Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Atlanta has announced its 2019/2020 lineup including an unprecedented five-week run for “Hamilton.”
The Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning musical had a sold out run last year at The Fox and many theatre-lovers didn’t get to see the blockbuster show about America’s founding father Alexander Hamilton. Broadway in Atlanta said in a media statement that “Hamilton” will run from March 31 to May 3 next year.
But “Hamilton” isn’t the only big show headed to Atlanta. Tony and Grammy winner “The Band’s Visit” will be at The Fox on Jan. 21-26 and “Wicked” returns early in the season from Oct. 23 to Nov. 17 this fall.
Also on the way: “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (Sept. 24-29); “Hello, Dolly” (Feb. 11-16); “Miss Saigon” (March 17-22); “Blue Man Group” (June 2-7); “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical” (June 23-28); and “Anastasia” (July 28-Aug. 2).
While “Hamilton” may be on the boards for five weeks, getting a ticket will likely still be a challenge. Season tickets are already sold out and single tickets for individuals shows won’t go on sale until 8 to 12 weeks prior to the engagement. Keep watching INtown for updates.
