The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, with co-presenters Florida Theatrical Association and Broadway Across America, has announced that the 2020-21 season of Broadway in Orlando touring shows will now not begin until April 2021.
The Broadway in Orlando 20/21 Season was originally scheduled to start in September, but the pandemic saw it pushed to January 2021. Now theater goers will have to wait until April.
The further delay is largely due to Actors’ Equity Association, which has been prudent in approving the return of Broadway and touring productions, in the interest of the safety of cast members.
The extremely late start to the season will also impact the 21/22 season since 20/21 won’t wrap until Dec. 2021, but that will be sorted out at a later date.
The Broadway in Orlando 20/21 Season has many highly anticipated shows like Hadestown and The Prom, along with the return of the hugely popular Hamilton.
As of now, the new 20-21 Broadway in Orlando season schedule is as follows:
Cats: April 20-25
Hamilton: May 4-30
Jesus Christ Superstar: June 15-20
The Band’s Visit: Aug. 24-29
Hadestown: Sept. 21-26
Tootsie: Nov. 2-7
The Prom: Dec. 7-12
The last theater show was “Mean Girls” in March, and the Dr. Phillips Center has been closed to all public performances for months, though its educational programs have continued.
