Last year Proctors teased that its 2018 season would feature Hamilton, sending fans of the hip-hop-infused take on history into a frenzy of anticipation. On Monday night’s annual bash, Proctors announced Hamilton will run Aug. 13 to 25 in 2019. Perhaps as notable as the presence of the touring production of the hottest musical on Broadway is a slate of other popular Broadway shows that will join it.
“Almost all of the titles in our Key Private Bank Broadway Series, and our exclusives, too, are still hot tickets on Broadway right now,” said Philip Morris, CEO of Proctors. “We’ve never had this happen before and it shows that Proctors continues to be a major player in touring Broadway. It’s here, right in Schenectady.”
Proctors 2018/2019 season will kick off on Oct. 9 with Anastasia. The show follows a woman’s quest to discover her past and her possible connections to the Romanovs. Anastasia will also undergo pre production at Proctors.
A Bronx Tale, directed by Robert De Niro and Jerry Zaks and based on Chazz Palminteri will run from October 23-28. It features doo-wop tunes from the song writer from The Little Mermaid and a slew of other Disney films..
Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical will run from Dec. 5-9.
School of Rock, featuring 14 songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber will run from Feb. 5-10, 2019.
Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will run from Feb. 26 to March 3, 2019.
Cameron Mackintosh’s new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera will haunt Proctors from April 24 to May 5.
The New York Times called it “the best musical of this century” and from May 14 to 19, 2019 The Book of Mormon will be calling Proctors home. This foul-mouthed satire, written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, is returning to Proctors after a successful 2015 stint.
Waitress, inspired by Adrienne Shelly’s film, will run from June 11-16, 2019.
Also announced was the 2018/2019 season of Cap Rep. Highlights from that season include Ring of Fire: The Johnny Cash Musical running July 6 to Aug. 12; The Royale, a story of race and boxing in Jim Crow America written by Orange is the New Black, and Daredevil scribe Marco Ramirez, running from Sept. 21 to Oct. 14; and Shakespeare in Love, running from April 5 to May 12, 2019.
