Finally the rumors have been confirmed. JERSEY BOYS will open at the National Theatre in DC on October 10 for a two month run (or more?). Tickets go on sale on Sunday May 10th. This is the first tour stop I know of on the East Coast. It is not to be missed.
==============================================================

The Hippodrome has announced the rest of their 2009 – 2010 season and there are a few
hightlights including the previous announced shows- YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, IN THE HEIGHTS (which will not play DC any time soon), and a 4 week sit-down engagement of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. All other shows play for two weeks with the exception of MAMMA MIA.

10/20 – FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
11/23 – MAMMA MIA (non-subscription)
12/? – DREAMGIRLS
1/12/10 – YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN
2/23/10 – IN THE HEIGHTS
3/16/10 – STOMP
SPRING – PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
6/1 – THE 39 STEPS

Subscription prices are $124 to $557. There were many complaints from patrons last year about the kids theme season which included, CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG and
THE GRINCH. But the Hippodrome will not feature any controversial shows this time after playing AVENUE Q and the upcoming SPRING AWAKENING.
===============================================================

Center Stage has also announced their new season this past week and for financial reasons will cut their schedule back for mainstage shows and add a Cabaret schedule at a later date. All in all they will offer “at least 14 wildly varying productions in two theatres.”
