Orpheum Announces Date Changes at Orpheum Theatre Memphis

The Orpheum Theatre announced further date changes to the 2020-2021 Broadway Season as well as confirmed dates for the rescheduled engagement of Disney's The Lion King.

"Since our initial season announcement in March, the world has continued to change," said Brett Batterson, President & CEO. "We are so thankful for the continued support of our subscribers and supporters as we navigate the uncertain road ahead. It is not a question of if we will have Broadway again; it is simply a matter of when."

This is the second reschedule of the Orpheum's upcoming Broadway season as the return of Broadway and touring shows remains undetermined. At the end of May, the Orpheum announced rescheduled dates to the fall line-up of shows. The season, after that announcement, was to open with Jesus Christ Superstar in December. The season is now slated to begin with Mean Girls in March 2020 with Jesus Christ Superstar and CATS moved to December 2021. The Orpheum has still retained all shows that were announced in March.
