Theatre Under the Stars’ (TUTS) upcoming 2014-2015 season has something for everyone in their 47th year of offering world class musical theatre in Houston for their mainstage productions at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.
John Breckenridge, TUTS president and CEO, said this upcoming season’s lineup is highly anticipated. “TUTS will present a selection of Broadway’s golden classics, family favorites, and shows hot off New York stages. Fun and full-flavored, comedic and adventurous, this mix of shows embodies everything that makes musical theatre great,” he said.
2014/15 Season Lineup:
Victor/Victoria on September 16 - 28, 2014
Victor/Victoria is a warm, funny look at the nature of love, gender perceptions and the battle of the sexes. It tells the story of an out-of-work singer whose life changes when she meets the flamboyant Toddy and with his help, she becomes "Victor," an overnight singing sensation in the nightclubs of Paris. From the electrifying excitement of "Le Jazz Hot" to the contemplative "Crazy World," from the humor of "Chicago, Illinois" to the touching "Almost a Love Song," this truly classic musical has it all!
Radio City Christmas Spectacular on December 5 – 28, 2014
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular starring the Rockettes triumphantly returns to Houston’s Hobby Center after eight years with an all new show! It’s more spectacular than ever before, featuring brand-new scenes, new sets and costumes, breathtaking special effects and an unforgettable new finale! The Rockettes perform five new numbers, and in one of the brand-new scenes, New York at Christmas, the Rockettes will board a life size double-decker tour bus, taking audiences on a guided tour through the streets of New York City! A 50-foot LED screen enhances this scene and the entire show with breathtaking new imagery. Cherished favorites like the “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” and the “Living Nativity” are enriched, inviting you and your family to experience these iconic scenes in a whole new way.

Broadway's new high-heeled hit is the winner of six Tony Awards® including Best Musical, and Grammy® winner Cyndi Lauper has made history with Kinky Boots as the first solo woman ever to receive the Tony Award® for Best Score!

One of the most enduring shows of all time, Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the irresistible family musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, Israel’s favorite son.

Tony Award®-Winning Best Musical: The Music Man on May 5 – 17, 2015
Described "as American as apple pie" by the New York Times, this great American classic tells the story of fast-talking, musical instruments salesman, Harold Hill, who cons the good folks of River City, Iowa, into believing that he can teach their children to play in a marching band despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. Meredith Wilson’s six-time, Tony Award®-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.
