There will be sixteen shows coming to Philadelphia, including “Beetlejuice”, “Annie”, “The Lion King”, and more.
“It’s something we are dedicated to presenting the best of 20 Broadway. There’s so many titles that we thought fit well with Philadelphia audiences,” said senior director of programming and presentations Frances Egler.
Kimmel Culture’s Campus biggest season yet has shows in store for just about every age group.
“We try to bring in something for everyone, we have the weird Blue Man Group during the holidays at the theater, then we have perennial favorites like Cats,” said Egler.
This upcoming season is a relief for the theater, which suffered from multiple closings throughout the pandemic. The campus lost 93% of its revenue and over 1,000 performances were canceled.
Although the campus is running in full operation, they are still requiring masks and proof of vaccinations for guests.
Fans are excited for the Broadway shows to make their return to Philly and looking forward to the line-up.
“People are more excited to support these actresses and actors who have definitely struggled these past two years and i’m certainly excited to go back to the Kimmel Center to get those tickets to see shows like ‘Le Mis’ and ‘Lion King’ coming up,” said Temple senior Aurora Budson.
