Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story on Stage (June 7-12) added to Broadway Subscription Series!

Some things are worth waiting for, and I think the last show in our 2015-2016 Subscription Series is one of them!  If you remember this iconic movie with Patrick Swayze, full of love, fabulous music, and fun dancing, then you can only imagine how great it's going to be when experienced live!  The reviews have been awesome, and our subscribers have the first option to get the best seats for the time of their lives!  


We also want to congratulate Jenn Potts, a film maker from Fitchburg, who won Broadway tickets at the "Pink Martini mix, mingle and network event" last week. 


Read on for more about what's coming to the theatre, and please like us on Facebook for the latest contests and promotions.


See you at the theatre!
