Broadway in Boston has introduced its spectacular lineup of shows for the 2019-2020 season.

On March 11, the annual announcement event was held at the Boston Opera House. The venue was filled with the thunderous applause of subscribers and members of the press as each new show was revealed.

Tivon Marcus, the Vice President of Broadway in Boston, said: “This year we will see productions straight from Broadway, Best Musical Tony Award winners, blockbusters and other titles that hit close to home. We can’t wait for New England audiences to experience another Broadway Season as we celebrate our 35th anniversary.”

Get those calendars ready for a full list of the national tours hitting Boston:


Come From Away

November 5 – November 17, 2019

After the tragic events of 9/11, 7,000 airplane passengers were diverted to the tiny town of Gander, Newfoundland. Come From Away is the story of the reluctant formation of friendships and trust that followed.



January 7 – January 19, 2020

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s breathtaking score is made even better with re-imagined set design and fascinating choreography. Cats was the fourth-longest-running Broadway show of all time.


Mean Girls

January 28 – February 9, 2020

A video message from Tina Fey and a performance of the hit song “Stupid With Love” by a current Broadway cast member accompanied the announcement of this fetch musical.


Fiddler on the Roof

February 25 – March 8, 2020

Can Tevye’s strict Jewish traditions pass the test of changing times? Fiddler on the Roof certainly can! The musical has seen five Broadway revivals since the original 1965 production that won 10 Tony Awards.


The Band’s Visit

March 24 – April 5, 2020

The Band’s Visit was the surprise hit of the 2018 Tony Awards. When an Egyptian police band gets stranded in a tiny Israeli town, the power of music brings romance and commonality between the cultures.



July 7 – July 19, 2020

Come and journey to the past with this beautiful new musical set in Tsarist Russia. Anastasia is a fresh take on the classic animated film of the same name.


Summer: The Donna Summer Musical

August 4 – August 16, 2020

Get ready to celebrate the life and music of Donna Summer, Boston’s hometown girl. One of the show’s stars came to perform at the announcement, bringing the house down with “Hot Stuff” and “Last Dance.”


If you are interested in seeing all of these shows at a highly discounted rate, consider becoming a subscriber. One chooses a certain seat, day of the week, and time, then is assigned tickets accordingly.

Current subscriber Kristen Reidt said: “I think this is a really incredible opportunity, especially for teens who aren’t able to travel all the way to New York City to see a show. Teens can be exposed to the arts more and have a great time with friends or family.”

There are a great variety of pricing options, ranging from $274 to $994.

“It’s a fantastic deal to see seven shows for $274! The seats for this price are in the upper balcony, which, speaking from experience, still have a great view of the stage,” said Reidt.

If you don’t want to see all seven shows, individual tickets will be going on sale soon. Also available for individual ticket purchase are: The Lion King (October 3 – 27), The Spongebob Musical (October 15 – 27), Rent (October 29 – November 10), Jersey Boys (March 18 – 22), and Chicago (May 5 – 10).
