The new season kicks off Oct. 8-14, 2023 with the national tour premiere of Girl From the North Country, the Tony Award-winning musical featuring the music of Bob Dylan set in Duluth, Minnesota during the Depression. The lives of a group of wayward travelers intersect in a guesthouse filled with music, life and hope in an original story set to twenty legendary songs of Bob Dylan as they’ve never been heard before.

Direct from Broadway, Company is the winner of five Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical and will come to Minneapolis Nov. 14-19, 2023. This revelatory new production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s groundbreaking musical comedy is at once boldly sophisticated, deeply insightful and downright hilarious.

Everyone’s favorite nanny is headed to Minneapolis for the holidays Dec. 19-24, 2023 in the Minnesota premiere of Mrs. Doubtfire. The international new hit musical, based on the beloved film, tells the hysterical and heartfelt story of an out-of-work-actor who will do anything for his kids.

The new year begins with a love letter to the theatre in the sensational Broadway revival Funny Girl coming Jan. 16-21, 2024. In one of the most celebrated musical scores of all time, including the classic song “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” this bittersweet comedy is the story of the indomitable Fanny Brice, a girl from the Lower East Side who dreamed of a life on the stage.

Get ready to laugh with murder and blackmail on the menu when six mysterious guests assemble at Bloody Manor for a night they’ll never forget. Making its Minnesota premiere, Clue, based on the cult 1985 Paramount movie, appears Feb. 27 – March 3, 2024 in the ultimate whodunit that will leave you dying with laughter and keep you guessing until the final twist.

The Broadway spectacular that began right here in Minneapolis in 1997, The Lion King, makes its triumphant return to the Orpheum Theatre next spring for a five-week engagement March 27 – April 28, 2024. More than 100 million people around the world have experienced the awe-inspiring visual artistry, the unforgettable music and the uniquely theatrical storytelling in one of the most breathtaking and beloved productions ever to grace the stage.

And finally, to close out the season is the Minnesota premiere of MJ for two weeks May 14-26, 2024. The music. The moves. The icon. Now, the unparalleled artistry of the greatest entertainer of all time comes to Minneapolis as MJ, the multi Tony Award®-winning new musical goes beyond the singular moves and signature sound of the star, offering a rare look at the creative mind and collaborative spirit that catapulted Michael Jackson into legendary status.

Returning Dec. 5-10, 2023 just in time for the holidays is the timeless story of Aladdin in a thrilling production filled with unforgettable beauty, magic, comedy and spectacle.  And back by popular demand is everybody’s favorite story about a mother, a daughter and three possible dads. MAMMA MIA! returns to Minneapolis Feb. 6-11, 2024.
