HADESTOWN | Dec. 8 – 13, 2020
Welcome to "Hadestown," where a song can change your fate. Winner of eight 2019 Tony Awards® including Best Musical and the 2020 Grammy Award® for Best Musical Theater Album, this acclaimed new show by celebrated singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and innovative director Rachel Chavkin ("Natasha," "Pierre" & "The Great Comet of 1812") is a love story for today... and always.
"Hadestown" intertwines two mythic tales - that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone - as it invites you on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell's beguiling melodies and Chavkin's poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers and singers, "Hadestown" is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets go.

WICKED | February 17 – March 7, 2021
So much happened before Dorothy dropped in! "Wicked," the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz, but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin – smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships until the world decides to call one "good," and the other one "wicked."
From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, "Wicked" – the untold true story of the Witches of Oz – transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story that USA Today cheers is "a complete triumph! An original musical that will make you laugh, cry, and think." For information, visit www.wickedthemusical.com.
