The Book of Mormon
Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls it “the best musical of this century.” Entertainment Weekly says it’s “the funniest musical of all time.” From “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, it’s THE BOOK OF MORMON, winner of nine Tony Awards® including Best Musical. Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show” calls it “a crowning achievement. So good it makes me angry.” Contains explicit language. For more information about the show visit www.BookOfMormonTheMusical.com.
MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is the smash-hit musical inspired by the famed recording session that brought together rock ‘n’ roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time. On December 4, 1956, these four young musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET brings that legendary night to life, featuring a score of rock hits including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “That’s All Right,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Walk the Line,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Who Do You Love?,” “Matchbox,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Hound Dog” and more.
Coming direct from Broadway, SISTER ACT is the feel-amazing musical comedy smash that the New York Post calls ”RIDICULOUSLY FUN,” and audiences are jumping to their feet in total agreement! Featuring original music by Tony® and 8-time Oscar® winner ALAN MENKEN (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), SISTER ACT tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look—a convent!
CHICAGO THE MUSICAL has everything that makes Broadway great: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; one show-stopping song after another; and the most astonishing dancing you’ve ever seen. No wonder CHICAGO THE MUSICAL has been honored with 6 Tony Awards®, 2 Olivier Awards®, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations. It’s also no surprise that CHICAGO THE MUSICAL has wowed audiences all around the world, from Mexico City to Moscow, from Sao Paulo to South Africa and now it’s coming to Richmond.
MEMPHIS will leave you exhilarated by its explosive blend of electrifying music, soaring emotion and roof-raising energy with original songs by GRAMMY® winner and Bon Jovi co-founder David Bryan, and a gripping true-life inspired story from writer Joe DiPietro. Set In the underground nightclubs of 1950s Memphis, Tennessee, the soul of a new era is dawning as the first incredible sounds of rock ‘n’ roll, blues and gospel are emerging into the mainstream. Falling in love with a beautiful club singer, one young man’s vision to bring her voice and her music out of the clubs and onto the airwaves of America will fly in the face of cultural divides and spark a music revolution that will shake the world.
