If/Then Broadway Musical

Broadway fans take note. SHN has announced its 2015-16 line-up of musicals headed to San Francisco. And it’s about as solid as anyone could want.

The season opens with If/Then, a contemporary look at the paths that we face in every day life. Look for the musical, from the creators of the Tony-winning Next to Normal, to begin its run on November 10.

Next up, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder. They say, “getting away with murder can be so much fun.” Let us guess, we’ll be sure to be dying of laughter!

SHN’s season continues with Dirty Dancing, and Cabaret (which is coming direct from Broadway), before wrapping with Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.

“The homecoming of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical gives us all an opportunity to see how the production has developed since it first had its world premiere with SHN in 2013,” said Greg Holland, SHN CEO.

A sixth show will soon be announced.

All the details below.

Let the show begin…

GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE tells the story of Monty, an heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by—you guessed it—eliminating the eight relatives who stand in his way.
