Providence, RI – J.L. “Lynn” Singleton, President and CEO of the Providence Performing Arts Center (PPAC), announced today via a brief PPAC video that due to the national touring industry’s decision to reset national tours and schedules this winter through the late fall of 2021,  PPAC will not be presenting national Broadway tours or any Broadway shows from this January through June 2021 as previously announced. PPAC was originally scheduled to begin its 2020/2021 Broadway Season in January of 2021. 

“PPAC is currently working on a revised Broadway schedule which is expected to run from the late fall of 2021 through the middle of 2022. We will share a new schedule for the 2021/2022 Broadway Season as soon as we are able,” Singleton said.

The informational video features additional insight from industry insiders Sue Frost, producer of COME FROM AWAY, and Meredith Blair, president of The Booking Group, concerning the numerous elements the industry must consider while planning the relaunch of national tours. The video can be viewed here.
