Shows on the November 2024 trip

The Outsiders
Best Musical Tony Award + 3 additional wins
12 Tony Award Nominations total
Tulsa, OK, 1967. Ponyboy Curtis and his chosen family of Outsiders are in a fight against the Socs and quest for purpose in the world. This gripping new musical, based on the novel by S.E. Hinton and film by Francis Ford Coppola, is the timeless tale of haves and have-nots, of protecting what’s yours, and fighting for what could be. Click here for more about this show.


Best Play Tony Award + 4 additional wins
13 Tony Award Nominations total – the most Tony-nominated play of all time!
In a music studio in 1976, an up-and-coming rock band recording a new album finds itself on the cusp of superstardom. The pressures could spark their breakup – or their breakthrough. Music by Arcade Fire’s Will Butler. (Yes, it’s a play but it has a lot of music.) Click here for more about this show.
