May 27 - July 10, 2022 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

The story that defined a generation is reimagined in a groundbreaking musical for a new generation.

Just because you come from nowhere doesn't mean you're nobody. In 1967 Tulsa, Oklahoma, the hardened hearts, aching souls and romantic dreams of Ponyboy Curtis, Johnny Cade and their band of greasers take center stage in a fight for purpose and a quest for survival. Adapted from S.E. Hinton’s seminal book and Francis Ford Coppola’s iconic film, and directed by Tony nominee Liesl Tommy with a book by Pulitzer Prize-finalist Adam Rapp, The Outsiders features a score by acclaimed Austin-based rock duo Jamestown Revival and Justin Levine.

Recommended for ages 14 and up.
