Sister Act is Broadway’s feel-amazing musical comedy smash! The New York Post calls it “ridiculously funny,” and audiences are jumping to their feet in total agreement! Featuring original music by 8-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors), Sister Act tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look—a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason to rejoice!

“To hear people laugh and cheer the way they do at Sister Act — a show people think they know but are pleasantly surprised to discover is not what they were expecting — is a magical experience for a producer,” says Producer Whoopi Goldberg. “Happily, audiences across the country will be able to get in on the fun this fall when Deloris and her fabulous sisters start spreading the love nationwide.”

Sister Act will play at the famous Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. The theatre is owned and operated by The Nederlander Organization. Founded by David T. Nederlander, the Nederlander Organization began in 1912 with the purchase of a 99-year lease on the old Detroit Opera House. Now into their third generation of theatre development, ownership, management, and production, the Nederlander Organization is clearly one of the largest, most experienced operators of live theatre in the world. Under the guidance of its Chairman, James M. Nederlander, the company owns and/or operates more than 20 stage venues worldwide.

Audiences will be transported around the world as more than 50 horses and an international cast play and demonstrate their intimate bond. The 1,393 square meter stage features a real carousel and a magically appearing 302,000-litre lake in front of a stunning video backdrop the size of three IMAX screens. Odysseo is a two-hour dream that will move the heart and touch the soul. It is an evening that you will never forget.

From your seats you will become part of a truly immersive, three-dimensional experience as a state-of-the-art video screen projects images that transport you to a world of dreams. Beginning in a misty, enchanted forest where a herd of horses graze and frolic under a sky of rolling clouds and a setting sun, Odysseo travels to some of nature’s greatest wonders. Without ever leaving your seats you will see the desert and savanna of Africa, the American Southwest, the Northern Lights, an ice cave, verdant fields, and Easter Island.

Shrouded in a blue mist rising from the earth, you will find yourself amid a herd of grazing horses, admiring the splendour of the setting sun. Lying on a bed of green, you can contemplate what the stars dream about, what horses dream about. Follow the northern lights as they dance across the heavens. Revel in the birth of spring.

This new production is a celebration of the beauty and harmony of the meeting of two worlds: those of horse and human. As friends, partners and inseparable performers, they will lead you on a journey to another world – a world of dreams.

Back by “Popular” demand! Variety calls Wicked “a cultural phenomenon,” and when it last played at the Segerstorm Center for the Arts, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy® and three Tony Awards®, Wicked is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times).

Long before Dorothy dropped in, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious, and very popular. How these two unlikely friends end up as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch makes for the most spellbinding new musical in years and makes for “the most complete— and completely satisfying—new musical in a long time” (USA Today).

Wicked is a musical that opened on Broadway at the Gershwin Theater October 30, 2003. It is touted as the untold story of the witches of Oz and is loosely based on the best-selling novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire. The musical features music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman. With musical staging by Tony Award winner Wayne Cilento, Wicked is directed by Tony winner Joe Mantello.
