The 2020 / 2021 Bank of America Broadway in Fort Lauderdale season includes 5 South Florida premieres featuring Broadway’s biggest blockbusters and the return of the world’s most popular musical and an all time fan favorite.

All rise for Academy Award® winner Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize- winning masterwork – To Kill A Mockingbird (October 13 – 25, 2020) with direction by Tony Award® winner Bartlett Sher. The New York Times Critic’s Pick To Kill A Mockingbird is “the most successful American play in Broadway history. It has not played to a single empty seat” (60 Minutes).

Audiences and critics alike are rediscovering this beloved musical with breathtaking music, including one of the most treasured songs in musical theater—”Memory”. Winner of 7 Tony Awards® including Best Musical, Cats (November 17 – 29, 2020) tells the story of one magical night when an extraordinary tribe of cats gathers for its annual ball to rejoice and decide which cat will be reborn.

Call it “musical comedy heaven” (Rolling Stone). Call it “the most uproarious new musical in years!” (The Hollywood Reporter). Call it Tootsie! (December 15 – 27, 2020) This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theater tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime.

The critically acclaimed smash-hit Broadway musical The Band’s Visit (January 12 – 17, 2021) is the winner of 10 Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, making it one of the most Tony-winning musicals in history.  It is also a Grammy Award® winner for Best Musical Theater Album.

Everyone’s invited to the joyous Broadway hit that New York Magazine hails as “smart and big-hearted” while The New York Times declares it “makes you believe in musical comedy again!” The Prom (February 23 – 28, 2021) is a new musical comedy about big Broadway stars on a mission to change the world and the love they discover that unites them all.

After an incredible run on Broadway, Audience Choice Award-winner Pretty Woman: The Musical (Mar 9 – 21, 2021) is now on tour! One of Hollywood’s most beloved stories of all time, Pretty Woman: The Musical is brought to life by a powerhouse creative team representing the best of music, Hollywood, and Broadway.

Back by popular demand, Hamilton (Apr 13 – May 2, 2021) returns to South Florida. Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre—a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education
