The trio of hit musicals top a growing list of productions to announce fall reopenings amid the pandemic.
The cast of Hamilton is telling their story on Broadway again.
The Lin-Manuel Miranda-created hit production announced on Tuesday (May 11) that it will return to Manhattan’s Richard Rodgers Theatre when Broadway reopens Sept. 14. Also on Wednesday, fellow Tony Award-winning musicals The Lion King and Wicked announced they will return to their respective stages, at the Minskoff Theatre and at the Gershwin Theatre, on the same day. Tickets for all three shows are now on sale at ticketmaster.com.
“This rare alliance between three of Broadway’s fan-favorites sends a message that Broadway is united in its commitment to ending a devastating period of hardship for the tens of thousands who make their living directly on Broadway shows and the tens of thousands in dependent industries,” reads the joint press release. Cast members from each production — Alexandra Billings from Wicked, Krystal Joy Brown from Hamilton and L. Steven Taylor from The Lion King — appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday to announce the news.
