The Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) has announced its 2019-20 Broadway season. It features HAMILTON, The Color Purple, Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, Once on an Island, Dear Evan Hansen, The Spongebob Musical, My Fair Lady, Escape to Margaritaville, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, CATS, Blue Man Group, and Jesus Christ Superstar.
The star of the season is of course, the remarkable HAMILTON. It will run in the Music City for three weeks, starting New Years Eve. HAMILTON is the story of America’s founding father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first treasury secretary. The brainchild of Lin-Manuel Miranda, and featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway, HAMILTON is the story of America then, as told by America now.
