The Adrienne Arsht Center announced its Broadway in Miami season, presented by Bank of America, on Monday, March 28, at a special announcement event attended by members of the press, groups sales leaders, subscribers, and other special guests. Five of Broadway’s biggest musicals are set for their Miami premieres in the Sanford and Dolores Ziff Ballet Opera House next season.

Appropriately enough, the season kicks off next October during the time of ghosts and goblins with the boldly mischievous new musical comedy THE ADDAMS FAMILY, directed by four-time Tony® Award winner Jerry Zaks. The Center was one of the original investors in this show more than five years ago—ensuring that Miami audiences will be among the first outside New York to see this uproarious new musical. At the announcement event, Cortney Wolfson, who plays daughter Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, performed one of her hit songs from the show.

The season concludes seven months later with one of the most acclaimed blockbusters ever, THE LION KING. Based on the beloved Disney film, The Lion King is more than a musical—it is a landmark in the history of Broadway: breathtakingly beautiful, thrillingly moving, and simply unforgettable.

In between, there’s the hilarious SHREK, THE MUSICAL, featuring a terrific score, big laughs, and great dancing; MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, a stand-up-and-cheer new musical inspired by the historic recording session that brought together one time only the music icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins; and the deliciously romantic COME FLY AWAY, featuring the incomparable vocals of Frank Sinatra, a swinging big band on stage, and the extraordinary choreography of Twyla Tharp.
