICE - hell, bring the whole family! We've got plenty of 4-letter words that your kids will love.
Tony Award nominee Alex Brightman (School of Rock) will star as 'Beetlejuice' and two-time Lortel Award nominee Sophia Anne Caruso (Lazarus) will star as 'Lydia'. BEETLEJUICE features choreography by Connor Gallagher (The Robber Bridegroom), an original score by Eddie Perfect (King Kong) and a book by Scott Brown and Emmy Award nominee Anthony King (Broad City).
PARENTAL DISCRETION IS ADVISED. Contains strong language, mature references, and a lot of the crazy, inappropriate stuff you would expect from a deranged demon

SCHOOL OF ROCK - THE MUSICAL
January 16 - 27, 2019
SCHOOL OF ROCK - THE MUSICAL is a New York Times Critics' Pick and "an inspiring jolt of energy, joy and mad skillz" (Entertainment Weekly). Based on the hit film, this hilarious new musical follows Dewey Finn, a wannabe rock star posing as a substitute teacher who turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. This high-octane smash hit features 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber, all the original songs from the movie, and musical theater's first-ever kids rock band playing their instruments live on stage. Vanity Fair raves, "fists of all ages shall be pumping!"
February 26 - March 3, 2019
Directed by visionary Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin, Hair) and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award winning film, FINDING NEVERLAND tells the incredible story behind one of the world's most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four Young Brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys' enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes a monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible, and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie's classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event. FINDING NEVERLAND is "far and away the best musical of the year!" (NPR).
A Bronx Tale
March 26 - 31, 2019
Broadway's hit crowd-pleaser takes you to the stoops of the Bronx in the 1960s, where a young man is caught between the father he loves and the mob boss he'd love to be. Bursting with high-energy dance numbers and original doo-wop tunes from Alan Menken, the songwriter of Beauty and the Beast, A BRONX TALE is an unforgettable story of loyalty and family. Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro and Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks direct this streetwise musical based on Academy Award-nominee Chazz Palminteri's story - that The New York Times hails as "A Critics' Pick...wonderful and refreshing! The kind of tale that makes you laugh and cry." It's "Jersey Boys meets West Side Story," says amNewYork.
April 23 - 28, 2019
STOMP is explosive, inventive, provocative, witty, and utterly unique - an unforgettable experience for all ages. The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments - matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps - to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms. The return of the international percussive hit also brings new surprises, with some sections of the show now updated and restructured, utilizing props like tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans. As USA Today says, "STOMP finds beautiful noises in the strangest places." STOMP. See what the noise is all about.
