Kravis Center unveils 2014-15 schedule

The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts announced its 2014-15 season on Tuesday, July 29, and for South Florida, the lineup of talent and Broadway-spun shows is a throwback all the way to 2013.

"The Book of Mormon," opening Dec. 16, tops the list of touring productions at the West Palm Beach venue, less than a year after cursing Mormon missionaries visited the Broward and Adrienne Arsht centers. Other shows in the Kravis on Broadway series include Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Cinderella" (Nov. 11-16); "Flashdance: The Musical" (Jan. 27-Feb. 1); the Tony-winning revivals of "Anything Goes" (March 10-15) and "Pippin" (April 28-May 3); and "Memphis: The Musical" (April 7-12).

Also unable to resist South Florida's lure is Lewis Black (Dec. 13), last found in April unleashing 50 shades of rage at Coral Springs Center for the Arts. More returnees include jazzy singer-pianist Diana Krall (Dec. 10); "America's Got Talent" judge Howie Mandel (Jan. 2); a Valentine's Day set from love doctor Tony Bennett (Feb. 14), dog whisperer Cesar Millan (April 1); Stradivarius violinist Joshua Bell (March 23); and lifelong D-Lister Kathy Griffin (April 24).

The season will kick off Oct. 11 with the Charlie Daniels Band. The dense lineup will also feature the Beach Boys (still minus Brian Wilson), who'll continue marking 50-plus years of good vibrations on Jan. 8; folksingers Don McLean and Judy Collins (Nov. 9); Food Network personality Alton Brown (Feb. 6); and comediennes Joy Behar and Susie Essman (Feb. 9).

Excluding the Kravis on Broadway series, new season tickets will go on sale Sept. 27. Call 561-832-7469 or go to
