Miller Auditorium recently announced an all-star lineup of five Broadway productions that it will be hosting during its 2019-2020 season. The series will be starting off in time for the holidays with “Dr. Seuss’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas!” running from Nov. 15-17 and will continue into the new year with “Les Miserables” in January, “WAITRESS” in March, and finally “Blue Man Group” and “CATS” in May.
“Our goal with this season was diversity,” said Thom Cooper, associate marketing director at Miller Auditorium. “We wanted a combination of family-friendly stuff mixed in with shows that people have been asking for.”
This lineup has certainly achieved the goal of diversity by offering up a healthy combination of new productions and venerated classics that audiences have been requesting for years. In particular, this season will mark the first time that Miller Auditorium has hosted “CATS” since 2008, making its inclusion in the season a much anticipated one.
“‘CATS’ has always been a popular one,” Cooper said. “It’s been around for more than 30 years, and it’s only just now gone back out on tour. There’s a whole generation who’ve never seen it because it wasn’t even on Broadway for a while. People have been asking for it, and we want to give them what they want to see.”
Miller Auditorium has yet to announce when tickets for the 2019-2020 season will go up for sale. However, when they do go up, it is possible that they will sell out quickly, especially when you consider that both “Les Miserables” and “CATS” are being featured.
“We always hope everything sells out,” said Cooper. “We managed to do it with “The Lion King” last year. We’re hoping that a lot of people are going to want to see the shows we’ve picked. Especially “CATS,” since it hasn’t been out for so long.”
With a strong mix of productions on offer, Miller Auditorium’s Broadway lineup for 2019-2020 is sure to leave both theatre enthusiasts and general audiences pleased, and provides much to look forward to in the months to come.
