Broadway at the Bass toasts 25 years with thrilling 2023-24 season
There are lots of options in Performing Arts Fort Worth's 2023-24 Broadway at the Bass season, from family-friendly Disney musicals to harder-edge Tony winners, pop history juggernauts, and even a prestigious play. And to top it all of, the nonprofit owner and operator of Bass Performance Hall is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
“We are so grateful to all of our sponsors, patrons and community for their continued support as we celebrate 25 years of Bass Performance Hall this spring,” says Performing Arts Fort Worth president and CEO Dione Kennedy in a release. “The stellar lineup of shows in our 2023-24 Broadway season sets the benchmark as we look ahead to the next 25 years.”
It begins with Disney’s Frozen, featuring the songs you know and love from the original Oscar-winning film plus an expanded score with a dozen new numbers by the film’s songwriters, Oscar winner Kristen Anderson-Lopez and EGOT winner Robert Lopez. An unforgettable theatrical experience filled with sensational special effects, stunning sets and costumes, and powerhouse performances, it runs August 10-20, 2023.
Aaron Sorkin has adapted Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork To Kill a Mockingbird into a new stage play directed by Bartlett Sher. It runs September 26-October 1, 2023.
From Tudor queens to pop icons, the six wives of Henry VIII take the microphone to remix 500 years of historical heartbreak into a euphoric celebration of 21st-century girl power. Six won 23 awards in the 2021-22 Broadway season, including the Tony Award for Best Original Score (Music and Lyrics). It runs November 28-December 3, 2023.
Disney’s Aladdin is next, with a thrilling new production filled with unforgettable beauty, magic, comedy, and breathtaking spectacle. It runs January 31-February 4, 2024.
Tina — The Tina Turner Musical is the inspiring journey of a woman who broke barriers and became the Queen of Rock n’ Roll. Set to the pulse-pounding soundtrack of her most beloved hits, the musical is written by Pulitzer Prize- winning playwright Katori Hall and directed by the internationally acclaimed Phyllida Lloyd. It runs February 6-11, 2024.
Hamilton is back. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Lin-Manuel Miranda has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theater — a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education. It has won Tony, Grammy, and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors. It runs June 11-23, 2024.
Set on a Greek island paradise where the sun always shines, Mamma Mia! is a tale of love, friendship, and identity beautifully told through the timeless hits of ABBA. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the father she’s never known brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited decades ago. It runs July 9-14, 2024.
There are two add-ons shows, as well: The Book of Mormon (July 28-30, 2023) and Jagged Little Pill (September 15-17, 2023).
The outrageous musical comedy The Book of Mormon follows the adventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent halfway across the world to spread the Good Word (and a lot of explicit language).
With a Tony-winning book by Diablo Cody (Juno) and Grammy-winning score featuring Alanis Morissette's biggest hits, Jagged Little Pill is about a perfectly imperfect American family.
