PERFORMING ARTS FORT WORTH ANNOUNCES BROADWAY AT THE BASS CANCELLATION

FORT WORTH, Texas (November 17, 2020) – Performing Arts Fort Worth, the non-profit owner and operator of Bass Performance Hall, announced today that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic the Broadway at the Bass engagement of Jimmy Buffett’s ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE that had been rescheduled to April 6-11, 2021, has now been cancelled.

This new cancellation comes on the heels of previously announced cancellations of COME FROM AWAY, MY FAIR LADY, DISNEY’S THE LION KING, DEAR EVAN HANSEN, CATS, Elton John & Tim Rice’s AIDA, THE CHER SHOW, CHICAGO, WAITRESS and THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES.

Current Broadway at the Bass engagements of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR (July 27-Aug. 1, 2021) and Rodgers & Hammerstein’s OKLAHOMA! (Aug. 10-15, 2021) remain as scheduled.

As was previously announced, the highly anticipated Fort Worth debut of HAMILTON has been rescheduled to Jan. 18-Feb. 6, 2022.

No action is necessary for current ticket holders who purchased their tickets through the Bass Hall website, www.basshall.com, or Bass Hall Box Office. Emails have been sent to ticket holders with additional information.

Those who purchased tickets through third parties will need to contact their points of purchase.

“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a significant impact on Broadway and the Touring Broadway industry,” said Performing Arts Fort Worth President & CEO Dione Kennedy. “Our industry was one of the first to close down and will be one of the last to reopen. The touring industry is based on an economic model of 100% capacity, so until it is safe and appropriate, our theatrical community will face ongoing challenges. We look forward to reopening our doors and welcoming patrons back to Bass Hall when it is safe and appropriate.”
