The Midwest Premiere Direct From Broadway

Immediately following its acclaimed Broadway run at Lincoln Center and featuring one of the largest casts ever on the Quadracci Powerhouse stage, this riveting story is set in the financial world of the 1980s. Inspired by the real junk bond kings of the day, it’s a battleground of titanic egos, where magnates are pitted against workers, lawyers against journalists, and everyone against themselves. Learn More »

From the creators of The Rep’s hit production Back Home Again: On The Road With John Denver comes this exploration of the music and culture of America’s first superhighway, the Mississippi River. Performed by three world-class musicians, including David Lutken (Woody Sez, John Denver), it’s a journey through America’s Heartland you won't want to miss! Learn More »
