Like much of the country, our team at Broadway In Chicago has been horrified in recent weeks by the unjust killing of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, and so many others. We have no tolerance for racism, violence, and hatred, and we stand with the movement towards racial justice in America and around the globe.

Broadway In Chicago is stepping up to make a pledge to do our part to support the movement, but we first must own several truths. Throughout these past few weeks, a light has been rightly shone on how few BIPOC have been able to rise within the ranks of Broadway leadership. We acknowledge that as our team continues to grow, we must move toward a world that gives space to BIPOC voices. Going forward we intend to use our platform to raise voices that have been suppressed, to work towards a more equal future, and to push our industry forward. We acknowledge that we are still learning but must take a stand now toward a greater good. Broadway can and must do better.

In addition to pushing our industry forward, Broadway In Chicago pledges to make donations to support these organizations that advocate for change: Black Lives Matter ChicagoBroadway Advocacy CoalitionColor of Change, My Block, My Hood, My City, and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

You too can support these organizations and learn more at the Broadway Advocacy Coalition’s antiracism resources.

This is only the beginning. We plan to continuously reevaluate and improve as we continue to listen and grow, but we hope these first steps will lead to lasting change on Broadway and beyond.

We look forward to seeing you again in the theatre with a better more equal Broadway.

Breaking box office records week after week and receiving thunderous raves on Broadway, this HELLO, DOLLY! pays tribute to the original work of legendary director/choreographer Gower Champion – hailed both then and now as one of the greatest stagings in musical theater history. Rolling Stone calls it “a must-see event. A musical comedy dream. If you’re lucky enough to score a ticket, you’ll be seeing something historic. Wow, wow, wow, indeed!”

This new production features stunning spectacle and a sensational cast of 42 performing the soaring score featuring Broadway hits including “The Heat is On in Saigon,” “The Movie in My Mind,” and “Last Night of the World.” The New Yorker raves “A DYNAMITE BROADWAY REVIVAL.”

A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. DEAR EVAN HANSEN is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it. The Washington Post says DEAR EVAN HANSEN is “ONE OF THE MOST REMARKABLE SHOWS IN MUSICAL THEATER HISTORY.” Rolling Stone calls DEAR EVAN HANSEN, “a game-changer that hits you like a shot in the heart” and NBC News says the musical is “an inspiring anthem resonating on Broadway and beyond.” The Original Broadway Cast Recording of DEAR EVAN HANSEN, produced by Atlantic Records, made an extraordinary debut on the Billboard 200 when
released and entered the chart at #8 – the highest charting debut position for an original cast album since 1961—before winning the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.

Nov. 20 – Dec. 2, 2018
Oriental Theatre, 24 W. Randolph
The New York Times calls it, “The best musical of the century.” The Washington Post says, “It is the kind of evening that restores your faith in musicals.” And Entertainment Weekly says, “Grade A: the funniest musical of all time.” Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show calls it “Genius. Brilliant. Phenomenal.” It’s THE BOOK OF MORMON, the nine-time Tony Award®- winning BEST MUSICAL. This outrageous musical comedy follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent halfway across the world to spread the Good Word. Now with standing room only productions in Australia, London, on Broadway, and across
North America, THE BOOK OF MORMON has truly become an international sensation. Contains explicit language.
