The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust Announces
ADJUSTED PNC BROADWAY IN PITTSBURGH PROGRAMS
FOR THE 2021-2022 SEASON
The return to Broadway in Pittsburgh is marked by The Band’s Visit;
the last Broadway event to play the Benedum Center in March 2020
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is pleased to announce that The Band’s Visit will mark the return of the best of touring Broadway to Pittsburgh in October 2021. One of the most Tony Award®-winning productions in history, this beautiful production was forced to close halfway through its run as part of the PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh series in 2020 due to the pandemic.
“There is a poetry to starting where we left off, particularly given how this production rejoices in the way music makes us laugh, makes us cry, and ultimately, brings us together,” says Marc Fleming, Vice President of Marketing, Communications, and Broadway Programming for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. “More than half of the audience members who purchased tickets were unable to attend the show in 2020 due to the shutdown and we couldn’t be more excited to bring the show back to complete its run and raise the curtain again for Broadway in the Cultural District.”
Due to the nature of presenting new touring productions—which require more time to cast, rehearse, and build sets—two adjustments have been made to the PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh schedule. The two productions that have been newly rescheduled are Hadestown and Pretty Woman. Hadestown will now play November 2022 as part of the upcoming 2022-2023 PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh season. Pretty Woman remains on the 2021-2022 season but will now play in February 2022.
“We are also pleased to announce Beautiful – The Carole King Musical will be added as a season special in March 2022,” Mr. Fleming continues. The new 2021-2022 PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh season is now:
- The Band’s Visit | October 2831, 2021 (six performances)
- Summer: The Donna Summer Musical | November 1621, 2021 (eight performances)
- Oklahoma! | January 49, 2022 (eight performances)
- Pretty Woman | February 16, 2022 (eight performances)
- Hamilton | February 22March 13, 2022 (32 performances)
- Season Special! Beautiful – The Carole King Musical | March 1820 (five performances)

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has overseen one of Pittsburgh’s most historic transformations: turning a seedy red-light district into a magnet destination for arts lovers, residents, visitors, and business owners. Founded in 1984, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a non-profit arts organization whose mission is the cultural and economic revitalization of a 14-block arts and entertainment/residential neighborhood called the Cultural District. The District is one of the country’s largest land masses “curated” by a single nonprofit arts organization. A major catalytic force in the city, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a unique model of how public-private partnerships can reinvent a city with authenticity, innovation and creativity. Using the arts as an economic catalyst, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has holistically created a world-renowned Cultural District that is revitalizing the city, improving the regional economy and enhancing Pittsburgh’s quality of life. Thanks to the support of foundations, corporations, government agencies and thousands of private citizens, the Trust stands as a national model of urban redevelopment through the arts.
