Tickets go on sale today for 2 Dallas Summer Musicals shows
Get your seats for Jay Johnson: The Two and Only and Cirque Eloize: Rain.
Dallas Summer Musicals' 68th season is titled "More New Show Than Stars in the Galaxy" because they will be offering 17 shows -- the most that have ever been offered in the company’s history. With this, they offer a Broadway Contemporary Series that features new hits that have been mesmerizing audiences all over the country. Today, tickets have gone on sale for two shows that are part of the Broadway Contemporary Series: Jay Johnson: The Two and Only and Cirque Eloize: Rain.
Jay Johnson: The Two and Only is the critically-acclaimed show, which won a 2007 Tony® Award for Best Special Theatrical Event, featuring North Texas native and ventriloquist Jay Johnson as he brings to life a dozen or more wildly varied characters, including a boa, a chimpanzee, a vulture and a tennis ball in a script he wrote. Michael A. Jenkins, President and Managing Director of Dallas Summer Musicals, also received a Tony® Award for producing the show on Broadway.
For Cirque Eloize: Rain, unexpected things can come from the sky--messages, signs, promises. On stage, not only rain will fall, surprises will pour down as well. There's a certain kind of feeling, almost a sense of nostalgia, like a strange need to go back to the house you came from, the house where a family once lived, where your roots are. It is this kind of beautiful, sweet sadness that you feel when you look at a sunset, "rain in your eyes.”
Tickets for both events went on sale at 10:00 a.m. and can be purchased online or by calling 214-631-ARTS. Check out the following clips to get a little preview of the show:
