Madison is home to a vibrant arts scene, and this scene’s centerpiece is the Overture Center for the Arts. The Overture announced its schedule for the 2014-2015 season Monday. There are lots to pick from here, as the venue’s 10th anniversary lineup is perhaps the strongest the Overture has ever had. Ticket and subscription options are available here.
