Those that find joy in new theatrical discoveries are in luck. The just announced 2016–17 Broadway at the Paramount season features four fresh shows that have never graced a Seattle stage. Tony and Grammy winner Beautiful: The Carole King Musical kicks things off in October with a dazzling collection of the singer-songwriter's classic tunes. Dance fans mark your calendars, as An American in Paris brings its stunning ballet-inspired, Tony-winning Christopher Wheeldon choreography to town in May. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, the 2015 Tony-winner for Best Play, closes out the season in July. Three other shows round out the slate: a theatrical adaptation of the Oscar-nominated Finding Neverland, The King and I (last year's Tony winner for Best Revival), and Roundabout Theatre Compnay's production of the classic Cabaret.
In addition to the main subscription lineup, the season options features some heavy hitters: Hedwig and the Angry, the 20th Anniversary Tour of Rent, and the Farewell Tour for Mamma Mia! (which closed its 14-year run on Broadway last August).
Broadway at the Paramount season subscriptions are on sale now at ticketmaster.com and run $189–$594.
