At the Eccles » Musicals and revivals fill out second season at Salt Lake City’s new downtown theater.

If you want to be in the room where it happens — "it" being the Salt Lake City tour of "Hamilton" — then remember these dates: April 11-May 6, 2018.

And these dates, too: Season ticket renewals begin Monday at 9 a.m. Phone renewals begin Wednesday at 9 a.m. Due to overwhelming demand, new subscriptions are not available, but there is a waitlist (see box for details).

The touring lineup for the 2017-18 Broadway at the Eccles season was announced this week, with ticket sales available only to renewing season subscribers. Renewal deadline is March 31.

The Broadway touring series will open in October with "An American in Paris" and end in July with a new revival of "The Phantom of the Opera." Other shows include a December run of "The Bodyguard," a British import built around Whitney Houston songs; a January run of the farcical backstage Shakespearean-era comedy "Something Rotten!," about two brothers' desperate attempts to write the world's first musical; and a February revival of "The Sound of Music."

In the second season at downtown's Eccles Theater, season ticket price ranges for the six shows are $275.50 to $667 (plus fees), increased from the previous year's range of $242.50 to $602 (plus fees). (The five-show package in the last year at the Capitol Theatre ranged from $199.75 to $408.75.)

Add-on shows include a November run of the musical "Elf," two holiday shows in December, Kurt Bestor's annual concert run, as well as "Mannheim Steamroller Christmas," the 20th-anniversary tour of "Riverdance" in April, and a return of "Jersey Boys" in June.
