On Monday, May 22nd the team behind the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center announced their 2023/2024 season lineup. Every single year it seems like the shows keep getting better and better (at least in my opinion).

One of the biggest and most popular shows to come to the Gallagher Bluedorn this season was the Tony Award winning musical Book of Mormon. For the upcoming stretch of shows, venue officials look like they are bringing in a whole lot more Broadway shows. The performances don't stop at just musicals by the way!

The Gallagher-Bluedorn is bringing in comedians, country artists, and other amazing shows to Cedar Falls.

Here is a full list of all of the shows that will be going on at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center during the 2023/2024 season...

You might know the comedian best from his work on the hit sitcom 'King of Queens' or you might remember him as the hilarious mall cop Paul Blart. Either way, James is back on the road again for 'The Irregardless Tour' and he will be making several additional Midwest stops this year besides the Cedar Falls date.
