PORTLAND, Ore. — Broadway in Portland on Wednesday announced its lineup for the 2020-21 season, which includes the return of Hamilton.
The Broadway hit, which blends hip-hop, jazz and R&B to tell the story of the American founding father Alexander Hamilton, was last in Portland in 2018 and the shows quickly sold out, leaving many customers frustrated. Those who missed out two years ago will now get another opportunity. The show runs from March 16 to April 11, 2021.
In addition to Hamilton, six other musicals were announced as part of next season’s lineup.
Subscription renewals began Wednesday for current subscribers to renew their seats. New subscription purchases will be available this spring. You can sign up to be notified when new subscription passes become available on the Broadway in Portland website. There are two season package options: One that includes the six non-Hamilton shows, and another that includes Hamilton as part of a seven-show season package.
Here are the rest of the shows that are part of next season's lineup:
