PHOENIX — Add Hamilton and Oklahoma! to the list of Broadway shows that have postponed their national tours to ASU Gammage because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
With these two latest postponements, the start of ASU Gammage's 2020-2021 Broadaway season effectively moves to 2021.
"We have been assessing the COVID-19 situation and have decided in conjunction with the shows and our partners to postpone our engagements of HAMILTON and OKLAHOMA!," Executive Director Colleen Jennings-Roggensack said in an email to subscribers last Friday. A similar message was also posted to the theater's social media accounts.
The theater said both shows would remain part of subscribers 2020-2021 season packages and that they are working to reschedule both shows for 2021.
Hamilton was supposed to visit in October. Oklahoma! was scheduled for December 1-6.
With that, My Fair Lady is now set to kick off the season in February 2021, followed by Tootsie, Disney's Frozen, Jersey Boys, and To Kill A Mockingbird.
Come From Away and The Lion King canceled their engagements due to the pandemic. Hadestown postponed its tour and is expected to be part of ASU Gammage's 2022 season.
Both Mean Girls and The Band's Visit have been rescheduled for 2021.
