Broadway San Jose has announced its 2013-14 season. Headlining the 6-show season will be a three-week run of Wicked, the Tony Award winning musical that maintains its position as the top selling musical on Broadway, nine years after its premiere.

From the release: the fifth Broadway San Jose season will start in October of 2013 with the Bay Area exclusive engagement of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, followed by a new revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s classic Evita in November.

The first show of 2014 will be a multi-media tribute to chart-topping, Grammy-Award-winning The Bee Gees, with a unique tribute performance titled The Australian Bee Gees Show; followed by a musical tribute to Webber, Broadway’s most beloved composer, beginning in May.

Coming in July is the blockbuster Jersey Boys, the rags-to-rock-to-riches story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.
