We knew “Hamilton” was coming – now we know when! Broadway in Indianapolis just announced its 2019-20 season, and the popular musical about the life of one of the U.S. founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton, will hit Old National Centre Dec. 10-29. Composer Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop and R&B score, as well as the casting of minority actors in the major roles to highlight America's diversity, keep this show breaking records even since its Broadway debut in 2015.
Here’s the rest of the season:
“Fiddler on the Roof,” Oct. 1-6 at Old National Centre. Tevye the dairyman sees three of his daughters break with Jewish tradition in a new Broadway production with new dance from choreographer Hofesh Shechter that mingles with Jerome Robbins' initial staging.
“Come From Away,” Jan. 21-26 at Clowes Memorial Hall. A small town in Newfoundland takes in 7,000 passengers who have nowhere else to go when their planes are grounded after the 9/11 attacks. It looks at different cultures coming to terms with each other and the relationships that develop along the way.
"The Play That Goes Wrong," Feb. 25-March 1 at Clowes Memorial Hall. Yes, a play, not a musical, about the comedic mishaps of putting on a murder mystery play.
"Cats," March 31-April 5, Clowes Memorial Hall. The long-running Broadway show about a group of felines, with Andrew Lloyd Webber's score and new lighting, sound and choreography added.
“Anastasia,” May 26-31 at Old National Centre. With music and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, and a book by Terrence McNally, the musical adapts the legend of Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia, who could have escaped the execution of her family.
Season tickets go on sale Jan. 24. The six-show package runs $236 to $744, depending on where you choose to sit. Single tickets and group reservations won't be available until about four to six weeks before individual shows. The latter aren't available for “Hamilton.”
