Due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19, Segerstrom Center for the Arts has announced changes to both the current schedule as well as the upcoming 2020-2021 Broadway and Curtain Call schedules.
According to information received from Segerstrom Center, audiences will still have the opportunity to enjoy the majority of the productions already announced for the 2020 – 2021 Season. Others will be reschedule when possible based on new touring scheduled.
Center President Casey Reitz said, “We are, of course, so disappointed that we are unable to close our 2019 – 2020 Broadway Series with two iconic shows, ‘Les Misérables’ and Disney’s ‘The Lion King.’ All of us could use a night out at the theater and a rousing and inspiring performance. But these shows will be back, and we feel very fortunate that most of our previously announced shows for 2020 – 2021 are still on their way.”
“We are honored by the patience and understanding of our patrons,” Reitz added. “I extend a special thank you to those who have returned their tickets to shows that have been canceled as donations to the Center. As a not-for-profit organization the Center relies on community support to present high-quality performances, impactful education programs and free community events. Ticket donations have the potential to help the Center to re-open safely and strongly as soon as possible. We know that not everyone is able to do this, but to those who have, our deepest thanks.”
For the current 2019 – 2020 Season, the engagement of “Les Misérables,” previously rescheduled to October 6 – 18, 2020, and the engagement of Disney’s “The Lion King,” originally scheduled for September 2 – 27, 2020, are both canceled.
“The Band’s Visit,” originally scheduled for August 12 – 23, 2020, has been rescheduled and will come to the Center April 13 – 25, 2021. Ticket holders who wish to see “The Band’s Visit” in the new April 2021 dates should hold onto their tickets. Tickets for the original August dates will be honored for the new performance.
In the 2020 – 2021 Season, “The Cher Show,” originally scheduled for April 13 – 25, 2021, and “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical,” originally scheduled for January 12 – 17, 2021, have both been canceled as the companies reschedule their national tours. Subscriptions paid in full will receive a credit for the cost of this show via the method of payment used. Subscriptions with a payment plan will be automatically adjusted to reflect lower remaining payments.
Finally, “Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of The Temptations” has been rescheduled from its original November 17 – 29, 2020 dates to September 14 – 26, 2021.
