Anthony McDonald, Executive Director of the Shubert Theatre, announced the lineup of the 2021-2022 Broadway Series shows for the theatre's 107th Anniversary Season.

Mr. McDonald commented, "All of us at the Shubert miss seeing our patrons, and we are sure they miss gathering with family and friends for the experience of live performances in our wonderful theatre. The arts have a way of inspiring us and lifting our spirits - and we will continue that tradition at the Shubert during the 2021-2022 season. We are committed to making our patron's return to the Shubert an experience that makes them comfortable and they can trust. The extended intermission of this last year is almost over and it's time for you to take your seats - our Broadway Series will return! And come this fall, we will finally open our doors once more and Raise the Curtain on a new season, with new possibilities, at the legendary Shubert Theatre! I am quite excited to share with you the 2021-2022 Broadway Series of shows!"

The Broadway Series will begin in October with the epic Broadway hit musical ANASTASIA (October 22-24, 2021). This adventure-filled musical transports audiences from the twilight of the Russian empire to 1920s Paris in a lavish production that brings the mystery of Russia's Grand Duchess Anastasia to life on stage. Following its successful run in 2018, BEAUTIFUL - THE Carole King MUSICAL returns by popular demand January 21-23, 2022, featuring beloved songs from four of America's greatest songwriters.

The Shubert will present the long-awaited debut of WAITRESS (March 4-6, 2022). This hit musical - inspired by the beloved film - is brought to life by a groundbreaking, all-female creative team featuring original music and lyrics by Grammy-a??winner Sara Bareilles. The series follows with another debut - AN AMERICAN IN PARIS (May 19-21, 2022). Inspired by the Academy Award-winning film, this classic musical transports audiences to post-war Paris, where romance is in the air and youthful optimism reigns. The winner of four Tony Awards, this exquisite production is filled with Gershwin's soaring melodies and matched by gravity-defying dance - "Who Could Ask for Anything More?"

The Broadway Series culminates with lighthearted entertainment the whole family can experience together when the great, big, fantastically fun musical HAIRSPRAY (June 24-26, 2022) comes to the New Haven in its all-new touring production.

Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.

BEAUTIFUL - The Carole King Musical tells the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation.
