‘Fela!,’ ‘War Horse’ ride to Ahmanson

Center Theater Group announces 2011-12 lineup

“Funny Girl,” “Fela!” and “War Horse” are part of the Ahmanson’s 2011-12 season, announced Tuesday.

Broadway’s “Fela!,” based on the life of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, is set to be presented by Jay-Z, Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith and run April 25-June 3, 2012. An all-new production of the classic musical “Funny Girl,” directed by Bartlett Sher, will run Jan. 15-Feb. 26.

The previously announced “Bring It On: The Musical” kicks off the Ahmanson’s season Oct. 30-Dec. 10 with an opening set for Nov. 11. “American Idiot,” the tuner based on Green Day’s music, runs March 13-April 12.

Based on a novel by Michael Morpurgo, “War Horse” will feature as the closing production at Ahmanson June 13-July 22, 2012. The National Theater production has been running London’s West End since March 2009.

“With fresh, bold choices these directors, playwrights, composers, lyricists, choreographers and designers are refining and redefining theater, and are making the Ahmanson’s new season the strong season that it is,” said Center Theater Group a.d. Michael Ritchie in announcing the lineup.

Ahmanson Theatre’s 45th season tickets will be available in late March by subscription only.
