Blumenthal Performing Arts is pleased to announce another extraordinary lineup for its upcoming 2018-19 PNC Broadway Lights season.
London 1940. The Blackout. A siren sounds…
New Adventures return with one of their most popular and beloved productions, Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella – a thrilling and evocative love story set in London during the Second World War.
Matthew Bourne’s vivid and touching interpretation of the classic fairy tale has, at its heart, a true war-time romance. A chance meeting results in a magical night for Cinderella and her dashing young RAF pilot, together just long enough to fall in love before being parted by the horrors of the Blitz.
Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella takes the audience into the heart of Prokofiev’s magnificent score, and the sights and sounds of war-torn London, with surround sound designed by Paul Groothuis, and a specially commissioned recording of a 60 piece orchestra, Lez Brotherston’s Olivier Award winning designs and lighting by Olivier Award-winning Neil Austin.
“Charlotte theater fans are among the best in the country. Their exceptional support and enthusiasm has made us a top destination for the very best touring Broadway productions,” said Blumenthal President/CEO Tom Gabbard. “Audiences here have access to more current Broadway shows and beloved classics than in most other cities across the country. The season ahead continues the tradition of being able to see the Best of Broadway close to home.”
Season ticket holders looking for maximum value can opt for a 9-show package. The 9th option this season is Falsettos, direct from its Lincoln Center Theater Broadway revival which received five Tony® nominations including Best Musical Revival.
PNC Broadway Lights season tickets continue to be Charlotte’s best entertainment value. Season ticket buyers have guaranteed renewable seats and enjoy the best seats at the best price, as they lock in their seats before single tickets go on sale and prices rise. Season buyers also can choose an extended payment plan that allows them to pay for their season tickets in up to ten installments.
Season ticket holders will also enjoy the right to swap up to four of their season shows for anything else coming next season and the opportunity to buy tickets to additional Broadway shows and special attractions before sales open to the public.
Season subscriptions for new and returning customers are on sale now through May 6.
