Million Dollar Quartet

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is the new smash Broadway musical inspired by the famed recording session that brought together rock ‘n’ roll legends 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.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET brings you inside the recording studio with four major talents who came together as a red-hot rock ‘n’ roll band for one unforgettable night.

The Addams Family

The weird and wonderful family comes to devilishly delightful life in a Broadway musical. This magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, Drama Desk-winning composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party), choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys), and Olivier Award-winning director/designers Phelim McDermott & Julian Crouch (Shockheaded Peter). It’s a family portrait that’s completely off the wall.

Spend an evening with Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Lurch and Pugsley as they face a brand-new predicament. Daughter Wednesday has fallen in love with a young man. A nice young man, from a normal family. And the Addams household is about to be turned upside-down.

La Cage Aux Folles

Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein’s hilarious musical comedy LA CAGE AUX FOLLES is back on Broadway in a smash-hit, Tony-winning production that garnered RAVE REVIEWS and has audience members in stitches every night!

Winner of the 2010 Tony Award® for BEST MUSICAL REVIVAL, LA CAGE is a tuneful and touching tale of one family’s struggle to stay together… stay fabulous… and above all else, stay true to themselves!

Currently on Broadway**, Five-time Emmy Award® winner Kelsey Grammer (“Frasier”) stars as Georges, the owner of a glitzy nightclub in lovely Saint-Tropez. Douglas Hodge (Broadway’s 2010 Tony-winning Best Actor) stars as his partner Albin, who moonlights as the glamorous chanteuse Zaza. When Georges’ son brings his fiancée’s conservative parents home to meet the flashy pair, the bonds of family are put to the test as the feather boas fly!

This is definitely not the same old song and dance.

It’s rather gaudy…but it’s also rather grand!

With a glorious score of hummable melodies and a dynamite cast featuring the “notorious and dangerous Cagelles,” LA CAGE is an indisputable musical comedy classic… and this extraordinary new version shows you why!

**Please note that Kelsey Grammer and Douglas Hodge will not be performing during the Dallas performances of La Cage Aux Folles.
