Winner of 6 Tony Awards

Kennedy Center Opera House

Until July 10, 2016

Kinky Boots is one of Broadway's most successful new musicals, snapping up six 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical! The uplifting show tells the tale of a failing family-run shoe factory in England whose business trajectory is changed (and saved!) thanks to the influence of a stiletto-wearing drag queen named Lola.

The Bridges of Madison County

Eisenhower Theater

Until July 17, 2016

Duty and desire collide in this unashamedly romantic musical, based on the treasured novel by Robert James Waller. The story follows the romance between Francesca, an Italian-American housewife unsure of herself, stuck on a remote farm in Iowa, and photographer Robert, who becomes lost whilst shooting the county's bridges and stumbles into her home. And so begins a tantalizing tale of love, loss and acceptance that will melt your heart.

Kennedy Center Opera House

July 13 - August 20, 2016

Andrew Lloyd Webber's romantic musical is based on Gaston Leroux's gothic novel of life beneath the stage. A secretive opera composer stalks the halls of the Paris Opera House and becomes obsessed with young ingenue Christine, and will stop at nothing to have her. This longstanding Eighties rock opera has received a full-scale update for new audiences without compromising on the glory of the original production.

Let the celebrations commence! It's hard to believe that these guys have been helping the world to rock and roll for five decades since releasing "Fun Fun Fun" but there you have it. This tour will also mark the official introduction of singer/guitarist Jeffrey Foskett, who has worked regularly with the group since 1981, as a permanent member of the Beach Boys touring band, well overdue in our opinion. He replaces Christian Love, who left the group to embark on a solo career.

The Merchant of Venice

Eisenhower Theater

July 27 - 30, 2016

In the cash-rich, consumer-driven society of Venice, everything has a price. So when the wealthy heiress Portia is forced to play off her many suitors against each other, the competing men must be able to finance their part of the bet. One man, Antonio approaches the much-maligned Jewish moneylender Shylock; years of anti-Semitism has made him bitter and hardened. Shylock begrudgingly agrees to loan him the money - but should he lose the wager, he will take a pound of flesh - literally. Jonathan Pryce leads the cast of this illustrious production, direct from London's Shakespeare's Globe Theatre!

Built in 1971 to realize the late President Kennedy's ambitions to bring culture to the American public, the Center has seen over 300 productions across ballet, theater and concerts created and stage at the complex. December 2014 saw the start of an ambitious expansion project that would reopen access from the Center to the Potomac River, as well as easier access to lower Georgetown and provide more space for visitors and performers to engage with.
