Associated Bank Broadway at the Marcus Center and Broadway Across America-Milwaukee announced the shows to look forward to in the 2018-19 season of Broadway at the Marcus Center.

“Our 2018-2019 Season is another proven winner – due in no small part to our patrons consistent, strong support of Broadway at the Marcus Center,” said Paul Mathews, Marcus Center President & CEO.

In chronological order, the upcoming shows begin with "SOMETHING ROTTEN!" 

This show, playing Oct. 16-21, 2018, follows the story of two brothers in 1595 who are desperate to write a hit play and end up writing the world's very first musical. This is a hilarious story that combines "The Producers," "Spamalot" and "The Book of Mormon" all in one according to New York Magazine.

Next up is the famous "Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas." The show features songs and set designs from the classic Dr. Seuss tale. Families can catch this show Nov. 20-25, 2018. 

"The Book of Mormon" is back by popular demand Jan. 2-6, 2019. This show tells the story of a mismatched pair of missionaries sent across the world to spread the Good Word. "The Book of Mormon" is a nine-time Tony Award-winning Best Musical.

Another familiar story, "Fiddler on the Roof" is coming to Milwaukee Feb. 12-17, 2019. New York Magazine calls the show "An entirely fresh, funny and gorgeous new production."

"The Phantom of the Opera" will be in town March 6-17 in 2019. This production features a new set design and exciting special effects involving the legendary chandelier. Critics are calling the show "bigger and better than ever."

Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The Kind and I" is playing April 9-14 in 2019. The play is set in 1860's Bangkok and tells the story of the unconventional relationship between the King of Siam and a British schoolteacher. 

"Come From Away" is showing May 7-12, 2019 for its Milwaukee debut. The show tells the true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and a small town that welcomed them.

Lastly, "Anastasia" is coming to the Marcus Center July 23-28, 2019. This play follows the story of a young woman traveling the world to discover the mystery of her past.
