The 2022/23 season will now include the regional premiere of ‘The Secret of My Success’. The musical is based on the 1987 Michael J. Fox film. TUTS Artistic Director Dan Knechtges will direct and choreograph. The show will be broadcast locally.

The new musical replaces “The Griswolds’ Broadway Vacation,” a show inspired by Chevy Chase films. He won’t travel to Houston “due to rising material costs among other things,” according to Knechtges.
