The King and I

Two worlds collide in the Lincoln Center Theater production of this “breathtaking and exquisite” (The New York Times) musical, directed by Bartlett Sher. 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, the British schoolteacher who the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. Winner of the 2015 Tony Award® for Best Musical Revival, The King and I is “too beautiful to miss” (New York Magazine).

On Your Feet! The Musical

From their humble beginnings in Cuba, Emilio and Gloria Estefan came to America and broke through all barriers to become a crossover sensation at the very top of the pop music world. But just when they thought they had it all, they almost lost everything.

Directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots), with choreography by Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys) and an original book by Academy Award winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman), ON YOUR FEET! features some of the most iconic songs of the past quarter-century – and one of the most inspiring stories in music history.

Peter Pan

This classic adventure begins in the quiet home of the Darling children and ends up in Neverland with Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and a happy gang of boys and girls who never grow up. Danger, romance, magic and beauty appear and disappear like phantoms in a dream. Will these lost children stay lost or will they find the courage to grow up? J.M. Barrie created the character Peter Pan in a novel in 1902 and later a stage play titled Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, which premiered in London in 1904.
