COMING TO THE BROWARD CENTER
Mean Girls is the hilarious hit musical from an award-winning creative team, including book writer Tina Fey (“30 Rock”), composer Jeff Richmond (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and director Casey Nicolaw (The Book of Mormon).
Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois.

MISS SAIGON MUSICAL SOARS
ONCE AGAIN ON A NEW NATIONAL TOUR
AT THE KRAVIS CENTER
A real juggernaut of a show, Miss Saigon once again is on a new national tour in 2020, following its revival on Broadway in 2017. Adapted from Puccini’s operatic tragedy Madame Butterfly, it’s a stunning love story, a gritty war drama and an all-out cabaret piece wrapped up in one.
With impeccable singing and set design working hand in hand, to bring the hardship and passion of Alain Boublil and Claude Schonberg’s legendary musical to life, this incredible 25th anniversary revival production is an enchanting and evocative theatrical experience, one you won’t forget in a hurry.
The centerpiece of the show is, of course, the spectacular helicopter scene,which has been thoroughly revamped for this production, and employs a stunning mix of projections, lighting and a to-scale model which descends from the rafters, rotor blades spinning !
The story is set in the final days of the Vietnam War, Miss Saigon charts the burgeoning romance of an American GI, Chris and a vulnerable local girl, Kim, who works in a steamy Saigon go-go bar. From the moment they meet, Chris is immediately drawn to her, determined to protect her from the horror surrounding them.
Chris and Kim pledge their love for each other, but not even their love is enough to keep the Vietnam War at bay forever, and when Saigon falls, Chris is forced to flee the country. Will Chris return to Kim? You must see the show to find out.
Miss Saigon will be playing in the Dreyfoos Hall Theatre, at the Kravis Center from March 3 to 8, 2020.
