What’s coming to Overture this season? Well, we’ve got four big Broadway shows Madison’s never seen before, plus one that hasn’t been here in ages (Chicago). We’ve got all seven Harry Potter books (in 70 minutes), uncensored puppets and a rockin’ ukelele. Plus, a whole new series from National Geographic will have us chasing rare birds and great apes from underwater caves all the way to Mars
