The five shows in the Celebrity Attractions 2019-2020 Broadway season in Little Rock were announced. They include four musicals and one play. Two returning titles and three which will mark their debuts in the Little Rock market.
Up first is Jimmy Buffet’s Escape to Margaritaville. (November 1 – 3, 2019). It features many of Buffet’s standards as well as some original songs he wrote for the show.
Next is Wicked. Returning to Little Rock for the first time since 2013 (and the first time in the renovated Robinson Center Performance Hall), Wicked will kick off 2020 when it plays from January 1 through 19.
Waitress made Broadway history when it became the first musical with an all-female creative team. With songs written by Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles, it is inspired by Adrienne Shelley’s film of the same name. It will be in Little Rock from February 21 to 23 of 2020.
The Play that Goes Wrong lives up to its title. It concerns a troupe of actors performing a murder mystery where everything that could go wrong does. Repeatedly. It is a long-running hit in both London and New York. It will be in Little Rock on March 28 and 29 of 2020.
Finally, the Memory will Live Again as Cats returns to Little Rock. It has been several years since this Andrew Lloyd Webber-T.S. Eliot musical has been at Robinson Center. It will be there from June 5 to 7 of 2020.
