The musical is available as a season option for subscribers.

“Broadway is coming back to Dallas in a big way. This is a massive season spanning an entire calendar year, and we can’t wait! Our announcement today is made with great optimism related to in-progress wide-spread COVID-19 vaccinations and the soon-to-come reopening of our in-person cultural economy. As the months progress, we will be closely monitoring the on-going health crisis while developing, adapting, and sharing safety protocols to ensure everyone’s safe return to live theatre,” said Ken Novice, President of Dallas Summer Musicals.
