Overture Center announces Broadway will return to Madison with a rescheduled 2021/22 Broadway season
In a special live virtual announcement this evening with Broadway at Overture season subscribers, Overture Center revealed its 2021/22 Broadway at Overture lineup of shows. Most 2020/21 shows were rescheduled to the 2021/22 season, and HAIRSPRAY was added. Along with these changes, we are thrilled to announce HAMILTON will return to Madison as the final show of the 2021/22 season. Unfortunately, Disney’s THE LION KING and OKLAHOMA! were not able to be rescheduled, and we hope to present them in a future season.
The 2021/22 Broadway at Overture season includes the following shows:
· FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, Nov. 16-21, 2021
· MEAN GIRLS, Jan. 11-16, 2022 – Madison premiere!
· HAIRSPRAY, Feb. 22-27, 2022
· THE PROM, March 22-27, 2022 – Madison premiere!
· DEAR EVAN HANSEN, May 10-15, 2022 – Madison premiere!
· AIN’T TOO PROUD – THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS, June 14-19, 2022 – Madison premiere!
· HAMILTON, Aug. 9-21, 2022
In addition to the 2021/22 Broadway at Overture season, COME FROM AWAY, rescheduled from the 2019/20 season, will be presented from Sept. 28 – Oct. 3, 2021.
“We have an incredible lineup and much to look forward to when we’re able to bring tours back to Overture later this year,” said Tim Sauers, VP of programming and community engagement.
