Broadway in Hollywood recently announced their new 2023-24 season consisting of seven shows; five Los Angeles premieres, one Pre-Broadway L.A. premiere and the return of an American classic, with all performances playing at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre.
The new season at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre kicks off with Broadway’s most Tony Award-winning new show of the season MJ, the hit musical sensation that explores the creative mind and collaborative spirit of the legendary artist, Michael Jackson.
MJ, the multi–Tony Award®-winning new musical centers around the making of the 1992 Dangerous World Tour, offers a rare look at the creative mind and collaborative spirit that catapulted Michael Jackson into legendary status.
Next up will be the pre-Broadway L.A. premiere of an all-new production of the Tony Award-winning musical The Wiz.
The Wiz is the first major revival in 40 years! This groundbreaking twist on The Wizard of Oz changed the face of Broadway—from its iconic score packed with soul, gospel, rock, and finger-snapping 70s funk to its stirring tale of Dorothy’s journey to find her place in a contemporary world.
Celebrating its 25th Anniversary Tour, Chicago the Musical returns for the first time in nearly eight years.
Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.
Revered playwright Conor McPherson writes and directs the Tony-winning Girl From the North Country, which boldly reimagines 20 legendary songs by Bob Dylan, as they’ve never been heard before.
They will then present two family favorites, one new and one classic to the Pantages stage. Mrs. Doubtfire makes its hilarious and touching L.A. debut. After losing custody in a messy divorce, Daniel Hillard creates the kindly alter ego of Scottish nanny Euphegenia Doubtfire in a desperate attempt to stay in their lives. As his new character takes on a life of its own, Mrs. Doubtfire teaches Daniel more than he bargained for about how to be a father.
It is then followed by an all-new production of Peter Pan, directed by Lonny Price with an additional book by Larissa FastHorse. This extraordinary musical full of excitement and adventure features iconic and timeless songs including “I’m Flying,” “I Gotta Crow,” “I Won’t Grow Up” and “Neverland.”
Closing out the season, in a production overseen by Stephen Sondheim himself prior to his passing in late 2021, is Company – the 2022 Tony Award-winning Best Musical Revival, featuring revelatory staging by three-time Tony Award-winning director Marianne Elliott.
Company, the musical comedy masterpiece about the search for love and cocktails in New York, is turned on its head in Elliott’s revelatory staging, in which musical theatre’s most iconic bachelor is now a bachelorette. This whip-smart musical comedy, given a game-changing makeover for a modern-day Manhattan, features some of Sondheim’s best loved songs, including “Company,” “You Could Drive a Person Crazy,” “The Ladies Who Lunch,” “Side by Side,” and the iconic “Being Alive.”
As previously announced, Cameron Mackintosh’s acclaimed production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Tony Award-winning musical phenomenon, Les Miserables, will become immediately available as a Season Add-on for theatergoers who purchase Broadway in Hollywood’s all-new 2023-24 Season.
