If you know the playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis from his dramas Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train and The Last Days of Judas Iscariot – both of which have been produced by Orlando’s Empty Spaces Theatre Co(llaboration) – you will most likely be shocked by his latest offering (and his Broadway debut), The Motherf**ker With the Hat.

Billy Elliot the Musical, the Tony Award-winning best musical of 2009, will be only one of several popular favorites included in the 2011-2012 Broadway Across America series at Orlando’s Carr Performing Arts Centre.
Also coming to Orlando next season: The 2010 Tony winner for best revival of a musical, La Cage aux Folles; the 2008 Tony winner in the same category, South Pacific; the multiple-Tony-winning mega-hits The Lion King and Les Misérables; and last season’s hit The Addams Family.
Billy Elliot will be here for a 12-day run and The Lion King for a month.
