Performing Arts Fort Worth Cancellations

Performing Arts Fort Worth (PAFW) recently announced cancellations and changes to their upcoming Broadway at the Bass seasons. As COVID-19 continues to impact Broadway and the Touring Broadway industry, several shows have cancelled.

COME FROM AWAY, MY FAIR LADY, CATS, CHICAGO, WAITRESS, and THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES are cancelled. PAFW is working with the producers of COME FROM AWAY and CATS, hoping to bring these shows to Bass Hall in a future season. Elton John & Tim Rice’s “Aida” and “The Cher Show” were also cancelled.

Rescheduled engagements include HAMILTON, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR and Jimmy Buffett’s ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE. The 2020-2021 Broadway at the Bass season kicks off with the highly anticipated return of Disney’s THE LION KING, Jan. 13-31, 2021.

PAFW President & CEO

“The challenges and uncertainties around this health crisis have had an enormous impact on all of our communities, and the theatrical community has been uniquely challenged,” said Performing Arts Fort Worth President & CEO Dione Kennedy. “While our programming has been revised, we look forward to welcoming patrons back to Bass Hall when it is safe and appropriate. Our box office is working virtually as we all maintain social distancing so we ask for your patience and understanding as communication may be delayed and take longer than normal.”

No action is necessary for current ticket holders who purchased their tickets through the Bass Hall website, or Bass Hall Box Office. Emails have been sent to ticket holders with additional information. Those who purchased tickets through third parties will need to contact their points of purchase.
