PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – The Adrienne Arsht Center and Broward Center are announcing their upcoming season Broadway Across America season and there are more than a few South Florida premieres.

To make up for lost time since COVID-19 shuttered shows, Broadway in South Florida is stepping it up even more. The 2022-2023 season may be the most exciting yet.

“Between the two venues, South Florida audiences will enjoy multiple blockbuster titles and series premieres right in their backyard,” Susie Krajsa, president of Broadway Across America said.

Four South Florida premieres will be at the Broward Center.

The hottest show on Broadway, “Six,” opens Oct. 11 and runs through Oct. 23, 2022, Harper Lee’s classic “To Kill a Mockingbird” opens March 28 and runs through April 9, 2023; singer Tina Turner’s story is told “Tina, The Tina Turner Musical,” opening on Jan. 17 and running through Jan. 29, 2023, and “Beetlejuice: The Musical,” opening on June 13 through June 25, 2023.

Three popular shows return to South Florida, the blockbuster “Hamilton,” the ever-popular hit “Chicago,” and “Mean Girls,” based on the movie.

If you’d rather see “Six” in Miami, that’s coming to the Adrienne Arsht Center, along with “My Fair Lady,” and for the first time ever in Miami “Disney’s Aladdin” and “Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations.”

If you need more Broadway, there’s the anticipated return of “Wicked.”
