Reposted from Bass Hall.

COVID-19 continues to have a significant impact on Broadway and the Touring Broadway industry. As a result, we are announcing today some additional programming changes to the 2020-2021 Broadway at the Bass season at Bass Performance Hall.

Engagements of Disney’s THE LION KING (Jan. 13-31, 2021) and DEAR EVAN HANSEN (Feb. 9-14, 2021) have been cancelled. We are working diligently with the producers of both shows to bring them back to Bass Hall in a future Broadway at the Bass season.

These new cancellations come on the heels of previously announced cancellations of COME FROM AWAY, MY FAIR LADY, CATS, Elton John & Tim Rice’s AIDA, THE CHER SHOW, CHICAGO, WAITRESS and THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES.

The current Broadway at the Bass season will continue to include Jimmy Buffett’s ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE (April 6-11, 2021), JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR (July 27-Aug. 1, 2021) and Rodgers & Hammerstein’s OKLAHOMA! (Aug. 10-15, 2021).

As was previously announced, the highly anticipated Fort Worth debut of HAMILTON has been rescheduled to Jan. 18-Feb. 6, 2022.

No action is necessary if you purchased your tickets through the Bass Hall website, www.basshall.com, or Bass Hall Box Office. You will receive a refund for the face value of your tickets to your original method of payment. Your refund should post to your account within 60 business days.

Those who purchased tickets through third parties will need to contact their points of purchase.

“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a significant impact on Broadway and the Touring Broadway industry,” said Performing Arts Fort Worth President & CEO Dione Kennedy. “Our industry was one of the first to close down and will be one of the last to reopen. The touring industry is based on an economic model of 100% capacity, so until it is safe and appropriate, our theatrical community will face ongoing challenges. We look forward to reopening our doors and welcoming patrons back to Bass Hall when it is safe and appropriate.”
