The Fabulous Fox Theatre has announced the postponement of three fall shows that were to open the 2020-2021 U.S. Bank Broadway Season Ticket package and one season special. “In light of the current status of the COVID-19 virus, the Fox and our producing partners have agreed that tour dates for fall of 2020 must be re-scheduled for the safety and well-being of our guests, staff, casts and crew” said John O-Brien, director of programming for the Fabulous Fox. The seven-show season ticket package will now open with Disney’s FROZEN February 10-21.
The postponed musicals are: MEAN GIRLS scheduled for September; MY FAIR LADY scheduled for October; JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR scheduled for November and CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY scheduled for December.
“As a presenter of national tours, we are in ongoing conversations with producers and agents each and every week. The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the touring industry as theatres and booking agents across America reinvent calendars that were two to three years in the making” said O’Brien. “In addition to the four shows mentioned above, we are also finding new dates for CATS and HAMILTON which were postponed in the spring.”
THE CURRENT SEVEN-SHOW SEASON TICKET PACKAGE IS:
FROZEN * February 5-21, 2021
AIN’T TOO PROUD * March 2-14, 2021
THE PROM * April 6-18, 2021
PRETTY WOMAN * April 27-May 9, 2021
Plus 3 additional musicals to be announced later.
THE SCHEDULE OF SPECIALS IS:

RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER * December 18-19, 2020

Additional information about the Season Ticket package and specials will be released when the pandemic eases and shows confirm their re-routing plans.
