BEST OF BROADWAY TOUR

Apr. 26-29, 2022
May 17-20, 2022

$2249 per person, double occupancy
Land only and single supplement pricing available

Both trips are at capacity. Please contact Lee Ann Bakros, 515.974.5358, for options.

Please read everything VERY CAREFULLY before signing up as there are many changes to travel.

Past travelers have expressed an interest in returning to Broadway in Spring 2022. We have researched and tentatively committed to at least one of the two dates.

If we do not have enough travelers registered by Oct. 15, 2021, the trip will be canceled without penalties incurred by either The Playhouse or the traveler. 

What’s changed?

  • To keep prices at previous levels, we will be traveling Tuesday-Friday, seeing shows on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings. There is still the opportunity to add a fourth show at a Wednesday matinee.
  • At this time, theatres are requiring proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test 72-hours prior to attendance. They also require masks. It is possible rules will change by the spring – we will receive requirements 14 days prior to our trip – but if you sign up for the trip you are agreeing to show proof of vaccination or take a test and you are agreeing to wear a mask.
  • Tickets in most theatres are digital. We have not yet heard about playbills.
  • At this time, many restaurants are also requiring proof of vaccination or negative COVID test and masks.
  • At this time, Delta is requiring all passengers to wear masks. It is possible rules will change by the spring, but if you sign up for the trip you are agreeing to wear a mask.

What’s the same?

  • Your trip includes two theatre shows with the group and a third theatre show of your choosing; roundtrip airfare on Delta; three nights stay at the Renaissance Times Square; and transportation between the hotel and airport.
  • Playhouse executive director David R. Kilpatrick will chaperone one trip and artistic director Katy Merriman will chaperone the other.
  • Allied Travel will offer travel insurance. To learn more about it, please contact Julie at Allied Travel, 515-270-7070.

Shows the group will see together are

The Music Man

Two-time Tony, Grammy, and Emmy winner Hugh Jackman will make his highly anticipated return to Broadway as Professor Harold Hill in Meredith Willson’s beloved classic, The Music Man. Two-time Tony-winning superstar Sutton Foster will star as Marian Paroo. The production is directed by four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks with choreography by Tony winner Warren Carlyle. 

There is trouble in River City when con artist Harold Hill arrives in town. There’s only one problem with his plans—he falls in love with the straight-laced librarian, Marian. Featuring songs such as “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Trouble,” “‘Til There Was You,” “Pickalittle” and “Gary, Indiana.”

 

 

Six

Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived. From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the wives of Henry VIII take the mic to reclaim their identities out of the shadow of their infamous spouse—remixing 500 years of historical heartbr

eak into an exuberant celebration of 21st-century girl power. The female cast are backed by an all-female band, the “Ladies in Waiting.”

Six is co-directed by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage, featuring choreography by Carrie-Anne Ingrouille.
