RiverPark Center and Jam Theatricals are excited to announce the Broadway at RiverPark 2019-2020 Season.
Offered this year is a four-show series, which includes Cirque Dreams Holidaze, Finding Neverland, Waitress, and An American in Paris. Subscribers can also choose to add DRUMLine Live Holiday Spectacular to their season package.
“I think this season is exciting because we have some newer shows like Waitress and Finding Neverland but also some musical classics like an American in Paris,” said Faith Holley, RiverPark director of development and marketing. “Drumline Live Holiday Spectacular and Cirque Dreams Holidaze, while not a traditional musicals, are going to be very entertaining and family friendly.”
Holley said RiverPark’s Broadway series partner, Jam Theatricals, works with the performing arts center to schedule their Broadway season.
“This includes considering multiple factors such as what shows are touring in our region, which shows will perform at venues who only do one night engagements, what dates are available on our calendar and the cost of the production,” she said.

Subscribers also receive additional ticket discounts and the chance to purchase tickets to added shows before the general public.

FINDING NEVERLAND – February 18, 2020, at 7 p.m. The winner of Broadway.com’s Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, this breathtaking smash “captures the kid-at-heart.” (TIME Magazine) Directed by visionary Tony®-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award® winning film, FINDING NEVERLAND tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible, and the wonder of childhood lasts forever.
WAITRESS – March 25, 2020, at 7 p.m. Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage.

Brought to life by a groundbreaking, all-female creative team, this Tony Award® -nominated hit features original music and lyrics by 6-time Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles (“Love Song,” “Brave”), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam) and direction by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Finding Neverland).
AN AMERICAN IN PARIS – April 30, 2020, at 7 p.m. In post-war Paris, romance is in the air and youthful optimism reigns.

But Jerry’s life becomes complicated when he meets Lise, a young Parisian shop girl with her own secret – and realizes he is not her only suitor. Winner of four Tony Awards and inspired by the Academy Award-winning film, this exquisite production features your favorite Gershwin songs including “I Got Rhythm,” “Liza,” “’S Wonderful,” “But Not for Me,” and “Stairway to Paradise.”
