Arsht Center 2011-2012 Season: Idina Menzel and Sedaris's The Santaland Diaries

Just to be clear, the best theater news we could get would be if The Book of Mormon swooped into the Arsht Center in the next couples of months. But no, the new musical from the creators of South Park (and winner of nine Tony awards) is not (yet) coming to South Florida.

While we wait to have black-tie-wearing missionaries on our stage, there are over 20 new productions coming to the Arsht Center this 2011-2012 season. And tickets go on sale in just two weeks. Click on for the full list of productions (with the highlight involving one David Sedaris). There's also a special one-day-only discount on tickets.  And keep an eye for our Arsht Center ticket giveaways.

Tickets to the below symphony, Broadway, dance, and theatrical

performances go on sale September 18. All handling fees will be waved if

tickets are bought that Sunday between noon and 6 p.m.
