Original Ti Moune and Broadway favorite LaChanze (If/Then, The Color Purple) made a video to announce the search! Watch the video below and then go to their website to find out how YOU can audition to star in next season’s revival.
Once on This Island is the Broadway musical celebration that sweeps us across the sea to a small village—where, in the aftermath of a great storm, a joyous new life begins.
It is the tale of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl who falls in love with a wealthy boy from the other side of the island. When their divided cultures threaten to keep them apart, Ti Moune, guided by the island gods, sets out on a remarkable quest to reunite with the man who has captured her heart.
Bursting with Caribbean colors, rhythms and dance, the story comes to vibrant life through the score by Tony Award® winners Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (Anastasia, Ragtime). The striking production by Tony Award-nominated director Michael Arden (Spring Awakening revival) transforms the reality of a tropical village devastated by a storm into a fantastical world alive with hope.
Come and gather around for Once on This Island—a triumph of the timeless power of theater to bring us together, move our hearts, and help us conquer life’s storms. This is why we tell the story.
Check out the new TV spot for Amélie!
Amélie captured our hearts in the five-time Academy Award-nominated 2001 French film. Now she comes to the stage in an inventive and captivating new musical directed by Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Clybourne Park), with a book by three-time Tony Award nominee Craig Lucas (An American in Paris), music by Daniel Messé (Hem), lyrics by Nathan Tysen (Tuck Everlasting) and Daniel Messé, and musical staging and choreography by Sam Pinkleton (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812).
The musical follows the mesmerizing journey of the inquisitive and charmingly shy Amélie who turns the streets of Montmartre into a world of her own imagining, while secretly orchestrating moments of joy for those around her. After discovering a mysterious photo album and meeting a handsome stranger, Amélie realizes that helping others is easier than participating in a romantic story of her own.

One of the most talked-about new shows of the Broadway season, Come From Away, arrives on Broadway this spring! The breathtaking new musical is currently in previews at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre and is scheduled to open on March 12th. Come From Away tells the remarkable true story of how a small community, notable only for an international airport that was primarily used as a refueling station, came together after the events of September 11, 2001. In a heartbeat, 38 planes with 6,579 passengers were stranded in a remote town in Newfoundland. The locals opened their hearts and homes, hosting this international community of strangers–spurring unexpected camaraderie in extraordinary circumstances.
Much like the subjects of this unconventional musical, Come From Away has had quite the journey to the Great White Way, playing record-breaking engagements in San Diego, Seattle, Washington D.C., Toronto, and even Gander, Newfoundland for two special performances presented to the actual heroes whose actions inspired this incredible show.
To help student groups get the most out of this important and complex story, check out the Come From Away Study Guide. This guide is a fantastic resource on both the background of the specific events of the play, as well as the events of September 11 and the impact they had on the United States and the international community. The resource is the result of collaborative efforts between the TDF Education team, the education team at Seattle Repertory Theatre and the education team at La Jolla Playhouse as well NYC and D.C. educators. The Come From Away Study Guide is an extremely useful tool for teaching students about this difficult topic.

Bandstand, the new American musical, begins previews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on March 31, with opening night set for April 26. Check out this teaser while you wait for this new, swingin’ musical to arrive on Broadway!
Bandstand brings the swing-fueled, against-all-odds story of singer/songwriter Donny Novitski and his band of mismatched fellow vets brilliantly to the stage.
When a national contest to find America’s next music sensation offers a chance at fame and Hollywood fortune, Donny must whip his boys into fighting shape. Teaming up with a beautiful young war widow as their singer, and playing for every voiceless underdog in a world that has left them behind, they will risk everything to redefine the meaning of victory and sing truth to power.
Directed and choreographed by two-time Tony Award® winner Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, In the Heights), starring two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Cinderella, Bonnie and Clyde), Broadway sensation Corey Cott (Newsies), and Tony winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), and featuring an explosive original score, Bandstand is a truly American celebration of the men and women whose personal bravery defined a nation.

M. Butterfly is returning to Broadway in October, 2017! The first revival of David Henry Hwang’s groundbreaking play will star Clive Owen (Old Times, Cinemax’s The Knick) and will be directed by Julie Taymor (The Lion King).
M. Butterfly charts the scandalous romance between a married French diplomat (Owen) and a mysterious Chinese opera singer—a remarkable love story of international espionage and personal betrayal. Their 20-year relationship pushed and blurred the boundaries between male and female, east and west—while redefining the nature of love and the devastating cost of deceit. For the revival, producers said the author will introduce new material inspired by the real-life love affair between French diplomat Bernard Boursicot and Chinese opera singer Shi Pei Pu that has come to light since the play’s 1988 premiere.
Previews for this open-ended production begin October 7th before an official opening scheduled for October 26th at a theater to be announced.

