In December 1986, the Kennedy Center hosted the pre-Broadway run of what has become, undisputedly, one of the world's most popular musicals. And now we are bringing her home. Cameron Mackintosh presents the acclaimed new production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg's Tony Award-winning musical phenomenon, Les Miserables. Seen by over 130 million people worldwide in 53 countries and 22 languages, this brilliant production has taken the world by storm and has been hailed as "Les Mis for the 21st Century" (Huffington Post), "a reborn dream of a production" (Daily Telegraph) and "one of the greatest musicals ever created" (Chicago Tribune). Set against the backdrop of 19th century France, Les Miserables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice, and redemption-a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. This epic and uplifting story has become one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history.
Aladdin, adapted from the Disney film and centuries-old folktales including "One Thousand and One Nights," is brought to fresh theatrical life in this bold new musical. Aladdin's journey sweeps audiences into an exotic world of daring adventure, classic comedy and timeless romance. This new production features a full score, including the five cherished songs from the Academy Award-winning soundtrack and more written especially for the stage.
ON YOUR FEET! is the inspiring true story about heart, heritage and two people who believed in their talent-and each other-to become an international sensation: Gloria and Emilio Estefan. Now their story is an all-new exhilarating original musical winning the hearts of critics and audiences alike, with the Chicago Tribune declaring "IT'S A HIT!" and The New York Times cheering, "The very air in the room seems to vibrate in this undeniably crowd-pleasing musical!"
It's showtime! Based on Tim Burton's dearly beloved film, this hilarious musical tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager whose whole life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple and a demon with a thing for stripes. With an irreverent book, an astonishing set, and a score that's out of this Netherworld, BEETLEJUICE is "SCREAMINGLY GOOD FUN!" (Variety). And under its uproarious surface (six feet under, to be exact), it's a remarkably touching show about family, love, and making the most of every Day-O!
Written by indie singer songwriter Anais Mitchell and brought to vivid life by experimental theatre director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812), the musical began its life as a touring concert and concept album before taking to the stage at the New York Theatre Workshop in 2016. Based on the beloved Greek myth of Orpheus and his supernatural journey into the underworld, Mitchell and Rachel give the story a uniquely modern and American sensibility - their Hades is a fearsome King of The Underworld cum factory fat cat boss that torments lost souls with endless mechanic toil. Orpheus is cast as a struggling musician and the post-apocalyptic, depression-era world he lives in is tormented with wild seasons that smack of climate-change.
