The season kicks off Jan. 28-March 29, 2015, with the Tony Award-winning Jerry Herman-Harvey Fierstein musical La Cage aux Folles, which will be followed by Cole Porter's Anything Goes from April 8-June 7.
The world-premiere musical October Sky, written by composer-lyricist Michael Mahler and book writer Aaron Thielen, will be staged Aug. 19-Oct. 18. Universal Stage Productions, which also brought Wicked, Billy Elliot and Bring It On to the stage, are producing the new musical in association with the Marriott.
Here's how it's billed: "It was 1957, and Sputnik lights up the October sky over the small Appalachian mining town of Coalwood, West Virginia. Homer Hickam, the teenage son of a coal miner, is determined not to end up like generations before him. Inspired by the world’s race to space, Homer and his buddies begin to light up the starry skies with their homemade rockets and dreams of glory. This rich and emotional story is for anyone who ever dreamed of something better and reached for the stars."
