Together a model has been developed that moves touring Broadway to Alaska by air. The new partnership, Broadway Alaska, will bring the very best of major national touring Broadway with a four-show season premiering in fall of 2023.
“From New York to London and to many other cities within the US, we at Nederlander are honored to bring the best live entertainment to so many astounding venues,” noted Nick Scandalios, Executive Vice President of the Nederlander Organization. “We are especially glad to now welcome the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts into the Nederlander family and to bring the very best of Broadway to Alaska!”
The Nederlander Organization operates a chain of nine theaters on Broadway, 14+ touring venues across the US and three theaters in London’s West End. In addition to producing numerous concert events, a few of Nederlander’s recent Broadway producing credits include Mr. Saturday Night, My Fair Lady, The Band’s Visit, On Your Feet!, Pretty Women, Hello Dolly! and more.
“Presenting a first-class annual Broadway Alaska season is a key piece to the success of the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts and Downtown Anchorage,” said Codie Costello, President and Chief Operating Officer of Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. “By partnering with industry leader Nederlander, we are able to guarantee a spectacular lineup for our Broadway Alaska seasons and build a lasting program that will grow audiences for years to come. We are proud to be the newest member of the Nederlander family!”
Alaska Center for the Performing Arts has served as the arts entertainment hub for the community for almost 35 years. Being a downtown landmark, the Center has continued to deliver a diverse season by their 8 resident companies and other presenters to over 240,000 visitors annually.
Broadway Alaska’s inaugural Broadway season will begin in the fall of 2023 and is comprised of four multi-week hit shows to be announced in the fall of 2022. At that time, season packages for the highly anticipated titles will go on sale to the public. On sale information for Broadway Alaska season packages will be announced at a later date.
