HTT announces 2014-15 season; 'Book of Mormon' returning


The 2011 Tony Award winner for Best Musical "The Book of Mormon" is returning to the Twin Cities as part of the Hennepin Theatre Trust's 2014-15 Broadway season, WCCO reports.

Co-written by "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, "The Book of Mormon" will be playing at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis Aug. 20-Sept. 7. The production had a record-breaking run in Minneapolis last February, the HTT says.

Other touring Broadway productions coming to the Orpheum in 2014 include "Dirty Dancing" (Oct. 7-19), "Irving Berlin's White Christmas" (Nov. 25-30) and the jukebox musical "Motown" (Dec. 16-28).

Productions coming in 2015 include "I Love Lucy: Live on Stage" (State Theatre, Jan. 20-25), Theater Latté Da's version of "Oliver!" (Pantages Theatre, Feb. 4-March 1), "Disney's Beauty and the Beast" (Orpheum, March 10-15), "Annie" (Orpheum, March 31-April 5), and "Jersey Boys" (Orpheum, April 28-May 5).

The HTT says the traveling productions of two of last year's hottest shows on Broadway will also be making their way to the Orpheum in 2015: "Pippin," which took the 2013 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, will play Feb. 17-22; while "Kinky Boots," which won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Musical, is set for July 28-Aug. 2.

“A lot of these shows do have deep meaning, but if you don’t want to find something deep, you can just have a great time," HTT President Tom Hoch told the Star Tribune.
