It’s been a banner year for the North Charleston Performing Arts Center’s Best of Broadway series — Wicked was wicked awesome (and record-breaking), and Les Miz killed it.
Now we can look ahead to the 2013-14 season, which will be anchored by Jersey Boys (Nov. 5-10) — if you’re unfamiliar, it’s a story of how four blue-collar kids became some of the greatest successes in pop music in a group called The Four Seasons. Then in December, Sister Act, based on the movie of the same name, is a feel-good musical comedy about a wannabe diva who witnesses a crime and ends up hiding from the cops in a convent.
In 2014, The Addams Family is Jan. 14-15, and Memphis is Feb. 18-19 — it’s a fun, lively musical about the underground dance clubs in Memphis in the 1950s. Million Dollar Quartet (April 16-17, 2014) is a Tony award-winner about the famed recording session that brought together Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins for this first time. As if this wasn’t enough, the series also includes a special performance from none other than Bill Cosby.
All events will be held at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center, and tickets are on sale now. For ticket purchasing information, call (843) 202-ARTS, or go to NorthCharlestonColiseumPAC.com.
