A Wide Range of Classic Shows Highlight New Broadway Season in Jacksonville

By Anthony Richards

The FSCJ Artist Series has released its 2024-2025 shows for the upcoming Broadway in Jacksonville season, sponsored by VyStar Credit Union.

This is the 58th season of the FSCJ Artist Series and it will certainly be memorable for me, as several big-name and fan-favorite Broadway plays are included in the schedule.

Five shows make up the 2024-2025 season, with all but one taking place in 2025, that one being “Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of The Temptations,” which will kick off the season on December 5 . August 8, 2024, at the Jacksonville Center for the Performing Arts.

However, the remaining shows will all take place in 2025 and the new year will start off with a bang with “Mama Mia!” From January 7 to 12, 2025.

“Mama Mia!” It’s a hit musical and she’s coming to Jacksonville to celebrate her 25-year run, and in that time she’s created all the following and become a fan favorite no matter what city in where she finds herself, performing the hits of the musical group ABBA.

Next, the Jacksonville Center of the Performing Arts will be transformed into Neverland and audiences will take a journey into the world of fairy tales with a screening of the classic tale of “Peter Pan.”

The play has been on Broadway for nearly 70 years and Jacksonville will get a preview of the latest adaptation of playwright Larissa FastHorse’s classic and directed by Emmy Award winner Lonny Price.

After a month’s absence, the Broadway season in Jacksonville will return with two shows this spring with “Les Miserables,” considered the most popular musical in the world and a Tony Award-winning performance, taking place from 1st to 6th april.

It will be followed by the season finale “MJ The Musical” April 22-27, which is another musical but on the other end of the spectrum from “Les Miserables,” showcasing the variety of musical types that the fans of the series will be able to enjoy in season.

“MJ The Musical” features the works and artistry of Michael Jackson and is also a multi-Tony Award-winning musical for fans of the “King of Pop” or those who simply love musicals.
