Van Wezel's 2020/2021 Broadway, Classical and Dance Season Postponed

The Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall has provided an update to patrons on the status of the 2020-2021 subscription season shows. The upcoming season's Broadway, Classical and Dance shows are moving to a future season, with many Subscriber Specials moving as well. The Hall is arranging new dates for the subscription shows listed below. These dates are subject to change while new tour routes are sorted and shows are rebooked across the nation. Patrons will be contacted directly with final confirmation when dates are finalized. Many Variety shows still remain as scheduled, and the Van Wezel will continue to announce additional virtual and in-person programming as it becomes available. A full listing of shows on sale now is available at

"Every component of a large-scale touring act - the set, the cast, the crew - has to move from city to city, from state to state. Venues across the country are facing different regulations as the circumstances continue to evolve. This new landscape is a difficult one to navigate, and we are doing our absolute best to finalize our upcoming seasons for you," says Mary Bensel, Executive Director. "We have some amazing performers lined up for the 2021-2022 season in addition to the shows listed below, and I know that the Van Wezel will return stronger than ever to help us all heal. We truly apologize for the delay in providing definitive answers about scheduling, and we thank you for your patience as we get through these challenging times together."
