‘Mormon’ leads all-first-time-in-Indy Broadway series

For the first time in, well, as long as I can remember, two things have happened.

1. The Broadway in Indianapolis series has nothing but first-time-in-Indy shows on its just-announced subscription lineup for next year.

2. The Broadway series we are getting is on par with Cincy and Louisville.

The anchoring show is "The Book of Mormon" (see my review of the Chicago production here). Rounding out the all-musical schedule are "The Addams Family" (rewritten and, according to many, improved since the Broadway production), "Flashdance," "Ghost," and "Memphis." The downside: Only one, "Flashdance," will be offered in the Fall. The rest are loaded into 2014 leading up to "Mormon" in June, 2014.

"Wicked" will also return but as an add-on in November.
