PNC BROADWAY IN PITTSBURGH

From all of us at the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, we miss seeing you and sharing the thrill and magic of what unfolds onstage night after night in the Cultural District.

As the global health crisis continues to deeply impact performing arts centers across the country, we are experiencing its ripple effects on our 2020-2021 Broadway season programming here in Pittsburgh. A successful Broadway tour requires many elements to be in place, which have been affected by the pandemic—such as building sets and costumes, and casting and rehearsals.

Due to these delays, we have changes to our 2020-2021 Broadway season schedule, which include:

We are very excited to announce these new updates to the 2020-2021 season:

All together, the PNC BROADWAY IN PITTSBURGH 2020-2021 season will include seven incredible titles, with all shows taking place at the Benedum Center – our complete line-up is listed at TrustArts.org/Broadway.

Your health and safety are our top priority. With the guidance of government health officials, we will share our plans with you as to how and when we can safely return to the theater.

We cannot wait to welcome you back to the Benedum Center and share the very best of Broadway when the curtain rises once again. Until then, we wish you the best of health and safety.
