What do Annie, Jesus Christ Superstar, and My Fair Lady all have in common? They're hit Broadway shows back on tour, and theyr'e all headed to Columbus, Georgia's RiverCenter for the Performing Arts within the next year. Other notable titles in RiverCenter's 2022-23 season include A Magical Cirque Christmas, Tootsie, Anastasia, and Madagascar the Musical.
“All of us at RiverCenter are as pleased as can be with this coming season,” said RiverCenter Executive Director Norman Easterbrook. “Despite some nearly insurmountable challenges of the past couple years, RiverCenter is back in the business of bringing world class, professional entertainment to the region."
In addition to the aforementioned Broadway tours, RiverCenter will also host a performance by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, several children's shows, a new concert series featuring their theatre organ, and three tour originations.
"We are especially proud that we will be originating three national touring productions right here in Columbus," said Easterbrook. "These will be the national tours of Jesus Christ Superstar, A Magical Cirque Christmas, and the outstanding Aquila Theatre education tour. Projects like these not only give area residents the opportunity to see the very first public performance of a fresh and new national tour, but also will have a significant impact on our local economy."
