There’s always been something special about the American-born art form of the Broadway musical.
It takes place at a moment where your emotions swell to the point that words just won’t do. It’s the coordination of dozens of performers with moving set pieces, sparkling costumes, and the timing of a live orchestra. A Broadway story is just grander than daily life… or as an expression I’ve often heard, “Drama is not about doing the dishes!”
So why not see it in the grandest place in Macon?
As spring comes upon us, Broadway will visit Macon once again. This year, each musical brings the audience back in time to mid-20th century, wrestling with what it means to be an American in times of upheaval. Yet each story has its own distinct personality, from the breathless romance of An American in Paris, to the high-octane big band brass and dance of Bandstand, to the soulful empowerment of The Color Purple.
And there’s one way to get a front row seat and experience every moment. Becoming a subscriber is about more than just savings – it’s about never missing a beat from the first overture to the final bow. You also become part of the engine that powers The Grand to continue telling these stories.
It’s a community that doesn’t stop when the lights come up. Subscribers get special perks and events, like subscriber-only receptions, season preview party, and advanced access to tickets before they go on sale to the general public. The Rocky Horror Picture Show, for example, which sold out in 2019, went to subscribers first for 2020 tickets. There’s opportunities to get the best seats for other performances, too, even for some shows that aren’t presented by The Grand.
Subscribers get superior service, from sitting in their preferred seats for every show to being recognized by our staff and volunteers. Some folks have become friends with their seatmates for years at a time.
And yes, subscriptions offer the steepest discount on Broadway in Macon. Subscriptions start at less than $50 per Broadway ticket, a major savings over buying for each individual performance.
With so many reasons to subscribe, why take the chance on missing a daring stage feat, a singer bringing down the house, or a story that stirs the soul?
