They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note.  They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of it.  But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story – a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.  Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the Tony Award®-winning true-life musical phenomenon, JERSEY BOYS.  From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s “just too good to be true”.  Featuring the legendary top ten hits: “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Walk Like A Man”, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”, and “December, 1963 (Oh What A Night)”.

PLEASE NOTE:  JERSEY BOYS contains authentic “profane Jersey language” and is recommended for ages 12+.

The winner of Broadway.com’s Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, this breathtaking smash “captures the kid-at-heart,” says TIME Magazine. VOGUE cheers, “It’s a must-see you’ll remember for years to come!”  Directed by visionary Tony® Award winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award® winning film, FINDING NEVERLAND tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan.  Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers.  With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland – where nothing is impossible, and the wonder of childhood lasts forever.  The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event.

Two worlds collide in this “breathtaking and exquisite” (The New York Times) musical, based on the 2015 Tony Award®-winning Lincoln Center Theater production.  One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You”,  “I Whistle a Happy Tune”, “Hello Young Lovers”, “Shall We Dance”, and “Something Wonderful”.  Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher whom the King – a modernist in an imperialistic world – brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. THE KING AND I is “too beautiful to miss” (New York Magazine).

With 10 Tony® nominations including Best Musical, SOMETHING ROTTEN! is a “big, fat hit!” (New York Post).  Set in the ‘90s – the 1590s – this hilarious smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write their own hit play while the “rock star” Shakespeare keeps getting all the hits.  When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first MUSICAL!  With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, SOMETHING ROTTEN! – from the director of ALADDIN and the co-director of THE BOOK OF MORMON – is “The Producers + Spamalot + The Drowsy Chaperone. Squared!” (New York Magazine).

Broadway Benefits

Chicago Check

Keith Boaz, Juanita K. Hammons Hall Executive Director, and Kay Litchy, Juanita K. Hammons Hall Group Sales Coordinator, present a check to Jason Ray from Springfield Black Tie representing donations from the presale for Kinky Boots.

The “Broadway Benefits Our Community” outreach, which began during the 2009-2010 season, has thus far contributed over $55,000 to organizations such as the CoxHealth Foundation Breast Care Fund and the Dee Ann White Women's and Children's Hospital, Care to Learn, Ozarks Food Harvest, the American Red Cross, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Ozarks, Isabel’s House, Ronald McDonald House and Habitat for Humanity.  The donations come from a designated portion of Presale ticket revenue – a win-win situation which not only benefits the local charities, but also gives patrons an opportunity to purchase advance tickets, increasing early ticket sales for the shows.

This project also offers the Broadway touring companies an opportunity to give back to the community that welcomes and supports their performances. We plan to continue these efforts whenever possible for future productions. Keep watching our website and join our E-list for information about upcoming Broadway Presale offers and the charities they benefit.
