The Fabulous Fox Theatre has announced its spectacular 2013-2014 U.S. Bank Broadway Series, which includes six season ticket package shows and seven specials. ONCE, winner of eight 2012 Tony Awards® including Best Musical, will make its St. Louis debut along with the hilarious and heavenly SISTER ACT and London’s smash hit musical, WE WILL ROCK YOU.

The 2013-2014 season begins and ends with the talents of the incomparable Andrew Lloyd Webber – the brilliant Broadway revival of EVITA will open the season in October of 2013 and the all-new tour of THE MUSIC OF ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER serves as this season’s thrilling finale.
Evita ~ October 8-20, 2013
Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award®-winning musical returns at last! Eva Perón used her beauty and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world — while her greed, outsized ambition and fragile health made her one of the most tragic. EVITA tells Eva's passionate and unforgettable true story, and features some of theater's most beautiful songs, including "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" and "High Flying, Adored." Don't miss the stunning new production of EVITA, directed by Tony Award winning director Michael Grandage and choreographed by Rob Ashford, that Channel 4 New York calls “The hottest ticket in town!” EVITA is presented by Dance St. Louis.
Sister Act ~ November 19-December 1, 2013
SISTER ACT is Broadway's feel-amazing musical comedy smash! The New York Post calls it "Ridiculously fun,” and audiences are jumping to their feet in total agreement! Featuring original music by eight-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors), SISTER ACT tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look—a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, SISTER ACT is reason to rejoice!
ELF The Musical ~ December 17-29, 2013
Presented by Grand Center, Inc., ELF is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, discover his true identity, and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner ELF.
Based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema hit, ELF features songs by Tony Award® nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer), with a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone).
We Will Rock You ~ March 18-30, 2014
From London’s West End, the worldwide smash hit musical by Queen and Ben Elton finally comes to the U.S. with a limited engagement stop in St. Louis. WE WILL ROCK YOU features the greatest hits of the legendary British rock group, Queen. Now in its 11th year in London and seen by a staggering 15 million people worldwide, this hilarious, multi-award-winning and record-breaking phenomenon boasts a fantastic score of killer Queen tunes that you just can't resist singing along to, such as “Another One Bites The Dust,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “We Are The Champions,” “Bohemian Rhapsody” and of course, “We Will Rock You.” It's the world champion of musicals and the show that rocks harder than any other, so don't miss the party!
Once ~ April 8-20, 2014

Featuring an impressive ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments onstage, ONCE tells the enchanting tale of a Dublin street musician who's about to give up on his dream when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his haunting love songs. As the chemistry between them grows, his music soars to powerful new heights... but their unlikely connection turns out to be deeper and more complex than your everyday romance. Emotionally captivating and theatrically breathtaking, ONCE draws you in from the very first note and never lets go. It's an unforgettable story about going for your dreams... not living in fear... and the power of music to connect all of us.
