Timing is everything in theater — and not just on stage. For the Maltz Jupiter Theatre in north Palm Beach County, the COVID pandemic coincided with a planned $30 million expansion of the facility that used to be home to the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theater decades earlier.

After construction delays and supply chain challenges, the glistening theater, rehearsal and educational facility is ready for the 2022-23 season and perhaps more, as hinted by Artistic Director Andrew Kato in a statement:  

“A portion of our theater renovation included expanding our stage to better serve pre-Broadway productions, so what better way to showcase what our new facilities are capable of than with a set of incredible Broadway hits? We remain grateful to all of our donors, subscribers and patrons who stood by us over the past two years and we are looking forward to a full season in this state-of-the-art production center, which will be a source of community pride in its physical beauty, but also in its ability to serve the entire community with world-class entertainment.”  

The season opens with “Jersey Boys,” Oct. 25-Nov. 13, canceled last season because of construction delays. The jukebox musical showcases the music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.  

The season continues with Stephen Sondheim’s “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” Nov. 29 – Dec. 18, and another show canceled because of construction woes, “Sweet Charity,” Jan. 10-29. This classic musical includes the songs “If My Friends Could See Me Now” and “Big Spender.”  

“Good People,” Feb. 12 – 26, a dramatic comedy that captures working-class American struggles and hopes, follows and the season wraps up with “Oliver!” March 14 – April 2, Lionel Bart’s musical based on Charles Dickens’ “Oliver Twist.”

In addition to the regular season productions, Maltz will present its traditional lineup of limited engagement concerts, including Odyssey Road: Tribute to Journey, Nov. 16; Best of The Eagles Tribute, Nov. 20; ABBAmania, Dec. 31; Earth, Wind, and Fire Tribute Band, Feb. 3; Lucie Arnaz, March 4; and the Celtic Tenors, March 3.
