From the visionary behind Avenue Q comes a bold new Broadway musical fairytale where Once Upon a Time crashes into our present moment. In the mythical land of Arcadia, the royal family is challenged to set out on a journey to save their beloved kingdom from extinction. Through their adventure gender roles are upended, relationships liberated, and love is discovered in the most surprising of ways. Told to the hypnotic beat of the iconic 80’s all-girl rock band The Go-Go’s, Head Over Heels joyously unveils a path to a new world where diversity is celebrated and ladies lead!
Season 37 celebrates Diversionary’s legacy of chosen family with a focus on community engagement, arts education, and an inspired program of new and classic work examining family dynamics and legacy, utilizing all three of its performance venues: the Robert L. Granat & Alfred J. Mazur Mainstage Theatre, the Reuel K. Olin New Play Development Center, and the Clark Cabaret & Bar.
