ARTS: RBTL announces 2014-15 season 

Shows include "Kinky Boots," "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," and a return of "Book of Mormon"

The Rochester Broadway Theatre League unveiled its 2014-15 season Wednesday night. The new season definitely highlights the "Broadway" part of the RBTL's title, as all six shows are major musical-theater hits of Broadway's past and present.

The six-show season subscription includes:

-"Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" (November 11-16), Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's biblical musical. The tour will feature the stars of the recent Broadway revival, "American Idol" veterans Diana DeGarmo and Ace Young.

-"Cinderella" (December 9-14), a lush new production of the Rodgers & Hammerstein fairy-tale classic.

-"Pippin" (January 13-18, 2015), the 2013 Tony winner for Best Musical Revival that recasts the story of a lost prince in a circus atmosphere, with eye-catching acrobatics inspired by Cirque du Soleil.

-"Annie" (March 10-15, 2015), the perennial family favorite that will feature the classic version of the show, as opposed to the modernized movie hitting theaters later this year.

-"Anything Goes" (April 14-19, 2015), the first-ever Auditorium Theatre production of the Cole Porter musical about sailors and shippers.

-"Kinky Boots" (May 12-17, 2015), the recent Tony-winning Broadway smash will come to Rochester on its first American tour.

Special shows announced tonight include:

-"The Book of Mormon" (October 7-19), a two-week engagement of the hilarious Tony-winning musical by the creators of "South Park" which sold out all of its Rochester performances when it came a few seasons back.

-"Million Dollar Quartet" (Dates TBD), the musical imagining a musical collaboration between Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash.

-Mannheim Steamroller (TBD) the orchestral-electronic holiday musical spectacle.

Six-show season-ticket packages are now on sale and start at $210. Individual ticket sales are not yet available. All shows will take place at the Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.) For more information on visit rbtl.org or call 585-222-5000.
