The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical
The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical is a "winning adaptation" (The Hollywood Reporter) of the best-selling Disney-Hyperion novel by Rick Riordan. As a son of Poseidon, Percy has newly discovered powers he can’t control, monsters on his trail, and he is on an epic quest to find Zeus’s lightning bolt and prevent a war between the gods.

A music-packed theatrical thrill-ride, Saloon, is fun for the entire family. A world where theater and circus collide, Saloon combines strength, agility and original choreograph for a knee-slappin’, show-stopping production.

A Bronx Tale
Feb. 26 - March 3
Based on the stoops of the Bronx in the 1960s, this streetwise musical is directed by two-time Academy Award®-winner Robert De Niro and four-time Tony Award®-winner Jerry Zaks. Inspired by Chazz Palminteri’s real-life story, the music and choreography of A Bronx Tale is “wonderful and refreshing” (The New York Times).
A story that has endured for the last 30 years, this tale is about family, loyalty and a triumphant spirit. Divided between the father he loves and the father-figure he’d love to be, A Bronx Tale’s message is about the choices we make and the impact it has on those we love.
Circus and science collide in a gorgeous homage to the power of air. Flying umbrellas, larger-than-life balloons, giant kites floating over the audience and the biggest snow globe you’ve ever seen will make you gasp in wonder and laugh until it hurts.
Air Play is a circus-style adventure of two siblings journeying through a surreal land of air, transforming the ordinary into objects of uncommon beauty. Fabrics dance in the wind, balloons have a mind of their own, confetti turns into the night sky, and an enormous canopy of hovering silk brings to life the very air we breathe.
