Extra, Extra … Broadway is coming to Indianapolis! One of my favorite things to do is catch a Broadway show at Old National Centre or Clowes Memorial Hall. Broadway in Indianapolis just announced the all-new 2015-2016 season, which includes the return of one of Indianapolis’ favorites in a spectacular new production – “The Phantom of the Opera.” The five show package also includes “Cirque Dreams Holidaze,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Once,” and Disney’s “Newsies.” Back by popular demand, “The Book of Mormon” returns as a season option and will run for a special limited engagement in April 2016.
Grab your family and friends and be dazzled by the energy of “Cirque Dreams Holidaze.” The show celebrates the most wonderful time of the year with singers, original music, and seasonal favorites all performed in a winter wonderland of amazement. Click your heels together and join Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, Dorothy, and her little dog Toto as they journey through the magical land of Oz searching for the Wizard. “The Wizard of Oz” will thrill you with new songs by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber while bringing back the beloved songs from the iconic MGM movie. Watch out for the Wicked Witch of the West and her flying monkeys as you rediscover the real story of Oz in this fantastic musical treat for the whole family.
“Once” is a winner of eight 2012 Tony Awards including best musical. This romantic enchanting tale brings together two people and tells the story about going for your dreams, not living in fear,and the power of music that connects all of us. Ever dreamed of being a Paper Boy? Now is your chance to get the inside scoop from a band of underdogs who become unlikely heroes when they stand up to the most powerful men in New York in Disney’s “Newsies.”
