The Broadway show slate for 2019 will be announced in November, when registration opens.
The Broadway show slate for 2018 included Mean Girls, the brand new musical from Tina Fey and the writer of Legally Blonde, a groundbreaking revival of Ahrens and Flaherty's beloved Once On This Island, the sumptuous new Lincoln Center revival of My Fair Lady, directed by Bartlett Sher and starring Diana Rigg, and a thrilling fourth show to be announced soon.
THE BAND'S VISIT: Based on the multi-award winning film, The Band's Visit is brought to Broadway by three-time Tony® nominee David Yazbek (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Full Monty), Drama Desk nominee Itamar Moses (Nobody Loves You, Fortress of Solitude) and acclaimed director David Cromer (Our Town, The House of Blue Leaves); and stars Emmy® winner Tony Shalhoub and Lucille Lortel winner Katrina Lenk. After a mix-up at the border, an Egyptian Police Band is sent to a remote village in the middle of the Israeli desert. With no bus until morning and no hotel in sight, these unlikely travelers are taken in by the locals. Under the spell of the desert sky, their lives become intertwined in the most unexpected ways. The Band's Visit celebrates the deeply human ways music, longing and laughter can connect us all.
MEAN GIRLS: Mean Girls is a ferociously funny new musical from director Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon), composer Jeff Richmond ("Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde), and book writer Tina Fey ("30 Rock"). The story of a naive newbie who falls prey to a trio of lionized frenemies, this inclusive comedy gets to the hilarious heart of what it means to be a true friend - and a worthy nemesis.
MY FAIR LADY: One of the greatest works in the American musical-theater canon, My Fair Lady became (at the time of its original 1956-62 Broadway run) the longest-running show of all time. It’s been 25 years since it was last revived in New York City. The brand new Lincoln Center production will be lavish -- scaled for the grandeur of the Beaumont. The exceptionally talented Bartlett Sher brings his rich insight and thoughtful eye to every aspect of the production, working with his acclaimed design team from South Pacific and The King and I and... a stellar cast of 37 actors! The classic Lerner & Loewe score will be heard using the original orchestrations, played by a full orchestra of 30.
ONCE ON THIS ISLAND: Tony Award® winner Lea Salonga returns to Broadway in Once On This Island, the Broadway musical celebration from the Tony Award®-winning writers of Anastasia and Ragtime. Bursting with Caribbean colors, rhythms and dance, the story comes to vibrant life in a striking production by Tony Award®-nominated director Michael Arden (Spring Awakening revival) and acclaimed choreographer Camille A. Brown. This production transforms the reality of a tropical village devastated by a storm into a fantastical world alive with hope.
