Broadway magic hits Iowa’s state universities this winter, when several national tours swing through campus.

First up is the stage adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic novel “To Kill a Mockingbird,” directed by Tony-winner Bartlett Sher, Jan. 19-21 at Hancher Auditorium in Iowa City.

Next, catch the 50th anniversary tour of “Jesus Christ Superstar” on Jan. 30 at Stephens Auditorium in Ames. The hard-charging rock musical tells the story of Jesus Christ’s final weeks, as seen through the eyes of Judas.

Finally, relive the true story of 7,000 passengers who were stranded in a small Canadian town in the days right after 9/11. The heart-wrenching and -warming musical “Come From Away,” which runs Feb. 9 and 10 at the University of Northern Iowa’s Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center in Cedar Falls.
