With the 2012-13 Broadway season now at an end (April 25 was the cut-off date for eligibility for the 67th Annual Tony Awards), Playbill.com offers a four-part look at the season. Here are the 2012-13 special engagements.
From the brief return of the Tony Award-winning musical Fela!, with its original Tony Award-nominated star Sahr Ngaujah, to The Rascals reunion in The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream, a new concert event written by guitarist Steven Van Zandt, here is an overview of the six special events that opened in time for the 2013 Tonys, which will take place June 9 at Radio City Music Hall.

Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
