Providence Performing Arts Center has officially announced its 2022-2023 season, set to kick off in the fall, and it can be summed up in three words:

"Simply The Best."

If there's one word everyone was using to describe the next season of amazing entertainment coming to PPAC this week, it was, "Wow." Translation: A great balance of amazing shows with a mix of something for everyone, from the national tour launch of Tina Turner musical "Tina" to classic "Les Miserables" to "Mean Girls," which will feature Rhode Island native Grace Romanello.

We were lucky enough to be at the official announcement of the next season and l got goosebumps.

Not only is the show lineup for next season amazing, but we found out a few other great tidbits that were pretty unique to PPAC. Over the last couple of years, it claims to have been the only theater of its kind in the country that had no cancelations due to show cast or crew contracting COVID-19. It also claims to have been unscathed by "The Great Resignation," retaining its staff. All of the pre-pandemic crew have returned.

So, what is the lineup, you ask? Get your calendars out and start making plans:
