It was announced this week that Hadestown will reopen on Broadway on September 2, almost two weeks ahead of the first provisional Broadway reopening date of September 14. It is the earliest reopening date of any show thus far, and the producers have arranged this date in consultations with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and the Broadway League. Whether other productions will now reconsider their reopening dates remains unclear. But for now, we’re excited at all the daily announcements of shows returning to/opening on the Great White Way! Here’s some of the shows that are top of our list!
Jagged Little Pill
Nominated for 15 Tony Awards (the most of any show of the 2019–2020 season) and winner of the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, Jagged Little Pill will reopen at the Broadhurst Theatre from October 21.
Caroline, or Change
The Broadway revival of Tony Kushner and Jeanine Tesori’s Caroline, or Change will now open at Studio 54 this fall with Sharon D. Clarke in the lead role. Previews begin on October 7, ahead of an opening night on October 27.
Diana: The Musical
Diana: The Musical closed during its previews in March 2020 but they will now resume at the Longacre Theatre from November 2, before opening on November 17. Diana: The Musical has also been filmed and is due for release on Netflix this fall.
The hotly anticipated Broadway production of Six will finally open at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, after its opening night was suspended the night Broadway theatres shut in 2020. Previews begin on September 17, ahead of an opening night on October 3.
