With its irresistible combination of heart and laughs, song and dance, SOME LIKE IT HOT won more theater awards than any show this season, and was named Best Musical by the Drama Desk, The Drama League, and the Outer Critics Circle.

A new musical about growing up and growing old (in no particular order), KIMBERLY AKIMBO is the winner of 5 Tony Award® including BEST MUSICAL.  It features Tony Award®-winning book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire (Shrek), a Tony Award®-winning score by Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home), choreography by Danny Mefford (Dear Evan Hansen) and direction by Tony-nominated director Jessica Stone. Kimberly is about to turn 16 and recently moved with her family to a new town in suburban New Jersey. In this “howlingly funny heartbreaker of a show” (The New Yorker), Kim is forced to navigate family dysfunction, a rare genetic condition, her first crush … and possible felony charges. Ever the optimist, she is determined to find happiness against all odds and embark on a great adventure.

John O’Brian added about Kimberly Akimbo: “It’s a beautiful little show that is a Best Musical winner that will make your heart so happy and will make you laugh.”

Created by the Emmy®-winning writer from “Schitt’s Creek,” this hilarious new musical flips the script on the greatest love story ever told. & JULIET asks: what would happen next if Juliet didn’t end it all over Romeo? Get  whisked away on a fabulous journey as she ditches her famous ending for a fresh beginning and a second chance at life and love—her way. Juliet’s new story bursts to life through a playlist of pop anthems as iconic as her name, including “Since U Been Gone‚” “Roar,” “Baby One More Time,” “Larger Than Life‚” “That’s The Way It Is,“ and “Can’t Stop the Feeling!”—all from the genius songwriter/producer behind more #1 hits than any other artist this century. Break free of the balcony scene and get into this romantic comedy that proves there’s life after Romeo. The only thing tragic would be missing it.

 

When asked about the complexities of setting up a season and what all goes into it O’Brien said “It usually can take between 2 and 4 years, sometimes longer. The journey of a show itself is that it could take 5-10 years before a show gets to Broadway, then another couple years before it gets to us. We are looking at what is in development, what is about to go to Broadway and then going to see the shows in New York and then piece them together. We just announced our 2024-25 season, but we are still in the middle of our 2023-24 season while I am building 2025-26 and 2026-27 right now. We are working with the agents and producers in New York to see what is a good fit. It’s putting together a package that represents all kinds of interests and styles and we think we have done that with this season.”
