Overture Center announces shows and new series for 2013-14 season

Monday night, Overture Center unveiled its lineup for the 2013-14 season, which begins on Aug. 17. The downtown performing arts center will once again feature series that focus on Broadway musicals, cabaret, world music, dance, and children's shows.

One of the biggest theater events of the season is a production of War Horse, in which life-size horse puppets come alive onstage during an adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's dramatic novel about World War I.

Several new series will also debut in the coming season, including National Geographic Live! At four different events, several of the magazine's contributors discuss rare birds, monkeys, space travel and storm chasing.

Here is the complete set of 2013-14 selections, listed by series.
