“Hadestown,” a haunting journey to the underworld, and the stage version of the American classic “To Kill a Mockingbird” will headline Broadway San Diego’s just announced 2020-21 season.

“We are thrilled to start the new year by announcing another exciting lineup of shows for our 20-21 Season,” said Vanessa Davis, general manager of Broadway San Diego. “We have everything from the shows currently still playing on Broadway, fresh national tours, and returning San Diego audience favorites.”

“The road from Broadway to San Diego is shorter than ever, and that has everything to do with the incredible support of our audiences, our sponsors, and the trust we’ve earned in our community,” she said.
