– Broadway Theatre League of Utica is proud and excited to announce its 2021 subscription season.

The upcoming season has something for theatregoers in every age group, including several family-friendly titles. The season begins with two Tech Shows including– AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN and HAIRSPRAY.  A Tech Show marks the first time all cast and crew, in addition to the costume, lighting and sound departments, etc. with a Broadway touring production are together in one place. This requires all members of the show to be in Utica and our surrounding areas for several weeks, creating a significant economic boost for local businesses. All of the Broadway Theatre League of Utica performances are held at the iconic Stanley Theatre.

The complete 2021 season line-up includes:

An Officer and A Gentleman, January 2, 2021. A sweeping romance that lifts you up where you belong! Based on the Oscar-winning film starring Richard Gere, is a breathtaking production that celebrates triumph over adversity and includes one of the most iconic and romantic endings ever portrayed on screen. Two performances will take place on this day with a matinee and evening performance.

Hairspray, February 5-6, 2021. You Can’t Stop the Beat! HAIRSPRAY, Broadway’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy phenomenon that inspired the blockbuster film and live television event, is back on tour!  We are excited to welcome Hairspray back again to Utica.

South Pacific, April 13-14, 2021. Love transcends the harsh realities of war and prejudice in this sweeping Pulitzer Prize-winning tale centered around two unlikely love affairs. Set on a tropical island during World War II, this timeless Rodgers & Hammerstein classic features some of the most beautiful music ever composed woven into an inspiring story cherished the world over.

Anastasia, May 4-5, 2021. Inspired by the beloved films, the romantic and adventure-filled new musical ANASTASIA is on a journey to Utica at last! From the Tony Award®-winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime, this dazzling show transports us from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s.

Summer, June 2-3, 2021. The Donna Summer Musical! She was a girl from Boston with a voice from heaven, who shot through the stars from gospel choir to dance floor diva.

2021 Additional Bonus Shows

Madagascar, March 30, 2021. Matinee and evening performance. Join Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria as they bound out of the zoo and onto the stage in this live musical spectacular. This smash-hit musical features all your favorite crack-a-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar.

Jersey Boys, April 21, 2021. The story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. They were just four guys from Jersey until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story — a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.

Waitress, June 9-10, 2021. Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and “Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.” When a baking contest in a nearby county — and a satisfying encounter with someone new — show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness. (Re-scheduled from the 2019-20 season, tickets will be honored.)