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, which means six more weeks of winter. Cope with the chilly weather by booking group tickets to a Broadway show! Your group could see Cats, Sunset Boulevard, Miss Saigon, Sunday in the Park with George, Hello, Dolly!…Do you ever have the feeling you’ve seen this all before? No, you’re not experiencing déjà vu, nor are you trapped in a never ending time loop. There are several high-profile musical revivals making a comeback on Broadway this season! In honor of the upcoming musical Groundhog Day, let’s take a look at this season’s revivals, and see how exciting it can be to revisit a show.
When Cats first opened on Broadway in 1982, a transfer of the smash production that had opened on London’s West End the year before, it was an immediate success. Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Cats took Broadway by storm with its whimsical lyrics taken from the source’s original text, iconic score by Andrew Lloyd Webber, exquisite direction by Trevor Nunn, and groundbreaking choreography by Gillian Lynne. When the Tony Award-winning original production closed on Broadway in 2000, its 18-year run held the record for longest-running show in Broadway history (a record since surpassed by The Phantom of the Opera, another Andrew Lloyd Webber musical that is still running today!). Inspired by a successful limited revival in London in 2014 featuring the original creative team, Cats returned to Broadway in July of 2016, with direction once again by Trevor Nunn and new choreography by Tony Award-winning Hamilton choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler. Tickets for Cats start at $45 for groups of 12+. Whether you’re revisiting the show you loved way back when or seeing the sensation for the first time, this Cats revival is an essential experience for every Broadway lover!
Glenn Close first transfixed Broadway with her transcendent depiction of faded screen star Norma Desmond in 1994, a performance for which she won the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical. Based on the 1950 Hollywood film of the same name, which starred silver screen legend Gloria Swanson in the leading role, Sunset Boulevard tells the story of Joe Gillis, a hopeful, young screenwriter whose life becomes entangled in the web that is Norma Desmond, a tragic former icon who is grasping at the last vestiges of her once-bright career. The new production, a 16-week limited engagement, is a transfer of a successful London revival that played in 2016. This semi-staged production features Glenn Close reprising her performance, backed by a 40-piece orchestra. Tickets for Sunset Boulevard start at $55 for groups of 12+. It’s a rare thing to have a second chance to catch such a memorable performance, so be sure not to miss it!
Written by the musical team behind Les Miserables and based on Puccini’s opera Madama Butterfly, Miss Saigon tells the story of a tragic love affair between Chris, an American G.I., and Kim, a Vietnamese orphan, before and after the Fall of Saigon. The Broadway transfer of the original London production was a massive hit, propelling a young Lea Salonga to stardom. This season’s upcoming revival, another transfer of a successful London production, is set to open on March 23, 2017 for a limited run through January 15, 2018 at Miss Saigon’s original Broadway home, the Broadway Theatre. The show will star Eva Noblezada, Jon Jon Briones, and Alistair Brammer, reprising their lauded performances from the West End, and is expected to make quite the splash! Tickets for Miss Saigon start at $39 for groups of 12+.
This production of Sunday in the Park with George, the second Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, will be the first show to play at the newly restored Hudson Theatre when it opens later this month. Based on an enormously well-received concert production staged in October of 2016, this downsized, semi-staged revival stars Oscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal, making his long-awaited Broadway musical debut as George, and Tony Award-winner Annaleigh Ashford as Dot/Marie. Sunday in the Park with George begins with the story of Georges Seurat (Gyllenhaal), the real-life painter of “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte,” and his relationship with the fictional Dot, long-suffering model and companion to the tormented artist, who begins to lose her patience with the ever-distant Georges as he tries to complete his magnum opus. The action then moves 100 years into the future, and we follow another George (also Gyllenhaal) who is struggling to maintain his artistic integrity in the world of modern art. This 10-week only run begins previews on February 11, 2017, with an official opening on February 23 and a hard closing date of April 23. Tickets for Sunday in the Park with George start at $49 for groups of 12+. Catch this revival while you can!
Bette Midler finally returns to Broadway as the feisty matchmaker Dolly Levi in the upcoming limited revival of the classic musical Hello, Dolly! The Divine Miss M takes on the role made famous by Broadway legend Carol Channing and stage and screen diva Barbra Streisand in the film adaptation. Midler will be joined by Emmy and Tony Award winner David Hyde Pierce, as well as Broadway veterans Gavin Creel, Kate Baldwin and more, to sing such beloved standards as “Before the Parade Passes By,” “Put on Your Sunday Clothes,” and, of course, “Hello, Dolly!” Tickets for Hello, Dolly! start at $69 for groups of 10+. Don’t miss out on this season’s most highly anticipated hit!
