By Jamie Kuser
September has become one of my favorite month’s of publishing our local magazine. It’s when we take a look at the theatre scene and put all the shows in one place.
Twenty of our theatre partners in Southwest Florida have announced their schedules for 2021-22 (while a couple more are keeping a lid on it for now).
More than 130 different titles are going to be performed on those 20 stages over the next nine months. And after the major setback these venues have seen from the pandemic, the rising curtains will be a welcome sight for all. So, let’s dive in and see what we have.
Artis–Naples Broadway series includes Come From Away, Tootsie, Ain’t Too Proud, Dear Evan Hansen and My Fair Lady.
