The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts will kick off its star-packed and show-filled 2014-15 season with the annual Public Ticket Sale Day on Saturday, Sept. 27, with the box-office windows opening at 9 a.m.
Jill and Rich Switzer, the morning hosts on Legends Radio 100.3-FM, will welcome ticket-buyers between 8 and 10 a.m., and the Kravis Center will be offering breakfast treats and holding special prize drawings.
“Our upcoming season will be particularly exciting,” said Judith Mitchell, CEO of the Kravis Center. “With such a well-rounded roster of performances, the Kravis Center once again provides something for everyone, and this season reflects our commitment to offer programming that is as diverse as the community we serve.”
Just consider this incredible lineup of superstars scheduled to perform at the Kravis Center from October through May: Dave Mason, Audra McDonald, Joshua Bell, Boz Scaggs, Tony Bennett, Pilobolus, Celtic Woman, Diana Krall, Alton Brown, Lewis Black, Gino Vannelli, Cesar Millan and the three concerts of Michael Feinstein conducting the Kravis Center Pops Orchestra.
“In addition, our blockbuster lineup will offer an amazing array of Broadway fare, along with plenty of delights for those who love comedy, dance, classical music and jazz,” said Lee Bell, senior director of programming at the Kravis Center.
Of the six Kravis On Broadway shows scheduled for the 2014-15 season, tickets for The Book of Mormon (Dec. 16-21) are now sold out and tickets for Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella (Nov. 11-16) will go on sale on Sept. 27. Tickets for Flashdance The Musical (Jan. 27-Feb. 1) and Anything Goes (March 10-15) will go on sale on Dec. 13, and one week later, tickets will go on public sale for Memphis (April 7-12) and Pippin (April 28-May 3).
