Boop! The Musical

Please welcome to the stage, LIVE for the first time ever…BETTY BOOP! That sassy-sweet champion of empowerment, that spit-curled icon of joy, that songstress of strength comes alive in BOOP!, the new Broadway-bound musical-comedy extravaganza. Tony Award®–winning director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, La Cage aux Folles, Hairspray) brings the Queen of the Animated Screen to the theater with celebrated multiple-time Grammy®-winning composer David Foster (“I Have Nothing,” “After the Love Is Gone,” “The Prayer”), Tony-nominated lyricist Susan Birkenhead (Working, Jelly’s Last Jam), and Tony-winning bookwriter Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone, The Prom). For almost a century, Betty Boop has won hearts and inspired fans around the world with her trademark looks, voice, and style. Now, in BOOP!, Betty’s dream of an ordinary day off from the super-celebrity in her black-and-white world leads to an extraordinary adventure of color, music, and love in New York City—one that reminds her and the world, “You are capable of amazing things.” Boop-oop-a-doop!


Cult of Love

It’s the holiday season for the Dahl family! The four adult children return to their childhood home with partners in tow. The Dahl traditions include singing carols in harmony at the drop of a hat, but the gathering is anything but harmonious. Old conflicts resurface, new issues battled, and dinner is taking absolutely forever to be served. Will the love the Dahls have for each other be enough to get them through, or will this be their last Christmas together? Emmy® Award nominee Leslye Headland (Bachelorette, “Star Wars: The Acolyte,”) has written an equally heartwarming and heartbreaking new play about the things that bind families together... or tear them apart.


Eureka Day

Wildly relevant and bitingly funny, Jonathan Spector’s play comes to MTC in an all-new production following an acclaimed London run. EUREKA DAY is a private California elementary school with a Board of Directors that values inclusion above all else – that is, until an outbreak of the mumps forces everyone in the community to reconsider the school’s liberal vaccine policy. As cases rise, the board realizes with horror that they’ve got to do what they swore they never would: make a choice that won’t please absolutely everybody. Anna Shapiro directs.


Forbidden Broadway on Broadway: Merrily We Stole a Song

Forbidden Broadway, created by Gerard Alessandrini, makes its Broadway debut after multiple off-Broadway iterations. Weekly guest stars will join the five-person cast as they skewer recent hits and new shows like Back to the Future, The Great Gatsby, The Notebook, Water for Elephants, and Hell's Kitchen.


My Son's a Queer (But What Can You Do?)

Straight — well, not exactly straight — from a smash-hit run in London's West End comes Rob Madge’s triumphant and hilarious celebration of identity, creativity, and the profound bond between a parent and their child.

When Rob was twelve, they attempted a full-blown Disney parade in their house for their grandma. As Rob donned wigs and played Mary Poppins, Ariel, Mickey Mouse and Belle, their dad doubled as Stage Manager, Sound Technician and Goofy. Unfortunately, Dad missed all his cues and pushed all the floats in the wrong direction. Mom mistook Aladdin for Ursula. The costumes went awry. Grandma had a nice time, though.

My Son’s a Queer (But what can you do?) is the joyous autobiographical story of social-media sensation Rob Madge as they set out to recreate that infamous parade – and this time, nobody, no, nobody is gonna rain on it.


Old Friends

Celebrate one of Broadway’s true icons with this legendary theatrical event! Stephen Sondheim’s Old Friends is an irresistible celebration of the master himself, with a company headlined by none other than Tony Award® winners Bernadette Peters and Lea Salonga. Stephen Sondheim’s Old Friends comes to Broadway from London’s West End, where it earned a bevy of 5-star raves and was hailed by The Times as “unmissable musical theatre.” Starring Bernadette Peters and Lea Salonga with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.


Tony and Emmy Award®-winning superstar Idina Menzel makes her long-awaited return to Broadway this January. Direct from a sold-out engagement at San Diego’s La Jolla Playhouse, Redwood is a “visually stunning and immersive” (San Diego Magazine) original musical. From acclaimed writer and director Tina Landau, with contemporary songs from Kate Diaz, whose “score is perfection” (Forbes), Redwood “feels like the American musical of tomorrow” (San Diego Union-Tribune). Jesse (Menzel) seems to have it all — a successful career and devoted family — until a life-altering event drives her far from everyone and everything she knows. When she finds herself at the foot of the redwoods in Northern California, a chance encounter and a leap of faith will change her life forever. Redwood explores the lengths — and heights — one travels to find strength, resilience and healing.
