‘Hamilton’ will kick off slate of shows in August

The delayed 40th season of Broadway in Atlanta is set to relaunch in late summer with a marquee title.

“Hamilton,” which had been set to return to Atlanta last March, will arrive at the Fox Theatre in late August for a monthlong run.

Last spring, as the spread of COVID-19 caused theater producers nationwide to scramble to reschedule touring shows – a complex dance of dates and locations – all of Atlanta’s Broadway season was scuttled.

But, with the exception of the Aaron Sorkin drama, “To Kill a Mockingbird” – which was canceled last year and the season was converted to six shows – the entire slate of productions originally planned for the 2020-21 season will now play in 2021-22.

Patrons who kept their tickets for “Hamilton” or “Blue Man Group” – the only shows that had single tickets on sale prior to their postponements – can use them for the new dates.

Season ticket packages are available at; single tickets for each production will be available about eight to 12 weeks before the show, as per usual.

For more information, call 1-800-278-4447.
