History

Founded in December 1975, The Marriott Theatre has presented more than 170 musicals and is currently led by Executive Producer Terry James,[1] Artistic Director Aaron Thielen, and Artistic Director Andy Hite.[2] It is the most subscribed musical theatre in the country.[3]

The Marriott Theatre has presented more than 3,000 professional actors in classic American musical theatre, new musicals, and "re-thought" musicals. Broadway has long considered The Marriott Theatre a prime venue for launching shows into the regional market with premiere productions of A Chorus Line, Chess, Baby, Grand Hotel, They're Playing Our Song, The Goodbye Girl, The First, Miss Saigon, Cats, Sunset Boulevard, Beauty and the Beast, Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Producers and Little Women.

A founding member of the National Alliance for Musical Theatre, The Marriott Theatre fosters artists in creating new works for the stage. The result has been a string of acclaimed American and World Premieres including Matador, which subsequently played London's West End; Annie Warbucks, launching a national tour and opening off-Broadway in New York to rave reviews; Phantom of the Country Palace, Grover's Corners, Maury Yeston's History Loves Company (1991), Windy City, The New Yorkers, Queen of the Stardust Ballroom, Peggy Sue Got Married, Once Upon a Time in New Jersey, The All Night Strut, A Fascinatin' Rhythm, Married Alive, and 2008's 'The Bowery Boys'

Marriott's Theatre for Young Audiences has presented more than 50 musicals especially for children, including numerous original works as well as classic fairy tales. Every year, these musicals introduce more than 100,000 children to live theatre. In all, The Marriott Theatre attracts more than 400,000 people to Lincolnshire each year.
