March in Denver is all about Hamilton! But looking past Hamilton, if that is even possible, Denver I Love is happy to bring you the latest news from the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) on the next season’s show line up that runs Fall 2018 through Summer 2019.
Denver continues to be a favorite destination for Broadway launches and national tours. So, Hamilton or no Hamilton, the 2018/2019 season is packed with some of the most phenomenal Broadway shows ever!
For starters, the season will kick off with the national tour launch of Dear Evan Hansen at the Buell Theatre September 25th through October 13th, 2018. Dear Evan Hansen is the winner of six 2017 Tony Awards Including Best Musical and the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.
Dear Evan Hansen is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it. The musical features a book by Tony Award winner Steven Levenson, a score by Grammy, Tony and Academy Award® winners (AND UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, SCHOOL OF MUSIC, THEATRE AND DANCE ALUMS) Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman). GO BLUE! Dear Evan Hansen director Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal) is a four-time Tony Award nominee. Casting will be announced at a later date.
The musical revival of Hello Dolly is also on the marquee for next season at the DCPA, March 27 to April 7, 2019, and will star Broadway legend Betty Buckley! Wow!
