MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE
ANNOUNCES 2018/19 SEASON OF SHOWS

January 22, 2018 (Jupiter) – It’s time to bring art to life with the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s 2018/19 season!

The 2018/19 season will begin with Steel Magnolias (October 28 – November 11), a beloved American comedy/drama that examines the complexities of six women’s lives as they navigate love, loss and the fierceness of friendship. We continue with Disney Beauty and the Beast (November 27 – December 16), the spectacular and timeless Broadway blockbuster that tells the story of a tenacious beauty who meets a prince-turned-beast. Next up is a big splashy Broadway musical set to be announced April 1: a Tony Award®-nominated smash hit that will have audiences dancing in their seats (January 15 – February 10)! Then join us for the South Florida regional premiere of A Doll’s House, Part 2, an uproariously funny comedy fresh from its Broadway run that imagines Nora’s untold story after leaving her marriage in Henrik Ibsen’s famed play. Our incredible season ends with West Side Story, the Tony Award®-winning sizzling dance musical about two star-crossed lovers caught between warring street gangs.

“We are ecstatic to be producing in our 2018/19 season a selection of plays and musicals that everyone will be talking about,” said Andrew Kato, the Theatre’s producing artistic director and chief executive. “Steel Magnolias is an irreplaceable classic, and we are equally thrilled to be reimagining the magnificent powerhouse musicals Disney Beauty and the Beast and West Side Story. We are honored to be one of the first theaters granted the rights to produce A Doll’s House, Part 2 following its hit run on Broadway. Due to our agreement with the licensors, we’re not able to announce our fifth show until April 1, but we can assure everyone that this mega-musical will be popular. It’s so big that we’ve added a fourth week. Our audiences are going to flip out!”

In addition to its season productions (not included in subscriptions), the Theatre will present an exciting lineup of all-new limited engagements and several popular favorites. November will bring an extra-special benefit to the Theatre: 2017 Tony Award® winner Rachel Bay Jones, who will headline the Theatre’s sixth annual Tony Award® winner benefit concert. Students taking part in the Theatre’s acclaimed Youth Artists’ Chair summer internship program will present the drama To Kill a Mockingbird in August.

Steel Magnolias

The women of Truvy’s beauty salon are quick with a quip and hilarious repartee, unafraid to show their eccentric personalities.

Balanced between witty comedy and heartfelt drama, Steel Magnolias captures the complexities of six women’s lives as they navigate love, loss and the fierceness of friendship.

Fifteen years since closing the door and 138 years since Henrik penned the story, Nora returns to her beloved husband and children in A Doll’s House, Part 2. In this uproariously funny comedy, Nora wonders what she will find when she opens the door. Fresh from its Broadway run, Lucas Hnath explores Nora’s untold story in the newly imagined A Doll’s House, Part 2. Sponsored by Jodie and Dan Hunt and the Roy A. Hunt Foundation.

West Side Story

Book by Arthur Laurents
Music by Leonard Bernstein
Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Tony and Maria — two young, idealistic lovers — find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. They fight to find a place for themselves in a violent world, only to discover that love doesn’t always have a happy ending. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story takes the tale of two star-crossed lovers to new heights. Heart-wrenching and captivating, this musical will take you on a journey through passionate scenes, romantic ballads and fiery dance numbers.
