Hadestown

Cleaning up during the 2018/19 awards season, plucky folk opera Hadestown garnered eight Tony Awards (including the coveted Tony for Best Musical), four Drama Desk Awards, six Outer Critics Circle Awards, and a Drama League Award. This came as no surprise given the production received much acclaim during both its Off-Broadway and Broadway runs, praised for its soaring imagination, vibrant retelling of a classic story, and a sumptuous score that evokes smoky New Orleans jazz and bubbling Americana-tinged folk. Don't miss out when the lauded musical hits the road on this hotly anticipated national tour!

Winner of two Drama Desk Awards! After an a-maize-ing premiere at Broadways Nederlander Theatre, the heartwarming story is heading on a national tour! With Nashville's top songwriting talents from Tony winner Robert Horn, in collaboration with Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, this musical offers a kernel of joy in these divided times, exploring how opening up to people and ideas we are wary of can be a beautiful process, uniting us in our similarities, not our differences. Aw Shucks!

The Book of Mormon

With NINE Tony Awards - including Best Musical - a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and leading New York Times critic Ben Brantley himself calling it the "best new musical of the century", The Book of Mormon's 2011 debut was a pop culture moment. Still enjoying concurrent engagements in London's West End and on Broadway, the bad boy of musical theatre remains a top draw, leaving audiences either outraged or in pain from laughing to this day. Now heading out across the country, don't miss your chance to catch this modern classic. Just be prepared for the lewd, the crude, and downright naughty songs and antics along the way...
