Broadway in Chicago

Gotta Dance at the Bank of America Theatre
One remarkable dance team. One big chance. One small twist. You gotta be over 60.
From the director of Kinky Boots and On Your Feet! comes the incredible true story of ten determined dreamers who audition to dance at half time for a major professional basketball team. They have three things in common: they love to dance, they have something to prove, and they are all over 60. It isn’t until they make the cut that they find out they won’t be dancing tap, salsa or swing—they are going to bring down the house with a style that’s entirely new to them: hip hop. Don’t miss this original Broadway-bound musical about a group of ordinary seniors with extraordinary dreams as they battle prejudice, self-doubt and each other for a chance to bust a move at center court in front of 20 thousand screaming fans.

$59 Tickets* when you use code MAGMILE when ordering.
*Valid on all performances through December 24. Offer ends December 24 at 2:00 PM. Ticketing fees apply. Not valid with any other offer or on previously purchased tickets. Subject to availability. Valid on select seating locations. Other restrictions may apply.
