The return to Broadway in Pittsburgh is led by The Band’s Visit; the last Broadway event to play the Benedum Center in March 2020
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust announced today that The Band’s Visit will mark the return of the best of touring Broadway to Pittsburgh in October 2021. One of the most Tony Award®-winning productions in history, this beautiful production was forced to close halfway through its run as part of the PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh series in 2020 due to the pandemic.
“There is a poetry to starting where we left off, particularly given how this production rejoices in the way music makes us laugh, makes us cry, and ultimately, brings us together,” says Marc Fleming, Vice President of Marketing, Communications, and Broadway Programming for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. “More than half of the audience members who purchased tickets were unable to attend the show in 2020 due to the shutdown and we couldn’t be more excited to bring the show back to complete its run and raise the curtain again for Broadway in the Cultural District.”
Two adjustments have been made to the PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh schedule. Pretty Woman remains on the 2021-2022 season but will now play in February 2022.. Hadestown will now play November 2022 as part of the upcoming 2022-2023 season.
“We are also pleased to announce Beautiful – The Carole King Musical will be added as a season special in March 2022,” Mr. Fleming continues.
The new 2021-2022 PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh season is now:
- The Band’s Visit | October 28-31, 2021 (six performances)
- Summer: The Donna Summer Musical | November 16-21, 2021 (eight performances)
