From the high heels of Kinky Boots to the dazzling hoops of Pippin, this season is sure to take the theater experience to new heights! Broadway in Chicago’s spring season is now on sale and we have six great reasons why you should become a subscriber and be a part of the magic.

1. You’ll never hear the words “Sold Out!” With the incredible lineup Broadway in Chicago has this spring, tickets are sure to go fast. They’ll quickly disappear like the cast from The Illusionists, which will bring magic to the stage this March. Never get left out of a captivating night at the theater when you become subscriber.

2. These shows will have you On Your Feet. Emilio and Gloria Estefan’s autobiographical musical is guaranteed to make you laugh, cry and dance. Feel like you’re a part of the show as you move around and sing along to catchy tunes like “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You”. And yes, you can hold your subscription responsible for these songs staying in your head days after you see the show!

3. Be a part of the Club. Enjoy a music-filled evening with the ladies from the First Wives Club while enjoying the benefits from a Broadway in Chicago subscription. Subscribers get special perks like discounted parking and seat upgrades. It will be the best club you join all year!

4. Enjoy hassle free exchanges and replacements when you become a subscriber. The only people that will have to jump through hoops at the theater are the wonderfully talented cast of Pippin. Subscribers will enjoy exclusive exchange privileges that include lost tickets being replaced for free! Now those perks dazzle almost as much as Pippin!

5. Six shows for 1 low price! The heels in Kinky Boots are high enough as it is. Don’t be forced to choose between these six amazing shows. Choose your package and pricing for your preferred day and seating section and enjoy all six! The Tony Award winning score from Kinky Boots alone is well worth it.

6. And the final reason to purchase a Broadway in Chicago subscription is to witness a “Beautiful” performance. Enjoy six wonderful evenings of laughter, magic and music at its finest. Beautiful: the Carole King Musical, is just one of the many shows that will provide unforgettable performances that will make purchasing a subscription totally worth it!
