The Wharton Center has announced yet another stacked season of incredible Broadway shows, dance troupes, jazz and classical music, and a variety of other events coming to Lansing.

The Broadway lineup includes some of the top shows in the world, such as “Dear Evan Hansen,” a musical about a teenager with a broken arm and social anxiety, which won the 2017 Tony for Best Musical. Then there’s Disney’s “Aladdin,” Lerner & Loewe’s “My Fair Lady” and the blockbuster “Come From Away.” Plus, if you didn’t get a chance to see them last time, audience favorites “Les Miserables” and “Wicked” are both returning as well.

Amid the many spectacular Broadway plays are classical events like the Emerson String Quartet, dance performances like Royal Winnipeg Ballet: The Wizard of Oz, jazz from legends like Kenny Barron and Sean Jones, and much more.

You can see the full lineup, which includes multiple Sensory-Friendly Performances, here:
