“Wicked” hasn’t yet opened at the Murat Theatre, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look ahead to what’s happening in the about-to-be-announced 2009/2010 Broadway in Indianapolis series — which contains four first-time-in-Indy musicals (and doesn’t really get rolling until December).

–“The Color Purple.” Oprah Winfrey’s production of the musical based on Alice Walker’s bestseller. Dec. 29-Jan. 3.

–“101 Dalmations: The Musical.” You know the story, but how the heck are they going to put it on stage? A team of top theatrical talent is figuring that out. The new show is hitting the road rather than going right to Broadway. March 9-14.

–“A Chorus Line.” On the heels of its recent New York revival, the “What I Did for Love” musical returns. April 20-25.

–“Legally Blonde.” Oh, my God, you guys, it’s the totally pinked out musical version of the hit. If your daughters already know the tunes, that’s because the Broadway production was aired on MTV. May 4-9.

–“Jersey Boys.” The best VH1 “Behind the Music” that you are ever likely to see on stage should be the big draw of the season. June 9-July 3.

There will also be outside-the-subscription revisits from “Chicago” and “Mamma Mia!”
