The lineup is set for the National Theatre’s 2019–2020 season. The roster includes 12 shows, eight of which will make their Washington, D.C. premieres when they bow at the venue.
The season kicks off September 24–29 with Mike Birbiglia’s solo show The New One, which played Broadway last fall. His is not the only solo show to play the National, however, with Tony Award honoree John Leguizamo bringing his Tony-nominated Latin History for Morons to the venue November 21–23.
Additional titles from recent Broadway seasons include Escape to Margaritaville (October 8–13), the Bartlett Sher-helmed Fiddler on the Roof (December 10–15), Bandstand (March 3–8, 2020), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (April 7–26), and Summer: The Donna Summer Musical (July 22–August 2).
Rounding out the season are the 20th anniversary tour of Rent (November 12–17), The Illusionists’ Magic of the Holidays (December 3–8), Jersey Boys (December 17–January 5), The King’s Speech (February 11–16), and Blue Man Group (May 8–17).
The National Theatre was recently home to two world premiere engagements of musicals currently on Broadway: Mean Girls and Beetlejuice.
