Performing Arts Fort Worth is thrilled to announce its 2020-2021 Broadway at the Bass Season at Bass Performance Hall! The seven-show series features exciting new titles direct from Broadway, freshly revamped revivals and multiple Tony Award-winners. Current 2019-2020 Broadway at the Bass season ticket holders have until March 6 to renew and keep their seats. New season tickets go on sale April 15. Patrons can sign up for the new season ticket waitlist now by visiting www.basshall.com/waitlist.

The season is anchored by two of Broadway’s biggest blockbusters: Disney’s THE LION KING and DEAR EVAN HANSEN. Winner of six Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, THE LION KING has been seen by more than 100 million people around the world and now Fort Worth’s best-loved musical returns to Bass Hall in January, 2021. Called “one of the most remarkable shows in musical theater history” by The Washington Post, pop culture phenomenon DEAR EVAN HANSEN - winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical – makes its Bass Hall debut in February, 2021.

The season also includes the only North Texas appearance of the Lincoln Center Theater production of Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY, “a sumptuous new production of the most perfect musical of all time” (Entertainment Weekly); an all-new production of CATS, the record-breaking musical spectacular by
Andrew Lloyd Webber; Elton John and Tim Rice’s AIDA, the Tony Award-winning hit musical from Disney; the Tony Award-winning musical with 35 smash hits through six decades of stardom, THE CHER SHOW; and the reimagined production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s OKLAHOMA!, winner of the 2019
Tony Award for Best Musical Revival.

In addition, Performing Arts Fort Worth will welcome a trio of audience favorites as Season Add-Ons: the global smash hit, THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES; Broadway’s razzle-dazzle sensation, CHICAGO; and WAITRESS, an uplifting celebration of friendship, motherhood and the magic of a well-made pie.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to introduce this season to Fort Worth,” says Dione Kennedy, President & CEO of Performing Arts Fort Worth. “These are some of the biggest and most popular titles ever seen on a Broadway stage. Each has been recognized with Tony Award wins, nominations or related awards. It’s
truly an outstanding lineup of award-winning productions.” 

“With all the anticipated excitement and demand, I want to remind the public that we’re currently in the season ticket renewal period with new season tickets going on sale April 15 through our official ticketing outlets,” Kennedy says. “Those outlets are: online at basshall.com; over the phone at 817-212-4450; and in person at the Bass Hall box office.”
