'Frozen' tops hit-laden lineup for 'Broadway on Hennepin' season

There are some hugely popular productions head to the Twin Cities.

The Hennepin Theatre Trust has revealed the lineup for its 2019-20 "Broadway on Hennepin" season and there are some huge hits on there.

Chief among them is the stage version of Disney smash "Frozen," which lands at the Orpheum Theatre for a two-and-a-half week run between May 13-31, 2020.

Arguably even bigger news is that the runaway success that was "Hamilton" is returning for another run in Minneapolis, albeit not until the 2020-21 Broadway season.

This 19-20 season features eight new shows and three that are returning "by popular demand."

The news shows include "Mean Girls," the hit musical based on Tina Fey's successful comedy movie, which will play for two weeks from Oct. 1-13 this year, and a debut run for "Anastasia" between Mar. 24–Apr. 5, 2020.

Returning to Minneapolis will be "The Phantom of the Opera," "Rent" – which is embarking on its 20th Anniversary Tour, and "Blue Man Group."

Here's the full list (all shows at the Orpheum unless stated).

Rent: Aug. 14-18, 2019.
