DPAC plans to bring Broadway series back in October


GREENSBORO — Touring Broadway shows — put on hold by the COVID-19 pandemic — are expected to return in October to the Durham Performing Arts Center.

DPAC announced Tuesday the new dates for each of 11 rescheduled and new hit Broadway shows set to take the stage in 2021-22, as part of the Truist Broadway at DPAC series.

Those dates include the premieres of Tony Award-winning musicals "Hadestown" and "The Band's Visit." The latter will open the season from Oct. 5 to 10, followed by "Tootsie" from Oct. 19 to 24.

Others include:

• "Escape to Margaritaville, Nov. 9-14, 2021.

• "Ain't Too Proud to Beg: The Life and Times of The Temptations," Dec. 7-12, 2021.

• "1776: The Musical," Dec. 28, 2021-Jan. 2, 2022.

• "Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird," Aug. 2-7, 2022.

All dates are subject to change. 

Those with season tickets to DPAC also can add the blockbuster "Hamilton" to their season package before the start of public sales.

"Hamilton" will be on stage at DPAC from May 17 to June 5, 2022. The pandemic had pushed back that production by more than a year.

In Greensboro, the new downtown Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts also will host a touring Broadway series.

The venue had sold 16,000 season tickets for its highly-anticipated inaugural Broadway season. Then the pandemic put those on hold.

So far, the only show dates to be revealed are "Come From Away," from Dec. 28, 2021 to Jan. 2, 2022.

When the 3,023-seat, $93 million Tanger Center does open, its inaugural Broadway series also will include "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical," "Wicked," "Disney’s The Lion King," "Dear Evan Hansen" and "Mean Girls."

The rescheduled dates for those are expected to be announced soon, said Andrew Brown, public relations manager for the Greensboro Coliseum complex, which will  operate the Tanger Center.

Brown said he can't comment on the possibility that "Hamilton" might play at the Tanger Center in a future season.

"The incredible support from our 16,000-plus subscribers ensures the Tanger Center will continue to bring the biggest touring Broadway shows to the Triad," Brown said.
