Dallas, TX (March 24, 2022) – Dallas Summer Musicals today announced a new operating name change to Broadway Dallas as well as its 2022-2023 Germania Insurance Broadway Series, in partnership with Broadway Across America (BAA).

While the organization’s name is changing, its commitment to bringing the best Broadway productions to Dallas is not.  As the premier presenter of touring Broadway in the region, Broadway Dallas will continue to deliver the hottest, most award-winning, edge-of-your seat exciting shows to its diverse, multi-generational audiences on a year-round basis (not just in the summer). The name change and a series of new sub-brands also reflect the core of Broadway Dallas’ mission to grow its already expansive education programs and community partnerships which allow the organization to share the “Spirit of Broadway” with members of the community who might not otherwise have access to these world-class productions.

“We changed our name from Dallas Summer Musicals to Broadway Dallas to accurately capture who we are and what we do. It encompasses not only the magnificent work that we put on our stage, but also our other exciting events and community engagement and education programs through which we share ‘the spirit of Broadway’ with as many members of our community as possible,” said Ken Novice, President and CEO of Broadway Dallas.

“We could not be more excited about our 2022-2023 Germania Insurance Broadway Series,” continued Novice. “With new blockbusters, classics, and crowd favorites, it’s a stunning season that offers many opportunities to make new memories with your friends and family.”

The Germania Insurance Broadway Series launches in September with the Tony Award®-winning smash-hit Broadway musical AIN’T TOO PROUD – THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS. The series continues with Lincoln Center Theater’s critically acclaimed production of Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY; the electrifying new global phenomenon SIX; one of Hollywood’s most beloved romantic stories of all time, PRETTY WOMAN: THE MUSICAL; the first North American tour of MOULIN ROUGE! THE MUSICAL, the winner of ten 2021 Tony Awards® including Best Musical; TOOTSIE, a laugh-out-loud love letter to the theater, based on the Oscar®-nominated film; and the history-making new play Harper Lee’s TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD – written by Academy Award® winner Aaron Sorkin. In addition, the international Irish dance phenomenon RIVERDANCE 25TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW will be offered as a season option.

SIX and TOOTSIE will be presented by Broadway Dallas at the Winspear Opera House as part of its on-going collaboration with the AT&T Performing Arts Center.

AIN’T TOO PROUD – THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS | September 6-18, 2022
Presented by Broadway Dallas at the Music Hall at Fair Park

AIN’T TOO PROUD – THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS is the electrifying, new smash-hit Broadway musical that follows The Temptations’ extraordinary journey from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. With their signature dance moves and silky-smooth harmonies, they rose to the top of the charts creating an amazing 42 Top Ten Hits with 14 reaching number one. 

Nominated for 12 Tony® Awards and the winner of the 2019 Tony Award for Best Choreography, AIN’T TOO PROUD tells the thrilling story of brotherhood, family, loyalty, and betrayal, as the group’s personal and political conflicts threatened to tear them apart during a decade of civil unrest in America.  

Written by three-time Obie Award winner Dominique Morisseau, directed by two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff (Jersey Boys), and featuring the Tony-winning choreography of Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, On Your Feet!), the unforgettable story of this legendary quintet is set to the beat of the group’s treasured hits, including “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” “Get Ready,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” and so many more.

  

Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY | November 1-13, 2022
Presented by Broadway Dallas at the Music Hall at Fair Park

From Lincoln Center Theater that brought you The King & I and South Pacific, comes “a sumptuous new production of the most perfect musical of all time” (Entertainment Weekly), Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY.  Director Bartlett Sher’s glowing production is “thrilling, glorious and better than it ever was” (New York Times).  “Every so often a revival comes along that reminds you how indispensable great theater can be” (NY1).

Boasting such classic songs as “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain,” “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” and “On the Street Where You Live,” MY FAIR LADY tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.”  But who is really being transformed?

 From Tudor Queens to Pop Princesses, the SIX wives of Henry VIII take the mic to remix five hundred years of historical heartbreak into an exuberant celebration of 21st century girl power! This new original musical is the global sensation that everyone is losing their head over. The New York Times says SIX “TOTALLY RULES!” (Critic’s Pick) and The Washington Post hails SIX as “Exactly the kind of energizing, inspirational illumination this town aches for! The Broadway season got supercharged!”

A powerful and stirring reinvention of this beloved favorite, celebrated the world over for its Grammy award‐winning score and the thrilling energy and passion of its Irish and international dance. Twenty‐five years on, composer Bill Whelan has rerecorded his mesmerizing soundtrack while producer Moya Doherty and director John McColgan have completely reimagined the ground‐breaking show with innovative and spectacular lighting, projection, stage and costume designs.

RIVERDANCE began its journey as the interval act in the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, produced for television by Moya Doherty. This electrifying and innovative seven‐minute dance piece was then developed into a full‐length stage show by Producer Moya Doherty, Composer Bill Whelan and Director John McColgan. With its fusion of Irish and International music and dance, the show broke all box office records during its world première run in Dublin in early 1995. When the show transferred to London the reaction was unprecedented.
