Broadway musicals are coming back to Seattle. Six productions, including a return of “Hamilton,” will be staged at the Paramount.
People who held tickets before the pandemic forced the shutdown of entertainment will be given tickets for the new run.
“We are hopeful that live performing arts will help our communities revitalize and heal in the season ahead,” said Josh LaBelle, Executive Director of Seattle Theatre Group. “We are committed to maintaining a healthy environment and are excited to gather together again and experience Broadway at The Paramount.”
Seattle Theater Group will require proof of vaccination for entry to all performances. Alternately, those unable to be fully vaccinated (including kids under 12) must have proof of a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours. In addition, masks will be required at all times.

Broadway musicals in Seattle, 2021-22:
“My Fair Lady,” Dec. 28, 2021-Jan. 2, 2022
Lerner and Loewe’s “My Fair Lady” was once called “the most perfect musical of all time.” It tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor. He is determined to transform her into his idea of a “proper lady.” The show features classic songs including “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “The Rain in Spain” and “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly.”
“The Band’s Visit,” March 8-13, 2022
This is the “joyously offbeat” story of how a lost band of musicians brings to life an out-of-the-way town after arriving there by accident.
“Pretty Woman: The Musical,” June 7-12, 2022
One of Hollywood’s most beloved stories of all time comes to the stage with a new original score. “If you love the movie, then you’ll love the musical!” BuzzFeed said. And yes, it still contains the hit song, “Oh, Pretty Woman,” as did the 1990 movie.
“Hamilton,” Aug. 3-Sept. 11, 2022
Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, “Hamilton” tells the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton in a musical production that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education. With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, “Hamilton” has been a massive hit. Here’s an idea: First, tackle its inspiration, Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography “Hamilton,” then see it on stage.
“Beautiful: The Carole King Musical,” April 8-10, 2022
This is the true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom as one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. In addition to the title song, it features “I Feel The Earth Move,” “One Fine Day,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” and “You’ve Got A Friend.”
