||Starlight Theatre’s 2013 Broadway Season will include flying cows, ‘80s dance craze, the ultimate con man, a little mermaid, rebellious teens, forbidden love and show-stopping musical numbers. Mark your calendar if you haven’t already: Monty Python’s Spamalot (May 31-June 6); Catch Me If You Can (June 11-16); Flashdance –The Musical (July 9-14); Disney’s Little Mermaid (July 23-28); Footloose (August 5-11); and Miss Saigon (Sept. 7-13).
"Our 63rd season offers classics and new musicals; great drama and hilarious comedy. I’m personally very excited about the titles and types of musicals that will be presented on the Starlight stage next summer, and I think Kansas City and visitors will be too,” said Denton Yockey, Starlight President and Executive Producer. “The 2013 Broadway Season will be an ambitious one with four Starlight premieres, three of which are also Kansas City premieres, and two Starlight favorites."
