Popejoy Hall (Albuquerque, NM) has announced the 2021-2022 season featuring the long-awaited Broadway national tour of Hamilton, now scheduled for 24 performances over three weeks, beginning in January 2022.
Though many shows from the canceled 2020-2021 season have been rescheduled, the season holds a surprise for Broadway fans. Adapted from the cult classic 2004 comedy penned by Tina Fey, Mean Girls on its first national tour replaces Hairspray in the Haverland Carter Broadway in New Mexico Series. Broadway in New Mexico subscribers will have their Hairspray tickets automatically updated to Mean Girls at no extra charge. Mean Girls is scheduled for December 2021. We are working to reschedule Hairspray for a future season.
The Broadway tour of Come From Away, which was postponed from the 2019-2020 season has been rescheduled to play Popejoy Hall May 11 – 15, 2022.
“Despite the unprecedented circumstances that have kept Popejoy Hall dark since March, we know the postponed season will be worth the wait,” Tom Tkach, director of Popejoy Hall, expressed. “We look forward to reopening our doors and presenting this much anticipated season. When we reopen, we will follow all local, state, federal and university guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our patrons.”
“Planning for Popejoy’s safe reopening includes the addition of a security screen between the UNM’s Center for the Arts lobby and Popejoy’s lobby as well as touchless mobile ticketing,” said Tkach. “We encourage all patrons to sign up for mobile ticketing.” More information regarding mobile ticketing can be found at popejoypresents.com.

They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard … and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story—a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.
Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the Tony and Grammy Award®-winning true-life musical phenomenon, Jersey Boys. From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s just too good to be true.
December 7 – December 12, 2021
Direct from Broadway, Mean Girls is the hilarious hit musical from an award-winning creative team, including book writer Tina Fey (“30 Rock), composer Jeff Richmond (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and director Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon).
Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. Soon, this naïve newbie falls prey to a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.
