Which Paramount musical in 2020/2021 are YOU most excited for?

By Keridwyn Deller

The Paramount and Seattle Theatre Group have announced The 2020/2021 Premera Blue Cross Broadway at The Paramount season of musicals! The blogger team here at Seattle Pockets is likely to review most if not all of the shows at the Paramount in downtown Seattle and there are so many we’re looking forward to! Subscription renewals are on sale now and new subscriptions will be available later in March. Details here.

Here’s the lineup, in their own words:

“The season kicks off with the critically acclaimed smash-hit musical THE BAND’S VISIT, featuring the story of a band that arrives lost in a remote town to which they bring new life with their music. This is followed by the Season Option, the joyful show for all ages, BLUE MAN GROUP.

Next, the holiday season gets into gear with IRVING BERLIN’S WHITE CHRISTMAS, a lavish new production and a must-see for the holidays. Then, we ring in the new year with AIN’T TOO PROUD – THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS an electrifying story following the Temptations’ extraordinary rise to stardom.

The season continues with Lincoln Center Theater’s new production of a timeless classic musical, LERNER & LOEWE’S MY FAIR LADY, which is followed by another new production of an iconic musical phenomenon, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR.

Late spring features six weeks of HAMILTON, back by popular demand. Featuring an award-winning creative team and based on the beloved 1990’s hit movie, PRETTY WOMAN: THE MUSICAL concludes the season.”

I saw Hamilton when it was in town last time and it was phenomenal. I would absolutely go see this again but since my mom, Seattle Pockets reviewer Jeanne Deller, hasn’t had a chance to see it yet, she’ll be sharing her review of the show this time around (Mom and Dad – have a blast! I know you will). 

Beyond Hamilton (the crown jewel of the season and reason alone to get a season subscription), I’m most excited to see Jesus Christ Superstar (one of my favorite musical scores of all time) and Ain’t Too Proud (I love the music of The Temptations and songs of this era and the show looks promising based on this New York Times review). I’m also looking forward to a date night with my hubby to see My Fair Lady as it will fun nostalgia for him. (Fun fact: Brandon played Colonel Pickering in his 8th grade production. Cute!)

What musicals from the Broadway at the Paramount’s season are you most excited to see? What do you know about 2018 Tony Award winner for Best Musical, The Band’s Visit? Post in the blog comments or share in the comments on Seattle Pockets’ Facebook Page. I look forward to hearing from you!

P.S. I’m also so stoked to see The Play That Goes Wrong in April of this year (part of the 19/20 Season)! I hear great things.
