RBTL announces 2019-20 season 

"Hamilton" was going to be a hard act to follow, no matter what Rochester Broadway Theater League lined up for its coming season. Anchored by that show, (which opens Tuesday April 23) the current season earned RBTL a record-breaking 14,000 subscribers.

But next season's lineup, which was announced today, features seven award-winning shows, including:

-"Come From Away," the hit musical from Tony-nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein (November 19-24);

-Andrew Lloyd Webber's beloved classics "Jesus Christ Superstar" (February 18-23, 2020) and "CATS" (April 21-26, 2020)

-The six-time Tony Award-winning and 2018 Best Grammy Award winning teen drama "Dear Evan Hansen" (June 2-7, 2020).

RBTL will present several Season Specials in addition to the regular season lineup and it announced two today. The nine-time Tony Award-winning Best Musical "The Book of Mormon" will return to the RBTL stage October 22-27; it last came to Rochester in 2014. Disney's "The Lion King," which was choreographed by Rochester's own Garth Fagan and won six Tony Awards - including best musical - will run from December 19 through January 5.

The seven-show season ticket packages will be available soon to renewing subscribers, and new subscriptions and individual show tickets will go on sale at a later date. More info at
