ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – There was anxiety at The Muny Thursday morning — as the clock ticked toward 11 a.m., Denny Reagan and Mike Isaacson prepared to tell the assembled press about their plans for the venerable theater’s 100th anniversary season in 2018.

You could cut the tension with a conductor’s baton.

Mike Isaacson provided a rationale for the selection of each show. The titles announced (exact dates are not set at this time) were:

  • Jerome Robbin’s “Broadway”
  • “The Wiz”
  • “Singin’ in the Rain”
  • “Annie”
  • “Gypsy”
  • “Jersey Boys”
  • “Meet Me in St. Louis”

“We wanted shows that were big, bold, thrilling and had something for everyone. We felt productions about the challenge of a family in changing times were important to include,” Isaacson said.

There will be two special events prior to the start of the season – a black-tie event on May 18, and a kind of open house for the general public May 20. For more information, visit muny.org/100

The over-arching theme for the 100th season is “Right Here in St. Louis.”

Over 56 million people have attended productions at The Muny.
