ON YOUR FEET! The Emilio & Gloria Estefan Broadway Musical
From humble beginnings in Cuba, Emilio and Gloria Estefan came to America and broke through all barriers to become a crossover sensation atop the pop music world. ON YOUR FEET! takes audiences behind the music and inside the real story of this record-making and groundbreaking couple who, in the face of adversity, found a way to end up on their feet.
The classic story of Baby, Johnny and Dirty Dancing on stage is a live theatrical experience that explodes with heart-pounding music, passionate romance, sensational dancing and favorite songs including “Hungry Eyes,” “Hey Baby, Do You Love Me?” and the heart-stopping “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.” Starlight audiences will have the time of their lives!
The King and I
One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, The King and I tells the story of the unconventional relationship between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, the British schoolteacher who he brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. The score features beloved classics like “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance” and “Something Wonderful.”
Broadway’s razzle-dazzle CHICAGO is a triumphant hit musical and the recipient of six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy and thousands of standing ovations. Still playing on Broadway, it now holds the title of No. 1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history.
Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella
June 29-July 1
The Tony Award-winning musical from the creators of The Sound of Music and South Pacific delights audiences with its contemporary take on the classic tale. The lush production features an incredible orchestra, jaw-dropping transformations, all the moments audiences love – plus some surprising new twists!
July 27-August 2
Another Tony Award winner, Hairspray is the musical-comedy phenomenon that takes audiences back to 1962 Baltimore where 16-year-old Tracy Turnblad sets out to dance her way onto TV’s most popular show. Can a big girl with big dreams (and even bigger hair!) change the world – and still have time to win the boy she loves?
Love Never Dies
The love story continues in Love Never Dies, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s spellbinding sequel to The Phantom of the Opera. Ten years after the Phantom’s disappearance from the Paris Opera House, he has escaped to a new life in New York where he lives among the joy rides and freak shows of Coney Island. While he has finally found a place for his music to soar, the Phantom has never stopped yearning for his one true love and musical protégée, Christine Daaé.
Direct from Broadway comes the world’s best-selling magic show. The mind-blowing spectacular of THE ILLUSIONISTS™ showcases the jaw-dropping performances of five of the most talented Illusionists on Earth.
