Lin-Manuel Miranda’s international hit musical Hamilton, which has triumphed on Broadway, on tour, in London, and in Chicago, will get its shot in Canada during the 2019–2020 Mirvish Theatre Season.
The musical will be presented February–May 2020 at the Ed Mirvish Theatre. Casting will be announced at a later date.
The Main Subscription season, which features six productions, will kick off in September 2019 at the Mirvish with the Tony-winning The Band's Visit, followed by the Toronto premiere of Piaf/Dietrich. Gordon Greenberg will direct the latter at the CAA Theatre (September-December 2019), starring Mamma Mia! Tony nominee Louise Pitre as Edith Piaf and Jayne Lewis as Marlene Dietrich.
The Canadian premiere of the Tony-winning revival of Jerry Herman's Hello, Dolly! will be seen March-April 2020 at the Princess of Wales Theatre. Two other Canadian premieres are also on the schedule: Conor McPherson's Girl From the North Country, featuring the songs of Bob Dylan (September-November 2019 at the Princess of Wales Theatre), and Stephen Flaherty, Lynn Ahrens, and Terrence McNally’s Anastasia, based on the animated film of the same name (December 2019-January 2020 at the Mirvish). The former was initially slated for Mirvish's current season, but was ultimately replaced with the Canadian premiere of Sting's The Last Ship.
The Off-Mirvish Season features three shows: Us/Them, Carly Wijs’ new work about the 2004 deadly Beslan school siege that was acclaimed at the Edinburgh Fringe and the National Theatre of Great Britain; Room, a new stage adaptation by Emma Donoghue of her best-selling novel and Oscar-winning film; and the Toronto premiere of Indecent, Paula Vogel’s award-winning play about the Broadway debut of Sholem Ash's controversial drama God of Vengeance.
There are three bonus shows not on subscription: Opera Atelier’s production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni and two Andrew Lloyd Webber blockbusters: Cats and The Phantom of the Opera.
