The four-show Broadway at The National subscription series kicks off in December of 2021 and is set to include Tootsie, Pretty Woman: The Musical, Come From Away, and Hairspray. Season specials can be added to any package, including How The Grinch Stole Christmas, The Simon & Garfunkel Story, Alton Brown: Beyond the Eats, and Rent – The 25th Anniversary Farewell Tour.

“We are grateful for our audiences and their continued support of the arts during this unprecedented time,” said James L. Nederlander, President of the Nederlander Organization. “We are confident that the theatre community will return from this ‘extended intermission’ with renewed heart and energy. It’s exciting to look ahead to the future, and we hope we’ll see you back at The National this fall.”

To prepare for reopening, The National has upgraded air filtration, increased the cleaning schedule of surfaces in the theatre, and modified the Box Office and ticketing procedures to limit physical contact. Thanks to the generous support of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and Events DC, The National Theatre Foundation secured the resources to install a building-wide HVAC bi-polar ionization system.
