PBS has set broadcast dates for the fall lineup of its Great Performances series, comprised of four titles recently seen on the London stage and an Elizabethan classic with a contemporary twist.

Great Performances’ “Broadway’s Best” lineup, as previously announced, begins November 1 at 9 PM ET with the recent West End production of 42nd Street, directed by co-writer Mark Bramble and choreographed by Randy Skinner.

Four titles follow each Friday in November: The King and I (starring Kelli O’Hara and Ken Watanabe) November 8 at 9 PM, Red (with Alfred Molina and Alfred Enoch) November 15 at 9 PM, the Shakespeare in the Park staging of Much Ado About Nothing (starring Danielle Brooks and directed by Kenny Leon) November 22 at 9 PM, and the London staging of the Tony-winning Kinky Boots November 29 at 9 PM.

Documentaries are in the spotlight in PBS’ complete fall roster, which includes Ken Burns’ eight-part, 16-hour Country Music documentary, Lynn Novick’s College Behind Bars, and a new film about Tony nominee Raúl Juliá.

PBS station members can view the entire Great Performances “Broadway’s Best” lineup beginning November 1 via Passport (contact local PBS station for details).
