Denver Center Attractions’ 2014-15 season kicks off Sept. 6 with back-to-back visits from the most recent Tony Award winners for best revival of a musical and best musical: Pippin and Kinky Boots.
It was previously announced that Denver would launch the national touring production of Pippin, continuing the city’s burgeoning reputation as a premiere location to christen new national tours. Pippin plays here from Sept. 6-20. Kinky Boots, featuring a score by pop star Cyndi Lauper, follows Oct. 29-Nov. 9.
The six-show subscription package also will include Motown the Musical, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella and Annie in the Buell Theatre, as well as Forbidden Broadway: Alive & Kicking! in the Garner Galleria Theatre.

When “The Book of Mormon” national touring production debuted in Denver last year, the 51,000 available seats moved in five hours. By the time the longer return engagement opened here on Tuesday, nearly all of the 111,506 seats already were snatched up.
What’s a “Mormon” acolyte to do? Your best chance of having your doorbell answered is to participate in the pre-show lottery, which makes 24 front-row seats available to lucky winners for just $25 each.
