DPAC shows announced

I mused yesterday what would be filling the new Teer stage at the new Durham Performing Arts Center (across the street from the not so new county lockup).

Lo, my question is answered:
With today’s announcement, the 2008-2009 premiere season of Broadway Carolina has the following confirmed schedule for shows at the Durham Performing Arts Center:

* “Rent” - January 20-25, 2009
* “Fiddler On The Roof” - March 17-22, 2009
* “Legally Blonde The Musical” - April 14-19, 2009
* “The Color Purple” - May 12-17, 2009

Other shows and special performances will be added as they are confirmed. Research Triangle audiences can expect a Wicked second season in 2009-2010, when many more of Broadway’s biggest blockbusters come to the Durham Performing Arts Center.

“This region can expect national touring acts and Broadway direct from the source,” said J.L. “Lynn” Singleton, president of PFM. “We manage theater venues in markets of similar size to the Research Triangle. Combine that with the fact that the Nederlander Organization is a Broadway institution, and we think the Broadway Carolina series will provide audiences with great experiences that they’ll remember for a lifetime.”

Tickets will be available at an undetermined date in the "spring of 2008." Prices have not yet been announced.

UPDATE: No word on when "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, the Revival" is coming to town.

  • Oh, fuck yeah. I've been waiting for "Legally Blonde The Musical" for ages.

  • Actually there was quite a good performance of Charlie Brown The Musical by a Duke student theatre group back in '04 or '05, I forget which.

    As for DPAC. Oh brother. How underwhelming.

    Oh, but it will bring in people from North Rawley and Carrie! And they'll also admire our county jail! Boo-yah!
