“We’re excited to share the magic of theater with our subscribers and guests over yet another season,” said Frances Egler, Senior Director of Programming and Presentations at the Kimmel Cultural Campus, Campus’ Resident Tony Awards® voter, and curator of the Broadway series. “There is truly something for everyone – from movie-to-stage musicals like Beetlejuice, Moulin Rouge! The Musical, and The Lion King; to experiences for the modern music lovers, like TINA – The Tina Turner Musical, Alanis Morissette-inspired Jagged Little Pill, and the magic of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in Jersey Boys; to classic and long-beloved Broadway shows like Annie and Les Misérables.”
“The Shubert Organization is incredibly proud to transport these magnificent productions to the City of Philadelphia and the historic Forrest Theatre,” shared Robert E. Wankel, Chairman and CEO of The Shubert Organization. “We’re excited to continue our partnership with the Kimmel Cultural Campus as we embark on yet another season of providing the best of Broadway for the Philadelphia region. We hope that in these challenging times, the gift of live theater not only acts as an optimistic outlook but also provide common ground for people to come together.”
