Broadway and London hits make up the just-announced 2018-19 four-show theatrical season of the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights.
• "A Chorus Line" (Sept. 20 to Nov. 3) -- Dancers get put through an unconventional Broadway audition in this 1975 Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, which once held the record for being Broadway's longest-running show.
• "The Mousetrap" (Jan. 31 to March 16) -- The world's longest-running play is Agatha Christie's 1952 murder mystery, which is still running in London. The play's snowbound plot contrivance is timed well to the winter weather.
• "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" (May 16 to June 29, 2019) -- Ancient Roman farces are mixed with bawdy burlesque humor in this 1962 Tony Award-winning musical comedy by Stephen Sondheim, Larry Gelbart and Burt Shevelove.
• "Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story" (July 18 to Aug. 24) -- The tragically short life of the influential American rock 'n' roll artist is the focus of Allan Janes' hit 1989 London jukebox musical.
