“We’ll celebrate this rich history with a stimulating roster of award-winning plays and musicals for the 2016-17 season,” said Michael Ritchie, Center Theatre Group’s artistic director.

“I’m very happy that we will be bringing the 2015 Tony Award-winning best musical, ‘Fun Home,’ to Los Angeles,” said Ritchie. Other award-winning productions will include the returns of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s “Into the Woods” and Marshall Brickman’s “Jersey Boys.”
