GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The stage is set for the return of Broadway. After a long intermission, Broadway Grand Rapids will raise the curtain on its new season.

It starts in January 2022 with Hairspray. The season also includes a return to the stage of the popular show Hamilton.

Executive Director Mike Lloyd says touring companies that had to shut down during the pandemic are now back in rehearsal and preparing to hit the road.

Broadway Grand Rapids was able to secure the same shows that had been on the 2020 season schedule.

Lloyd says they will adhere to state and local health guidelines when audiences return to the theater in January. He’s positive theater goers will fill the seats, with so many people ready for that curtain to go up.

Performance dates for the 2021-2022 season are:

  • Hairspray: Jan. 11 through Jan. 16 of 2022
  • Hamilton: Feb. 8 through Feb. 20 of 2022
  • Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations: March 29 through April 3 of 2022
  • Dear Evan Hansen: May 3 through May 8 of 2022
  • Mean Girls: June 21 through June 26 of 2022
  • Come From Away: Nov. 8 through Nov. 13 of 2022
