2021 Update - Broadway Reopening

While shows could start before then, the previously-announced September 1st date is the current target. While some shows will not return, and new ones will be announced, Broadway fans can count on the return of established shows like Wicked, The Lion King, Harry Potter, Six The Musical, The Book of Mormon, Hamilton, Chicago, Moulin Rouge, Phantom of the Opera, Jagged Little Pill, Come From Away, and Dear Evan Hansen.
