Fab Fox Bringing Broadway’s Current Best To St. Louis
A lot has happened since The Fox reopened in 1982 with a touring company of the hit circus musical, “Barnum.” The entire Grand Center area has become revitalized and acted as a catalyst for the cultural scene all over St. Louis.
From the perspective of The Fox, the charge to keep that momentum going falls on the shoulders of Kristin Caskey, who recently replaced Mike Isaacson as President/Executive Producer of Fox Theatricals.
“Through the titles we have announced, we thought it was really important to thank the people who have supported us all these years and to announce the season in a way that people would understand the commitment we have to bring the absolute best shows to The Fox,” Caskey said.
Leading off the 2012-2013 season October 16 – 28 will be the 25th Anniversary edition of “Les Miserables.” The long running attraction “Blue Man Group” that features music, comedy and multimedia will arrive at The Fox on November 20 and be on stage through December 2nd.
The lively musical comedy made famous by Bette Midler, “Priscilla Queen of the Desert,” will play The Fox January 29 to February 10, 2013.
Perhaps the most anticipated show of the new schedule, “The Book of Mormon,” will be here February 19 to March 3.
The smash international hit “War Horse,” known for its gripping story and amazing feats of large-scale puppetry, will be at The Fox March 13 to March 24.
The Fox will rock out to the music of Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Elvis when the new musical “Million Dollar Quartet” hits the Fox stage April 23 to May 5th.
The ever-popular Cole Porter musical “Anything Goes,” a favorite over the years with audiences of The Muny, will play The Fox May 28 to June 9th.
“At The Fox, we have a theater that allows us various pricing options,” Caskey added. “Our fervent belief is that we have an array of price points so that everyone can afford a ticket. Go to our website, call our theater, because I promise you that if you can afford the price of a movie theater ticket, you can afford to come to The Fox, and we would love to have you.”
