Cincinnati announces its 2013-2014 Broadway season!

Two young Mormons and a pair of witches from Oz are coming to Cincinnati. Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Cincinnati’s 2013-2014 season will include the Tony-winning musical The Book of Mormon and the blockbuster musical Wicked. The season lineup also includes Ghost, Flashdance, Evita and How The Grinch Stole Christmas. All shows will play the Procter & Gamble Hall at the Aronoff Center for the Arts.

The Book of Mormon, winner of nine Tony Awards, will open on January 7, 2014 and close on January 26. Written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon follows two young Mormon missionaries sent to Uganda, who soon discover their training did not quite prepare them for the world outside of Salt Lake City.

The Broadway mega hit Wicked flies into Cincinnati from March 5, 2014 through March 23. A vivid reimagining of the classic The Wizard of Oz, the musical spotlights the untold stories of Oz’s most famous characters: the Wicked Witch of the West and her unlikely friend, Glinda the Good. The Grammy-winning score by Stephen Schwartz features the songs “The Wizard and I,” “Popular” and “Defying Gravity.”

The romance of Ghost will touch a whole new generation as the story of the 1990 movie comes to the stage in a brand new musical. The story follows Sam and Molly, a young couple whose connection takes a shocking turn after Sam’s untimely death. Trapped between two worlds, Sam refuses to leave Molly when he learns she is in grave danger. Desperate to communicate with her, he turns to a storefront psychic who helps him protect Molly and avenge his death. The musical spectacle, featuring illusions and jaw-dropping sets, will play from September 24, 2013 through October 6.

Flashdance will shimmy onto the Cincinnati stage from October 29, 2013 through November 10. Based on the hit 1983 movie, Flashdance tells the story of Alex, a working-class girl from Pittsburgh striving to make her dreams of becoming a professional dancer a reality. The show features the hit songs from the movie, “Flashdance—What a Feeling,” “Maniac,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll” and 10 original songs.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s acclaimed musical Evita will tango into Cincinnati from February 18, 2014 through March 2. Based on Argentina’s historic icon Eva Peron, the musical tells the story of the young woman who used her beauty and charisma to rise meteorically from the country’s slums to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Evita tells Peron’s unforgettable true story, while featuring some of musical theater’s most famous songs, including "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" and "High Flying, Adored."

Lock up the roast beast, because Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas is sneaking into Cincinnati from November 27, 2013 through December 1. Based on the classic children’s book and featuring the songs from the beloved 1966 cartoon, Max the Dog narrates as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is “two sizes too small,” decides to steal Christmas away from the Holiday-loving citizens of Whoville. Magnificent sets and costumes inspired by Dr. Seuss’ original illustrations will breath new life into this timeless Christmas story.
