2020-2021 Touring Season  May 26 2020, 04:04:26 PM

No surprise, Frozen in Boston has been pulled from the 2020/2021 line-up. Anastasia taking its place later in 2021. That makes three non-Equity tours in our subscription (Tootsie, Summer, Anastasia). 

2020-2021 Touring Season  May 12 2020, 05:43:08 PM

Boston's summer Broadway in Boston shows (Anastasia and Summer) have been 'postponed.' Summer is now part of the 2020/2021 season, and the Cher Show is not.

Kiss Me Kate tour?  Jun 1 2019, 05:05:40 PM

Roundabout's "Twelve Angry Men," with Richard Thomas and George Wendt, toured in 2007.

Stockard Channing in Six Degrees of Separation  Apr 2 2019, 09:21:29 AM

I'm glad someone mentioned Marlo Thomas on the tour. I caught "Six Degrees" when it played the Shubert here in Boston. The Ouisa role was well-suited for Thomas. How great was it when plays toured as often as they did. I remember another great LCT touring production of "The Sisters Rosensweig" with Mariette Hartley. Those were the days.

2019-2020 Touring Season  Feb 26 2019, 03:08:19 PM

Thanks for weighing in, trekkygurl! I did find it hard to believe Broadway in Atlanta would require renewing subscribers to purchase a show they had just seen. Making "Hamilton" available to them as an add-on is one thing... that would be a perk of subscribing; glad you joined here to clarify!

2019-2020 Touring Season  Feb 26 2019, 01:37:27 PM

Mike Barrett said: "Easy way for people to purchase to entire package, so more $$$."

Well yes, that is the obvious answer. But most Subscription Series don't require subscribers to have to buy the same show two seasons in a row (or more), unless there is an opt-out or switch-a-show option, which Boston only offered once or twice.

2019-2020 Touring Season  Feb 26 2019, 01:15:28 PM

I am surprised that "Hamilton" is part of Atlanta's subscriber season, and not an add-on, given that it already played there.

2019-2020 Touring Season  Feb 24 2019, 09:36:42 PM

"Come From Away" will play Providence in December 2019 a few weeks after it plays Boston.

Largest theaters that regularly host touring productions  Jan 28 2019, 10:22:20 AM

Mike Barrett said: "Do they rent it for The Illusinits and Kinky Boots this spring as well? Theres no overlap then, wasn't sure if the Emerson Colonial booked those shows, then partnered with broadway in Boston or what."

You're forgetting that Boston Ballet utilizes the Opera House as well. There is an overlap during those times... with Boston Ballet programming: "Full on Forsythe" from Mar. 7-17 and "Cinderella" from May 10 - Ju

Mike Barrett said:  I know they won't do many shows there due to the complaints about the legroom, but its such a great and intimate theatre, I wish the Opera House and Colonial would split the amount of shows a season."

Complaints about legroom isn't why Broadway in Boston doesn't utilize the Colonial; they simply don't operate/manage the facility anymore and have nothing to do with its programming. The only time Broadway in Boston will have shows at

Oddly enough... re. the Broward Center's 2019/2020 lineup, on the 'Bandstand' show description page, the background image is actually of 'The Band's Visit' - which isn't even on the schedule. Ooops!

Broward Center/Bandstand

EDIT - Someone must have clued them in; looks to be in the process of being fixed. The background is blank now.

HADESTOWN to open in March at the Walter Kerr  Dec 8 2018, 10:10:45 AM

To those who have seen the show, is the storyline easy enough to follow?
