Broadway in Detroit is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year with a lineup of seven standout theatrical productions for its 2022-23 Subscription Season. The shows kick off in June with Mean Girls at the Fisher Theatre.
“For our 60th Anniversary season, we have put together a really spectacular season,” Alan Lichtenstein, executive director of Broadway In Detroit, in a press release. “Six of our seven shows are making their Detroit premiers. This amazing lineup of blockbuster shows is one you will never forget!”
Following Mean Girls is My Fair Lady at the Detroit Opera House in July. In August, Ain’t Too Proud — The Life and Times of the Temptations, the Tony-nominated musical written by Detroit native Dominique Morisseau, comes to the Detroit Opera House as well.
Then, Broadway in Detroit presents Dear Evan Hansen, a musical that has won six Tony Awards and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album, at the Fisher Theater from September to October. Tina: The Tina Turner Musical is at the Detroit Opera House in December, followed by Beetlejuice, also at the Opera House, from January to February. The season wraps up with Jagged Little Pill, a new musical based on the life of singer Alanis Morissette, at the Fisher Theatre in February.
“Our fans have been eagerly waiting for Dear Evan Hansen to arrive, and we could not be more excited to bring Ain’t Too Proud home to the Motor City,” Lichtenstein says. “Detroit audiences are going to be some of the first in the country to see Tina, Beetlejuice, and Jagged Little Pill. And Mean Girls and the stunning revival of My Fair Lady are the cherries on top of our biggest celebration season ever.”
Subscription Season tickets, which start at $425, include access to all seven shows. With an additional priority purchase, subscribers can also nab tickets to Hamilton, which is not part of the Subscription Season but will be at the Fisher Theatre in November and December.
