• ‘Les Miserables,' ‘Frozen' Broadway tours coming to Tulsa


    TULSA, Okla. - Celebrity Attractions officials in Tulsa announced six Broadway tours coming to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center for the company’s 2019-2020 season.

    The season includes “Les Miserables,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Miss Saigon,” “Anastasia,” “Frozen,” and “Come From Away.”

    First opening in 1980, “Les Miserable” is a smash hit around the world based on an 1862 novel set during the French Revolution. It was adapted into a movie in 2012 starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway that was nominated for multiple Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

    “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” premiered in London’s West End in 2013 before making the trip to Broadway. It is based on Roald Dahl’s 1964 novel.

    “Miss Saigon” is another Broadway classic. It made its U.S. premiere in 1991 and was quickly nominated for Best Musical at the Tony Awards. The show is set during Vietnam War and was written by the same team behind “Les Miserables.”

    “Anastasia” is a relatively new musical based on the 1997 animated film. Making its Broadway debut in 2017, the show received two Tony nominations and won the Drama Desk award for Outstanding Production Design.

    “Frozen” will likely be familiar to anyone with kids in their lives or just a love for all things Disney. The musical is Disney’s latest entry in film-to-stage adaptations. It tells the story of two royal sisters and their complex relationship. “Frozen” is another Tony nominee for Best Musical.

    One of the most unique entries in Celebrity Attractions’ 36th season is “Come from Away.” This musical staged several productions before making it to Broadway in 2017. The show is based on the true story of dozens of planes that were forced to land in a small Newfoundland town during the 9/11 attacks. “Come From Away” was nominated for seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. It won the award for Best Direction of a Musical.
