Coming Soon to a Theater Near You ... 2014 Season Announcements

Pippin on Bway
A couple of theaters have announced their upcoming seasons.  Check out the links and plan up your next year accordingly!

Hennepin Theatre Trust announced its 2014–2015 Thrivent Financial Broadway on Hennepin Season (16-page season brochure PDF). 

Some new offerings on tour include Pippin, Motown the Musical and Kinky Boots, all currently running on Broadway.  The Book of Mormon and Jersey Boys are back, and a couple of eyebrow-raising shows;  Dirty Dancing and I Love Lucy Live on Stage.  Also included in the season is Theater Latte Da's Oliver.

The Ordway also announced their 2014-2014 Season.  Musical theater shows include Evita, Nice Work If You Can Get It, and the very well-received A Christmas Story.  Other offerings include Damn Yankees, Camelot and The Pirates of Penzance.  Hmm.

Park Square Theatre announced its new season and has expanded its number of shows due to the Boss Stage, their new black box space.  Shows of interest next season include Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play, which was well-reviewed at Playwrights Horizon in New York, 33 Variations (warning: sound--I mean, really?) and The Color Purple.

A few shows are making encore appearance at Park Square, including Trick Boxing, created by and starring the wildly talented Brian Sostek, Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol and Two Sugars, Room for Cream.

More season announcements to come--stay tuned!
