Frequently asked questions

With the Stay at Home order lifted, why are shows still being canceled, even if they are a few months away?

The global pandemic has caused a shutdown of the touring Broadway industry. Launching tours requires months of production work that includes building sets and costumes, casting and rehearsals. This production process cannot begin until it is safe to work, and the timing of reopening existing tours and launching new tours will be delayed due to this shutdown. As such, some engagements have to be rescheduled to a later date. The producers of these shows are committed to coming to Minneapolis as soon as possible.

Please know our team continues to work diligently with our partners to navigate the challenges of scheduling shows and touring Broadway across the country. The touring industry depends on an interconnected network of cities as shows travel from theater to theater each week. We are working to reschedule canceled engagements as soon as possible.

If there are COVID-19 developments (i.e. a vaccine), will shows be moved back up or dates reinstated?

We are continuing to monitor the timing and feasibility of all engagements in relation to guidance provided by medical and public health officials and to comply with local government regulations. We are working to keep as many engagements scheduled or reschedule any canceled engagements as soon as possible.

What’s the difference between a canceled, confirmed rescheduled, and postponed/rescheduling in process show?

A canceled show means we were unable to find a date to bring back the production in our current schedule. A confirmed rescheduled show means we were able to find a new date to bring back the production. A postponed or rescheduling-in-process show means we are working to find a new date to bring the production back to our theatres. Affected ticket holders should check their email for more information about their ticket status.

I am a subscriber for the 2020-2021 season. Will I be refunded if the Broadway season is impacted by COVID-19?

While there may be additional unforeseen changes to our season, please know that as a subscriber, if any performances on your series are canceled, you will have the option to receive a credit, refund or the ability to donate the value of your affected tickets. If you have any concerns about your 2020-2021 subscription due to COVID-19, please contact our subscriber hotline 800.859.7469 (Monday-Friday: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.).

Is Anastasia still happening in December of 2020?

At this time, Anastasia, rescheduled for December 1-6, 2020 will still occur as planned.

Why has Summer  been canceled instead of rescheduled?

Unfortunately, we are unable to find a new date to bring back the production in our current schedule.

 

Frequently asked questions regarding Disney’s Frozen

Why were my tickets canceled, but others have tickets for a rescheduled performance?

Due to the rerouting of the tour, we were unable to reschedule all four weeks of the original run. Because of this, some performances have no corresponding performance in the rescheduled dates to move your tickets to automatically. You will be contacted by your point of purchase with your options. Rest assured, if your performance has been canceled, you will be contacted in August with information to purchase tickets for the new dates before the general public.

I received notice that my performance has been rescheduled. What should I do with my tickets?

If you have a paper ticket, please hold on to your original tickets as they will be honored on your rescheduled performance date. If you have a mobile ticket, you should remove your original tickets from your Apple Wallet or Google Pay Wallet and re-add the tickets from your account onto your device. A new date will appear on the tickets within 48 hours.
