St. Paul's Ordway unveils 4 Broadway shows for upcoming season

The season starts with a beloved "Tradition."

The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts has unveiled the four touring Broadway productions coming to St. Paul for the upcoming season.

"Broadway @ the Ordway" will kick off in late November (a couple months after its planned reopening) with Fiddler on the Roof, the performing arts center announced Wednesday. It will run from Nov. 30-Dec. 12, before making way for three more Broadway productions:

  • Summer: The Donna Summer Musical: Dec. 28, 2021-Jan. 2, 2022
  • An Officer and a Gentleman: Jan. 20-23, 2022
  • Waitress: March 8-13, 2022

“We are thrilled Broadway is coming back to the Ordway,” said Christine Sagstetter, interim president and CEO, in the announcement, adding: "Nothing can match the experience of a great Broadway musical with the people you love inside our beautiful venue in downtown Saint Paul.”

The Ordway hasn't hosted a live performance in 18 months, and hasn't been the sight of a Broadway production in more than 500 days, the announcement said.

Tickets are available now for those who choose the subscription option. Donors will get early access to single-show tickets on June 22, with admissions on sale to the general public stating June 29.
