Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) has announced new dates for each of the eleven rescheduled and new hit Broadway shows set to take the stage as part of the newly-renamed Truist Broadway at DPAC series.

DPAC, along with Broadway tour producers, agents, and the Booking Team at Nederlander’s New York offices, have been working non-stop to bring Broadway’s biggest national tours back to their stage.

“This upcoming season is undeniably our biggest yet,” said Rachel Traversari, DPAC’s Senior Director of Marketing. “Each production represents the best of Broadway, and we cannot wait for guests to experience the unforgettable stories portrayed within each of these critically acclaimed shows.”

Broadway returns to Durham this fall with the premieres of Tony Award Winning Musicals, Hadesdown and The Band’s Visit, as well as smash hits like Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations and one of the greatest plays in history, Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird.

In addition, season seat members will have the opportunity to add Hamilton to their season package before the start of public sales. Hamilton will be on stage at DPAC May 17 – June 5, 2022.

DPAC recently retitled their Broadway series from SunTrust Broadway to TRUIST Broadway to reflect the banking company’s new name.

“SunTrust has been a valued partner since DPAC’s inception, and we look forward to beginning this next chapter with them as Truist,” said Rachel Traversari. 

As part of a long-term sponsorship agreement, Truist Broadway Season Seat Members, along with Broadway fans and DPAC guests will see the TRUIST logo and signature color of Truist purple on all future communication and marketing.

“DPAC has been such an extraordinary community partner, continuing to raise the bar by bringing world-class theatrical productions to our community” said Gray Reed, Truist Region President for the Triangle Market.  “At Truist, our purpose is to ‘inspire and build better lives and communities,’ and we are proud to have DPAC as our partner in this amazing, innovative and diverse community!”
