The Heart of Rock and Roll

Get amped! THE HEART OF ROCK AND ROLL — the new musical comedy love letter to the 1980’s, inspired by the timeless hits of HUEY LEWIS AND THE NEWS — is coming to Broadway. Step into an era when the airwaves sizzled and bands with platinum dreams rocked every arcade, mall and neon bar.

Directed by Gordon Greenberg, Co-Artistic Director of the Broadway Teachers Workshop, THE HEART OF ROCK AND ROLL is a raucous rom-com wrapped in pure musical joy. Jam-packed with HUEY LEWIS megahits like “The Power of Love”, “Do You Believe In Love?”, “The Heart of Rock and Roll”, “I Want A New Drug”, Doin’ It All For My Baby”, “If This is It”, “Hip To Be Square” and “Stuck with You”, this shamelessly fun show will have you dancing in your seat (and all the way home). Don’t miss Broadway’s newest feel-great musical.

HOW TO DANCE IN OHIO

Based on the award-winning HBO documentary, HOW TO DANCE IN OHIO is a heart-filled new musical exploring the need to connect and the courage it takes to step out into the world. At a group counseling center in Columbus, Ohio, seven autistic young adults prepare for a spring formal dance—a rite of passage that breaks open their routines and sets off hilarious and heartbreaking encounters with love, stress, excitement, and independence. How to Dance in Ohio is a story about people standing on the cusp of the next phase of their lives, facing their hopes and fears, ready to make a very big first move…and dance. 

THE OUTSIDERS

Adapted from S.E. Hinton’s seminal book and Francis Ford Coppola’s iconic film.

In Tulsa, Oklahoma, 1967, the hardened hearts and aching souls of Ponyboy Curtis, Johnny Cade and their chosen family of ‘outsiders’ are in a fight for survival and a quest for purpose in a world that may never accept them. A story of the bonds that brothers share and the hopes we all hold on to, this gripping new musical reinvigorates the timeless tale of ‘haves and have nots’, of protecting what’s yours and fighting for what could be.

THE OUTSIDERS features a book by Adam Rapp with Justin Levine, music and lyrics by Jamestown Revival (Jonathan Clay & Zach Chance) and Justin Levine, music supervision, arrangements & orchestrations by Justin Levine, choreography by Rick Kuperman & Jeff Kuperman and directed by Danya Taymor.

Water FOR ELEPHANTS

The critically acclaimed bestselling novel WATER FOR ELEPHANTS comes to vivid life on Broadway in a unique, spectacle-filled new musical.

After losing what matters most, a young man jumps a moving train unsure of where the road will take him and finds a new home with the remarkable crew of a traveling circus, and a life – and love – beyond his wildest dreams. Seen through the eyes of his older self, his adventure becomes a poignant reminder that if you choose the ride, life can begin again at any age.

Directed by Tony Award® nominee Jessica Stone (Kimberly Akimbo), with a book by three-time Tony nominee Rick Elice (Jersey Boys, Peter and the Starcatcher) adapted from Sara Gruen’s novel, and a soaring score by the acclaimed PigPen Theatre Co., WATER FOR ELEPHANTS unites innovative stagecraft with the very best of Broadway talent in an authentic and deeply moving new musical that invites us all to give ourselves to the unknown.
