Tina Fey's comedy of cattiness Mean Girls will get the Broadway treatment during the 2019/2020 season. Courtesy of Broadway at the Paramount

Broadway at the Paramount brings New York musical theater to one of our loveliest historic venues. The 2019/2020 lineup was just announced today: It includes a couple of theater adaptations of beloved children's animated films (Disney's 'Frozen' is one), Mark Morris's topsy-turvy Nutcracker adaptation The Hard Nut, and a staging of Tina Fey's Mean Girls. Season tickets will go on sale in June (although if you were a subscriber last year, you can renew now), but, in the meantime, make sure to save the shows you're interested in to your own list so you don't forget about them later. You can also check out our performance calendar for events happening sooner.

SEPTEMBER 19–22, 2019

Chicago
Murder, depravity, and Bob Fosse choreography make a potent cocktail in this Tony-winning revival of the famed Kander and Ebb musical about sexy, sociopathic showgirls of the roaring '20s.
This is a season option (not included in season passes)

OCTOBER 29–NOVEMBER 3, 2019

Miss Saigon
A very young Vietnamese woman and an American GI have a romantic (and ultimately tragic) encounter in this musical theater take on Madama Butterfly, written by Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil, the team behind Les Misérables.

DECEMBER 6–15, 2019

The Hard Nut
The brilliant ballet choreographer Mark Morris's update of The Nutcracker, now a 28-year-old classic in itself, transports E.T.A. Hoffman's story from 19th-century Germany to 1970s America. With production design inspired by the great Fantagraphics-published comics artist Charles Burns, this Broadway staging is gonna be weird, queer, and perhaps even John Waters-esque.

DECEMBER 31, 2019–JANUARY 5, 2020

Summer: The Donna Summer Musical
The great disco diva Donna Summer gets the musical biography treatment, complete with a score full of her biggest hits—"Hot Stuff," "Love to Love You Baby," and more.

JANUARY 14–19, 2020

Fiddler on the Roof
Broadway on tour will revisit the bittersweet story of a poor Russian shtetl milkman whose daughters come of age and fall in love—as anti-Semitic feeling rises. The music and lyrics (by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick) are great, the ending is heart-wrenching, and the subject is timely. Directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher.

FEBRUARY 7–MARCH 1, 2020

Disney's 'Frozen'
In 2013, Stranger contributor Denis Theriault wrote of the Disney film, "Frozen is the first Disney musical in a long time that I can remember making me grin, laugh, and tear up." The magical story of a winter realm, a secretly powerful princess, and her plucky sister will be transposed to the stage in this Broadway-on-tour production, with Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez and book by Jennifer Lee. Just be warned that "Let It Go" will be stuck in your head for the next several years.

APRIL 21–26, 2020

The Play That Goes Wrong
This goofy quasi-murder mystery won Best New Comedy at the 2015 Laurence Olivier Awards for its run at the Duchess Theatre in London—which began in 2014 and lasted until April 2019. The plot is a bit meta: A theatrical company puts on a murder mystery play (that's a play-within-a-play, if you're following) and is beset by disaster after disaster, including repeated scenes, understudies fighting with the mains, and scenery falling apart.

MAY 19–31, 2020

The Book of Mormon
As human civilization rapidly approaches the end times, some of us need entertainment that skewers religion just to keep from going crazy. One deceptive, brilliant thing about The Book of Mormon is that the show unexpectedly ends up being okay with religion in the end—so long as you’re using your religious beliefs to make the world better. Plus, there are unbelievably funny tap numbers (“Turn It Off”), parodies of pop-culture juggernauts like Star Wars and The Lion King, and lines like “I can’t believe Jesus just called me a dick!” CHRISTOPHER FRIZZELLE
This is a season option (not included in season passes)

JUNE 16–21, 2020

Anastasia
This Broadway musical is an adaptation of the 1997 film, a fictionalized fantasy about a young amnesiac woman who falls in with a pair of con men trying to pass her off as the Russian duchess Anastasia. But who is she really?

AUGUST 4–9, 2020

Mean Girls
A fish-out-of-water teenage nerd is tempted by a cruel high school clique in this musical based on the Tina Fey movie, with music by Jeff Richmond (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), lyrics by Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and direction by Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon).
