From the Broadway in Richmond Press release:
War Horse – October 29-November 3, 2013 LANDMARK THEATER
WAR HORSE tells the story of young Albert and his beloved horse, Joey. This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and around the world. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.
Straight No Chaser – November 17, 2013 (Special Add-On Performance) CARPENTER THEATRE
STRAIGHT NO CHASER returns to Richmond - with a massive fan base, more than 35 million views on YouTube, and numerous national TV appearances. They are the real deal – the captivating sound of ten voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense…and with a sense of humor.
Cirque Dreams Holidaze – November 29-30, 2013 LANDMARK THEATER
Re-imagine the holidays with CIRQUE DREAMS HOLIDAZE. An original music score and some seasonal favorites accompany hundreds of spectacular costumes and holiday dreams in a setting of gigantic gifts, colossal candy canes and towering soldiers. It’s the perfect way to escape the cold, forget holiday stresses and rediscover the magic of the season.
Jersey Boys – January 7-19, 2014 LANDMARK THEATER
“Too good to be true!” raves the New York Post for JERSEY BOYS, the 2006 Tony® Award-winning Best Musical about Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Four Seasons: Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. This is the story of how four blue-collar kids became one of the greatest successes in pop music history. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide – all before they were 30! JERSEY BOYS features their hit songs “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Rag Doll,” “Oh What a Night” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.” Contains authentic “profane Jersey language”.
The Addams Family – February 7-8, 2014 LANDMARK THEATER
THE ADDAMS FAMILY is the smash-hit musical comedy that brings the darkly delirious world of Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and, of course, Lurch to spooky and spectacular life. This magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice with direction by four-time Tony® Award winner Jerry Zaks. Come meet the family. We’ll leave the lights off for you.
The Rat Pack is Back – March 28-29, 2014 CARPENTER THEATRE
What happens in Vegas…all started with The Rat Pack. This spirited show recreates one of the famous “Summit at the Sands” nights when a swingin’, ring-a-ding group known as “The Rat Pack” was creating hipster legend with a free-wheeling, no-holds-barred nightclub act starring Vegas’ four favorite sons: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dean Martin and Joey Bishop. Produced by Dick Feeney, THE RAT PACK IS BACK features uncanny vocal recreations, unbridled humor, and a hot, live 12-piece orchestra that sends audiences straight back to the coolest time in history. Hits include “That’s Amore,” “My Way,” “Mr. Bojangles,” and many more. See why The Las Vegas Sun writes, “This is as close as anyone has come to capturing the feeling of the real thing.”
Wicked – April 23-May 4, 2014 LANDMARK THEATER
Back by “Popular” demand. Variety calls WICKED ”a cultural phenomenon,” and both times it played in Richmond, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, WICKED is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times). Long before that girl fromKansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One – born with emerald green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for “the most complete – and completely satisfying – new musical in a long time” (USA Today).
