If you love musicals, you're in luck. Broadway in Richmond announced its 2022-2023 season today, and organizers will be presenting a total of nine musicals -- which is a first for them.
The shows include the beloved musical "Hairspray" (creator of the film, John Waters will be in Richmond this Sunday at the Byrd); as well as a return of mainstream favorite "Hamilton" (April 2023) "The Book of Mormon" (Feb. 2023) and more, including five Richmond premieres and three "blockbuster add-on shows," according to a release. All the shows are held at Altria Theatre, or as old school Richmonders remember it, the Mosque.
Here are the dates for the shows:
“Dear Evan Hansen” runs Oct. 18-23 with eight performances.
