SOUTH WINDSOR, CT -- (Marketwire) -- 01/25/13 -- With the New Year now underway, TicketNetwork.com pauses to preview the star-studded theater season ahead. The 2013 Broadway season will lure theater-goers with shows featuring recognizable names, including movie stars Tom Hanks and Scarlett Johansson.
Hanks makes his Broadway debut in Lucky Guy, a Nora Ephron play about controversial New York Daily News reporter Mike McAlary, while Johansson stars in Tennessee Williams' classic Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
"Celebrities can bring theater to those who might otherwise shy away from it," said Crystal Maldonado, theater specialist at TicketNetwork.com. "Going to see a Broadway show can be intimidating, but when it includes your favorite actor, it adds a sense of credibility and excitement. People get curious."
TicketNetwork.com customers can also get a dose of star-power with The Other Place, starring Laurie Metcalf, and Picnic, with Maggie Grace and Sebastian Stan. Both productions jump-started the 2013 Broadway season with rave reviews.
Spring previews will bring a new round of celebrities to the Great White Way. "Game of Thrones®" fans can see Emilia Clarke play the iconic Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's, starting March 4. Theater buffs can check out Nathan Lane in The Nance, beginning March 21.
