The Phoenix Theatre Company is announcing its 101st season, which includes 10 shows, all presented at its multi-venue complex in the heart of the Central Arts District. The seasons kicks off July 8 and includes fresh-from-Broadway hits, returning favorites, classic musicals and a world premiere of an original production developed through The Phoenix Theatre Company’s Festival of New American Theatre.
“At some point, each of us is going to face a serious obstacle. It can be an external force or an internal crisis, but the result is the same: we find ourselves at a crossroads. If we’re lucky, we emerge from that experience changed for the better. Each play in our new season tells that kind of story. These stories inspire us. They lift us up and unite us. We see ourselves in these heroes and it reminds us that we are stronger than our fears.”Michael Barnard, Producing Artistic Director
