Get ready Broadway lovers! Broadway Across Canada recently announced performances are set to resume across Canada. The national program for 2022 has an exciting lively line-up of musicals for the gay in us all. 

Broadway Across Canada has announced a new roster of productions for its 2021-2022 season. In addition to previously announced titles, including the family favourite Anastasia, they are also running performances of Hamilton and Jesus Christ Superstar.

Anastasia is set to be the biggest performance of the season. The producers of this amazing musical are rumoured to be the same people behind 3-time Tony award winning show, Hamilton, so you know it will be a show worth seeing!

Anastasia is about a young woman who journeys across Russia in search of her past. She meets strange characters along the way who become loyal companions and friends. On her journey, she learns about love, friendship & family while embarking on an epic adventure to help her find home, love, and family.

Broadway Across Canada will also be presenting Hamilton, the musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Ever since its debut in 2015, the musical has gotten rave reviews and gained worldwide popularity. Anastasia is a classic animated film from Disney (1997) and was written by the same people behind The Little Mermaid & Beauty & The Beast.

Broadway Across Canada seems to have picked the same producers behind Hamilton for Anastasia. Broadway Across Canada will feature both these plays at select locations across Canada and open with a three-weekend long engagement. 

Hamilton is a critically acclaimed show, and if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s well worth the watch. It tells the story of one of America’s founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton, through the music of hip-hop and use of dance.

Hamilton Joseph Morales and Nik Walker will lead the second national tour of Hamilton as Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, respectively. Other principal roles in Hamilton will be played by Ta’Rea Campbell as Angelica Schuyler; Marcus Choi as George Washington; Elijah Malcomb as John Laurens/Phillip Schuyler; Shoba Narayan as Eliza Hamilton; Fergie L. Philippe as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison; Kyle Scatliffe as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson; Danielle Sostre as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds and Jon Patrick Walker as King George. The second national tour also includes Tia Altinay, Amber Ardolino, Conroe Brooks, Cameron Burke, Evan S. Cochran, Phil Colgan, Desmond Sean Eillington, Hope Endrenyi, Lili Froehlich, Daniel Gaymon, Camden Gonzales, Jennie Harney, Stephen Hernandez, Kristen Hoagland, Abby Jaros, Emily Jenda, Wonza Johnson, King David Jones, Carina-Kay Louchiey, Brandt Martinez, Taeko McCarroll, Tyler McKenzie, Justice Moore, Antuan Magic Raimone, Julian Ramos, Jen Sese, Willie Smith III, and Julius Thomas III.

Broadway Across Canada has not unveiled its entire line-up yet but we do know that it’s also going to include Jesus Christ Superstar.

Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera with music composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics written by Tim Rice. It opened on Broadway in 1971, and the original cast included Jeff Fenholt as Jesus and Ben Vereen as Judas. Since its debut, it’s been a staple performance in theatres over the world.

It tells the story of a group of people who follow Jesus Christ during his last days in Jerusalem, ending in his crucifix. The show interprets the psychology of Jesus and other characters, using modern attitudes, sensibilities, and slang to tell the story.

The touring production is an updated version of a 1971 musical that has been performed all over North America and around the world since its debut almost a half-century ago. 

Come From Away will also be added into the 2021-2022 season with dates and locations to be announced at a future date. Visit the Broadway Across Canada website for the complete list of shows, locations, and dates for the 2021-2022 season.
