Broadway in Detroit plans to return, start new season in November | Arts & Entertainment
The bright lights of Broadway in Detroit will be this fall.
After closing in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the theater outfit recently sold by the Nederlander Company to the UK Ambassador Theater Group (ATG) has announced a subscription series of six shows starting in early November, with additional productions.
The shows are open to the full, subject to state and local restrictions. Scott Myers, director of marketing for Broadway in Detroit, says the company will “have a full health and safety plan before we reopen,” which will be announced shortly and updated “as circumstances change.”
The season kicks off with “Pretty Woman: The Musical” November 2-14 at the Fisher Theater. Other shows at the Fisher are “Hadestown” from November 23rd to December 23rd. 5; “What the Constitution Means for Me”, 14.-19. December and 27.-Jan. 2; “Hairspray”, 18.-30. January; and “An Officer and a Gentleman”, 1.-13. February. Ain’t Too Proud, which was set to open the 2020-21 season last summer, is now running at the Detroit Opera House from August 9-28, 2022.
Dates for “Disney’s Frozen” and “Disney’s The Lion King” will be announced shortly. Meanwhile, Detroit Broadway has also postponed “Beautiful – The Carole King Musical” for January 4-9 and “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical” for March 8-20, both at Fisher.
