Just Announced – Your 2021 AdventHealth Broadway Season!
We’re excited to announce your 2021 AdventHealth Broadway Season! You may recognize a few shows in the lineup - we didn’t want Kansas Citians to miss out on these fantastic productions, and we’re thrilled that we were able to re-book a number of shows that had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic—in addition to two new, sensational Broadway hits. This premier line up of national Broadway tours kicks off in June with Escape to Margaritaville, the musical comedy hit featuring Jimmy Buffett classics in addition to original songs. Waitress, the heart-warming show with music by Sara Bareilles follows later that month, and the romantic and adventure-filled musical Anastasia brings patrons into July. Sister Act is sure to please in August with its original music by Tony and Oscar winner Alan Menken, and the high-energy dance numbers in The Prom will round out the season in September. And don’t miss out on the weekend specials - Summer: The Donna Summer Musical and Blue Man Group

Amazon’s First Look At Heidi Schreck Tony-Winner
What The Constitution Means to Me, a 2017 Tony Award-nominated play written and performed by Heidi Schreck, will premiere on Amazon Prime Video this month.

She addresses a number of relevant topics including women’s rights, immigration and domestic abuse, and received critical acclaim on Broadway. The play won an Obie Award and a New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, and was a finalist for the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. And, good news if you enjoy this production - Amazon has announced that it has signed a deal with Schreck to create content exclusively for their platform.
