Blumenthal announces ‘The Wiz,’ ‘The Lion King’ and more in upcoming season


Blumenthal Performing Arts announced its new 2023-2024 season lineup. The lineup consists of Tony-Award-winning and Broadway-hit musicals such as “The Wiz,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” and Disney’s “The Lion King.” 

Blumenthal is also one of three locations in North America that will show “Back to the Future: The Musical” and will be the only place in the region to show major exclusives, including “Company,” “Clue,” and “Message in a Bottle.”

“In Charlotte, audiences are coming back in droves, and there is high demand for top quality entertainment,” Blumenthal President and CEO Tom Gabbard said in a statement. “Fans from across the Carolinas and Tennessee will have the opportunity to travel to Charlotte for the chance to see these exclusive Broadway shows, further establishing Charlotte as a cultural destination in the region.” 

PNC Broadway Lights Series, Blumenthal’s season premier ticket, will feature a seven- or eight-show package ranging from $220 to $951. Both seasons will premiere “Funny Girl” beginning Oct. 17, 2023. The eight-show package includes “Message in a Bottle.”

“All of us at PNC believe engagement in the arts builds stronger communities, and we recognize the important role of the arts in driving the economic growth and cultural vitality within our region,” PNC Regional President for the western Carolinas Weston Andress said. 

The Equitable Bravo Series will feature a six-show package, ranging from $185 to $691. “Beetlejuice” will be the series’ premier show. It opens on Dec. 26, 2023.
