10 Huge Productions set for Broadway in Detroit

The season at Broadway in Detroit at Fisher Theatre started last week with the running of Billy Elliot the Musical, the show where Kylend Hetherington’s blowing audiences away as the title role. Billy Elliot will be playing until September 16 and while it’s a must-see for sure, it’s only one of many Broadway hits that the theater will be putting on this year.

Of the ten shows that are booked, The Book of Mormon, La Cage Aux Folles, Catch Me If You Can, Jekyll & Hyde are all new acts. They’re also all musicals, as are the returning acts. Those much-beloved favorites are Jersey Boys, The Lion King, and Mary Poppins.

Executive director of theatrical booking, Alan Lichtenstein, says draws in more crowds. He did actually try to prevent that from happening though. After trying to get War Horse to make its way to Motor City, Lichtenstein simply couldn’t fit it into the schedule. He promises that it’s the first name on next season’s schedule; and that theater-goers won’t be disappointed with the lineup. Here’s the schedule for that lineup:

* Billy Elliot the Musical (Now — September 16)
* La Cage Aux Folles (September 25 — October 7)
* Mary Poppins (October 23 — October 28)
* Jekyll & Hyde (November 27 — December 2)
* Jersey Boys (December 12 — January 6)
* The Book of Mormon (March 12 — March 24)
* Memphis — The Musical (April 9 — April 21)
* Catch Me If You Can (May 7 — May 19)
