PBS has unveiled the fall lineup for its Great Performances series, comprised of four titles recently seen on the London stage and an Elizabethan classic with a contemporary twist.

Great Performances’ “Broadway’s Best” lineup begins November 1 with the recent West End production of 42nd Street, directed by co-writer Mark Bramble and choreographed by Randy Skinner.

Four titles will follow each Friday in November: The King and I (starring Kelli O’Hara and Ken Watanabe), Red (with Alfred Molina and Alfred Enoch), the previously reported Shakespeare in the Park staging of Much Ado About Nothing (starring Danielle Brooks and directed by Kenny Leon), and the London staging of the Tony-winning Kinky Boots.

Documentaries are in the spotlight in PBS’ complete fall roster, which includes Ken Burns’ eight-part, 16-hour Country Music documentary, Lynn Novick’s College Behind Bars, and a new film about Tony nominee Raúl Juliá.
