ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Popejoy Hall is planning for a reopening this fall. Officials announced the 2021-2022 season Friday.
The new season will feature the Broadway national tour of "Hamilton," which is now scheduled for 24 performances at Popejoy beginning in late January 2022.
Many of the shows from the canceled 2020 season have been rescheduled, including the Broadway tour of "Come From Away," "Jersey Boys," and "Anastasia." For Broadway in New Mexico subscribers who bought "Hairspray" tickets, they will automatically have their tickets updated to see the surprise replacement, "Mean Girls," which is scheduled for December 2021.
Officials with Popejoy Hall said they are working to reschedule "Hairspray" for a future season.
"Despite the unprecedented circumstances that have kept Popejoy Hall dark since March, we know the postponed season will be worth the wait," Tom Tkach, director of Popejoy Hall, said. "We look forward to reopening our doors and presenting this much anticipated season. When we reopen, we will follow all local, state, federal and university guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our patrons."
This year's season will also include 23 Ovation Series shows, like the "The Great Gatsby."
Current season ticket holders do not need to renew their subscriptions and their tickets will automatically move to the rescheduled dates. New subscriptions will go on sale on March 23 to the general public.
Single tickets for "Hamilton" and other shows will go on sale to the public this fall.
