It will be a few months before RiverCenter for the Performing Arts will announced its Broadway series. I have no idea what shows will be presented here next year.
The Springer Opera House announces its season next week. Again, I have no idea what Paul Pierce has planned.
People always ask me what's coming up, but I really, truly don't know.
What I do know is what Atlanta's Broadway Across America has on its season 2011-12 season. I got the release today.
Here's the schedule:
"Wicked," is about two girls who meet in the land of Oz. One is born with emerald green skin and is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and popular. They grow up to be the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good. Sept. 14-Oct. 9.
"Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical," is based on the classic holiday tale of the Grinch and the people of Whoville. In the stage version, Max the Dog narrates. Nov. 29-Dec. 4.
