Cleveland has officially announced that their 2020/2021 season will not begin until January...“Dear Fans of BWY in CLE,We at Playhouse Square are grateful for the many relationships our community has with our KeyBank Broadway Series and BWY in CLE. Whether you are a donor, a season ticket holder, a group leader or a guest who attends once or twice a year, you are important to us.Today, I have news to share with you that will impact each of you in different ways. Together with the producers, we have decided to postpone the performances of Disney’s Frozen and Hamilton scheduled for late summer and early fall. Additionally, the national tours of To Kill a Mockingbird and The Cher Show have been delayed. These four jewels will return in a future season.Our 2020-21 KeyBank Broadway Series will begin inJanuary: Pretty Woman: The Musical – January 5-24, 2021The Prom – March 9-28, 2021Ain’t Too Proud – April 6-25, 2021Moulin Rouge The Musical – May 5-June 6, 2021Hadestown – July 6-25, 2021And as I announced in late April, My Fair Lady will take the stage in Cleveland June 8-27, 2021 and Jesus Christ Superstar will return August 5-22, 2021, giving us seven outstanding Broadway shows to look forward to next year.As a not-for-profit presenter of live theater, these necessary steps are painful but the most thoughtful decision we could make, given the current circumstances. The disruption will cause significant loss and our rebound will be lengthy. Thus far, we have lost 450 performances.”There was more to the letter, but that was the meat of it.

Big League has been booking a new non eq tour of South Pacific.
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.
The Philly runs in June of Summer and Escape to Margaritaville have surprisingly not yet been cancelled. Nor has Jesus Christ Superstar for July, which was actually rescheduled from April. I wonder if that will be rescheduled again, or just scrapped. Evan Hansen was rescheduled to October from April-May. Will be interesting to see if that one happens.
Hamilton's August 12 - October 4 Denver run has now been postponed. That is going to be a huge financial hit to DCPA.
Aida's performances in Fort Worth (Jun 22-27, '21) were just cancelled for some reason... Maybe because of Frozen closing, they'll want to use their theatre and begin on Broadway sooner?? I haven't seen any other theatre cancel their venue's run (yet), so maybe it's just a random cancellation...
The physical production of Hamilton's "Phillip" tour is currently stuck in Toronto, and with the border closed, is not getting into the US for a while.

This was the message I just got regarding Aida:"The updated production of Elton John & Tim Rice’s Aida will be presented with Stage Entertainment in Germany in the spring of 2022, postponing the North American tour Disney Theatrical had planned for 2021."

Or second national? Or just getting a new cast. TPAC just rescheduled what was supposed to be here in 2 weeks to July 6-11, 2021. Or this is that getting cancelled too? Or more likely we don't know!
Broadway in Chicago announced frozen will be postponed a year.
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).
Broadway at The Hobby Center in Houston just announced cancellation of Hamilton.The Angelica Tour was supposed to be here from June 30 - Aug 9. However, with COVID-19, they announced the Tour Stop will be postponed to a later date before the end of the year. However, just this morning, they announced the Houston stop is cancelled
