Lied Center of Kansas announces 2022-23 season schedule
The Lied Center of Kansas announced its 2022-23 season to the Friends of the Lied on May 1 through a video reveal following remarks from Friends of the Lied Board President Steve Carttar and Lied Center Executive Director Derek Kwan.
While the stacked line-up was met with applause, excitement roared for features such as soul and gospel legend Mavis Staples on November 18, Hairspray on February 2, and “the world premiere of a musical theatre work commissioned by the Lied Center, NORTH: The Musical, which follows a family’s journey through the Underground Railroad seeking freedom.”
Add folk acts like Tim O’Brien and John Gorka, Martha Redbone, and the vocal stylings of Chanticleer and Take 6, and it’s a brilliant collection of music and entertainment. You can check out the full list below.
