The Philly holiday season is shining brighter with the start of the Broadway Philadelphia (#BWYPHL) 2016-17 season! This year features an outstanding lineup of hit plays/musicals including “The Bodyguard,” “Cabaret,” “The King and I,” “Motown the Musical,” “Wicked,” and the season opener AN AMERICAN IN PARIS – which premieres on November 23.
The most honored new musical of 2015 and winner of four Tony Awards®, “An American in Paris” is the romantic story about an American soldier, a mysterious French girl, and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war. Directed and choreographed by 2015 Tony Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon, the show features the music and lyrics of George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin and a book by Craig Lucas.
I look forward to the #BWYPHL season starting, and have enjoyed many shows from seasons past – including last year’s outstanding performances of “Beautiful: A Carol King Musical,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and “Matilda.” With tickets starting at just $20, what a great way to share the magic of the theater with the family – young and old alike!
