Avenue Q
Music and Lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx
Book by Jeff Whitty
Based on an Original Concept by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx
March 9 – April 2, 2023


Join the irreverent denizens of Avenue Q: part flesh, part plushy, people, puppets and all. Hilarious, charming and a little profane, Avenue Q will turn all expectations of acceptable discourse on its head. Follow the hero Princeton, fresh out of college, to his shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q which, it soon becomes clear, is not an ordinary neighborhood. Laughing out loud funny, toe-tappingly singable and full of warmth and humor, Avenue Q won the Tony for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, and now it’s going to win audiences’ hearts.

Book by Roger O. Hirson
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
June 1 – June 25, 2023


The unforgettable score of Pippin has shown multiple generations how to forge your own path in the world. Imaginatively presented through multiple revivals of a young person’s journey to self, join Music Theater Works’ staging among the toys and games that defined our childhoods. Winner of four 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival with some of the most infectiously memorable music in the business by four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theater giant Stephen Schwartz.

The Producers
Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
Original Direction and Choreography by Susan Stroman
August 11 – August 21, 2023

A big Broadway show based on Mel Brooks’ classic film, The Producers sets the standard for giant production numbers and modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. This hit won a record twelve Tony Awards when it premiered on Broadway.

Lerner and Loewe’s Brigadoon
Book and Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner
Music by Frederick Loewe
Original Dances Created by Agnes DeMille
October 19 – November 12, 2023

Audiences will get lost in Lerner and Loewe’s Brigadoon with the hero, heroine and the wonderful residents of this mythical place singing such standards as “Almost Like Being In Love,” “Come to Me, Bend to Me” and “Heather on the Hill,” made famous by the classic MGM film and numerous productions, each more beloved than the last.

Shrek: The Musical

Music by Jeanine Tesori
