Two of South Florida’s biggest Broadway-level houses have announced their upcoming seasons today, with some major musicals and plays coming to the 305 and the 954. The Adrienne Arsht Center and Broward Center for the Performing Arts have been cultural mainstays in South Florida featuring the best and brightest of touring Broadway shows.
The historical pop princess musical Six has released two tour dates for both Broward Center and Arsht Center in October, with its Broadway iteration being a sensation stateside. I cannot recommend this show enough, it packs a punch in 90 minutes, the costumes are sensational with a message that is absolutely heartfelt. The show is a concert style tale about the ex-wives of Henry VIII competing to be the lead singer of their pop group based on who had the hardest life with the infamously tyrannical king through the visage of artists like Beyonce and Ariana Grande.
Similarly, the juggernaut musical Hamilton returns to the Broward Center around the holidays in November/December. With a pro-shot on Disney+ featuring the Original Broadway Cast, the show’s staying power is a testament to the infectious songs and kinetic choreography.
Speaking of Disney, the more family-friendly Aladdin makes its way to the Arsht Center for a week in Miami with the story of the pauper turned prince featuring the brilliant songs of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken.
For three nights only in January, Riverdance makes its return to tour after being shuttered due to the pandemic with an absolutely joyous evening of traditional Irish song and dance to celebrate its 25th anniversary at the Broward Center.
Fans of the iconic bombshell vocalist will enjoy the show Tina- The Tina Turner Musical which makes its way on its first national tour to the Broward Center, with classic songs and powerhouse performances.
Two Broadway mainstays featuring empowered femmes are coming to the theaters in February, with the emotional Wicked detailing the story of the witches of Oz before Dorothy dropped in at the Arsht Center and Chicago- the Musical detailing the jazz age story of Roxie Hart, a starlet caught in a murder trial while trying to make her way in showbiz.
Broward Center gives us our only play of the season with the Aaron Sorkin adaptation of the Atticus Finch story To Kill A Mockingbird, which plans to reopen soon on Broadway. The Lincoln Center production of My Fair Lady comes to the Arsht Center with an update to the classical musical.
In a big effort to help encourage younger theatergoers back to the stage, Mean Girls and Beetlejuice are both coming to the Broward Center, with both shows shuttered on Broadway due to the pandemic. I was fortunate to catch Beetlejuice at its original home of the Winter Garden Theater for the FINAL show of the original Broadway Lydia, Sophia Anne Caruso, and my love for musical theater was re-ignited by this show. While no details are out about casting I am waiting with baited breath for who could possibly fill that striped suit. The last time Mean Girls played the Broward Center was March 2020 and the staying power of the show feels like a victory lap to be the last Broadway show to play before the day the theaters went dark.
April sees the fun jukebox musical Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations continuing its first national tour at the Arsht Center and my full thoughts of the stellar production can be found here.
