Theatre Under The Stars Postpones Fall Musicals Including Broadway-Bound 1776

Theatre Under the Stars has postponed its upcoming season, including Broadway-bound 1776, which was set to open in September.

The season will now begin with Disney's The Little Mermaid on Dec. 6 and end with the two postponed productions.

1776 will cap off the season Sept. 28 through Oct. 10, 2021, immediately following its run in New York City. Directed by Tony Award-winning director Diane Paulus, the Houston engagement will feature the complete Broadway cast.

In addition, the '80s-themed musical comedy Rock of Ages will now run Aug. 10 through 22, 2021.

"With the well-being of our audiences, artists and staff as our primary concern, we're delaying the start of the upcoming season to allow more time for the current health crisis to abate," said TUTS Artistic Director Dan Knechtges.

"Rock of Ages is going to be the perfect party show for some summer fun, and we're thrilled to snag the full Broadway production of 1776 for Houston audiences," said Knechtges. "We're so thankful that we can retain both musicals for the upcoming season."

As previously announced, the season also includes Disney's The Little Mermaid, Dec. 6 through 24; South Pacific, Feb. 9 through 21; Sister Act, April 6 through 18; and the North American tour of Come From Away, May 18 through 30. All productions will be in the Hobby Center's Sarofim Hall.
