MINNEAPOLIS- Hennepin Theatre Trust and Theater Latté Da have launched Broadway Re-Imagined, a new collaborative partnership taking a fresh look at Broadway and other musical theatre productions.
The series kicks off with a co-production of Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida, imaginatively directed by Latté Da's acclaimed artistic director Peter Rothstein, at the historic Pantages Theatre, 710 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis.

It was made into a modern, Tony winning Broadway musical by Walt Disney Theatrical productions with music by Elton John, lyrics by Tim Rice and book by Linda Woolverton, Robert Falls and David Henry Hwang.
