The Muny has announced the lineup set for its 101st season in St. Louis.

The Muny will be the first theater in the U.S. to produce the Tony-winning musical Kinky Boots following its six-year run on Broadway, which ends April 7, 2019. Season 101 will also include Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, Guys and Dolls, and Lerner and Loewe's Paint Your Wagon, in a revised edition being developed at The Muny. Other season highlights include Footloose, 1776, and The Muny premiere of the Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical Matilda.

"As the first season of our second century, this lineup is both ambitious and nostalgic," said Muny President and CEO Denny Reagan. "On our brand-new stage, the 2019 season promises the thrills and unforgettable Muny magic that have defined our theater for over a century."

Show order, performance schedule, and audition dates will be announced later this fall.
