The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts has unleashed Broadway to the Bayou City. The season, which runs from 2015-2016, kicks off with the Tony Award-winning revival of Pippin in October and is followed by numerous other Broadway big names like The Phantom of the Opera and Wicked.

"I am thrilled that once again, Houston audiences have the opportunity to experience the best of Broadway in their own backyard," said Fran Macferran, President of the Hobby Center Foundation, in a recent statement. "The series is a continuation of our commitment to bring world-class entertainment to the Hobby Center, and with award winning titles, and perennial audience favorites, this season certainly fits the bill."
