Broadway blockbusters include WICKEDFROZEN, and AIN’T TOO PROUD: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS Philadelphia premieres of GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY and MRS. DOUBTFIRE … and refreshed revivals of COMPANY, FUNNY GIRL,and MAMMA MIA!

The Kimmel Cultural Campus and The Shubert Organization are proud to announce the 2023-24 Broadway series with a stellar lineup of extraordinary productions, including Broadway’s newest hits, hot revivals, and adored classics. The season features something for every taste, boasting 12 amazing shows with a combined 19 Tony®Awards and 17 Drama DeskTM Awards. This year’s 7-show subscription package includes: Wicked, Company, Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations, Mrs. Doubtfire, Girl from the North Country, Frozen, and Funny Girl.

The 2023-24 Broadway lineup includes several productions in which traditional or well-known stories are told through a new or unexpected lens. Wicked takes a deeper look into the Land of Oz, where an initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships. Company transforms Stephen Sondheim’s troubled bachelor Bobby into female protagonist Bobbie, allowing audiences to experience the endearing story of turning 35-years-old through a woman’s eyes in the 21st-century. Hadestown intertwines two classic Greek-mythology tales: that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone, as it transports audiences on an unforgettable journey to the underworld and back.

Familiar stories from Hollywood are also part of the 2023-24 Broadway season with a number of films-turned-musicals – and a musical-turned-film! Disney’s Frozen broke movie box office records worldwide when it opened in 2013 and it has experienced the same excitement as a stage show. The season kicks off with the ferociously funny fan favorite Mean Girls, nominated for 12 Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Direction of a Musical; the 2004 film has been a guilty pleasure for nearly 20 years. Mrs. Doubtfire has warmed hearts since the 1993 film starring Robin Williams and has audiences clamoring for more with the live musical adaptation. Conversely, after debuting on Broadway in 1964, Funny Girl made its way to the big screen in 1968, with Barbra Streisand in the titular role, and became the highest grossing film in the U.S. that year. Mamma Mia!gained attention as a musical and became a blockbuster movie in 2008, and Wickedis expected to hit the big screen in 2024.

Many of the 2023-24 Broadway season productions tell stories of female triumph over adversity. This includes the revival of Wicked, where Elphaba learns to accept and reclaim her identity and embrace her “wicked” self. In Frozen, Elsa searches to find her full power alongside her sister, Anna, while in Company, Bobbie struggles with coming to terms with societal expectations and norms. Funny Girl sees Fanny, a powerful and talented woman, defying her own hardships and following her dreams no matter what anyone has to say about it.

“From the iconic music of The Temptations, Sting, and Bob Dylan to family-friendly favorites like Frozen, our 2023-24 season continues our tradition of presenting the very best of Broadway at the Miller Theater and the Academy of Music,” said Matías Tarnopolsky, President and CEO of The Philadelphia Orchestra and Kimmel Center, Inc. “We look forward to sharing exciting new productions and cherished favorites spanning decades and genres–including the return of Wicked, celebrating its 20thanniversary, and the refreshing revivals of Funny Girl and Company.”
