The Fabulous Fox Theatre has announced the postponement of the remaining shows on its 2020-2021 Broadway season ticket package due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic.
This includes Disney’s FROZEN, originally February 10-21, 2021; AIN’T TOO PROUD – THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS, originally March 2-14, 2021; THE PROM, originally April 6-18; and PRETTY WOMAN: The Musical originally April 27- May 9, 2021. In addition, these specials are postponed: BLUE MAN GROUP, originally March 19-21, 2021 and HAIRSPRAY, originally May 21-23, 2021.
The next U.S. Bank Broadway season is expected to begin in the late summer or early fall of 2021 and will include the return of HAMILTON in the spring of 2022. The remainder of the season will be filled with a combination of shows selected from the pool of those postponed earlier this year, the above titles and new titles.
“Our Broadway producers have expressed their desire to get shows back into rehearsals and touring again as soon as possible. Titles and dates are shifting across the country as new routes are booked and that unfortunately includes all of the shows originally on our spring schedule,” said Fox director of programming John O’Brien.
“We will announce a new schedule for what will now be the 2021-2022 U.S. Bank Broadway Season as soon as it is prudent to do so. The good news is that our subscribers are already renewed for that season which will now include the return of HAMILTON in the spring of 2022.”
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.”

MEAN GIRLS | September
22 – October 4, 2020
Direct from Broadway, MEAN
GIRLS is the hilarious hit musical from book writer Tina Fey (“30
Rock”), composer Jeff Richmond (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), lyricist Nell
Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and director Casey Nicholaw (The Book of
Mormon). Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing
prepared her for the vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois.
Soon, this naïve newbie falls prey to a trio of lionized frenemies led by the
charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady devises a plan to end
Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee
without getting stung. New York Magazine cheers, “MEAN GIRLS delivers with
immense energy, a wicked sense of humor and joyful inside-jokery.” USA Today
says, “We’ll let you in on a little secret, because we’re such good friends:
GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!”
MY FAIR LADY | October
From Lincoln Center Theater and director Bartlett Sher comes “a sumptuous new
production of the most perfect musical of all time” (Entertainment Weekly),
Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY. Boasting such classic
songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” and “Wouldn’t It
Be Loverly,” MY FAIR LADY tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a
young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is
determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.” But who is
really being transformed?
THE CHER SHOW | November
The Tony Award®-winning musical! Her life. Her story. Her legend. Superstars come and go. Cher is forever. For six straight decades, only one unstoppable force has flat-out dominated popular culture — breaking down barriers, pushing boundaries, and letting nothing and no one stand in her way. THE CHER SHOW is the Tony Award-winning musical of her story, and it’s packed with so much Cher that it takes three women to play her: the kid starting out, the glam pop star, and the icon. THE CHER SHOW is 35 smash hits, six decades of stardom, two rock-star husbands, a Grammy®, an Oscar®, an Emmy®, and enough Tony Award-winning Bob Mackie gowns to cause a sequin shortage in New York City, all in one unabashedly fabulous new musical that will have you dancing in the aisles!

America. Set to the beat of the group’s treasured hits, including “My Girl,”
