It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for… Broadway is finally making its way back onto the stage! After a long wait, shows will finally be opening back up starting in September. Let's take a look at some of the productions we will be seeing back in swing next month!
Being one of the first shows to reopen, the cast and crew of Hadestown are ready to get back into the saddle! This show will be opening starting September the second. Before their Broadway return, Hadestown has toured in South Korea, these performances being first non-English productions of the show. The North American tour will begin on October fifteenth in D.C.. What an excellent show to kick off the reopening!
Waitress is also reopening on September second! Sara Bareilles is set to star in her musical as the central role come opening day. Waitress’s first show back will take place at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, a new stage for this company seeing that the original production was performed at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre (which is now the home to the musical Six!).
Dear Evan Hansen
Lastly, Dear Evan Hansen will be reopening on December eleventh. Casting has yet to be announced, but everyone is eager for the list. The London production of the show will be opening back up on October twenty-sixth. The North American tour for Evan Hansen is set to get on the move December seventh.
Excited for the things to come,
