Broadway at the Embassy Expands for the 2024-2025 Season

Current subscribers can renew May 7; new subscriptions available July 8

Fort Wayne, IN (May 6, 2024) – The Embassy Theatre and Nederlander National Markets are thrilled to announce the newly-expanded 24/25 Broadway at the Embassy season. Due to popular demand, we’ve expanded the season to a two-performance series, and the Embassy is now a presenting partner. Renewing subscribers can renew their season packages starting tomorrow, May 7. New subscriptions will be available on Monday, July 8. The upcoming season is sponsored by Shambaugh & Son, L.P.

This season includes four Fort Wayne premieres, two Tony Award-winning Best Musicals, and one title back by popular demand. The new season kicks off with AIN’T TOO PROUD: THE LIFE & TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS, the electrifying smash-hit Broadway musical that follows The Temptations’ extraordinary journey from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The season continues with the longest running American musical in the history of Broadway, CHICAGO THE MUSICAL. It’s hotter than ever! Starting off 2025 is the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, HADESTOWN, a sensational new musical that combines Greek mythology and a Grammy Award-winning album. Continuing the season is another Tony Award-winning Best Musical, DEAR EVAN HANSEN, a “breathtaking knockout of a musical” according to The New York Times. The season concludes with TINA: THE TINA TUNER MUSICAL, a celebration of the undisputed Queen of Rock ‘n Roll.

Renewing subscribers can renew their subscription starting tomorrow. Sales for new subscriptions begin Monday, July 8. On-sale dates for individual tickets will be announced at a later date.

“We couldn’t be happier to expand the Broadway at the Embassy season as we continue to grow this important market,” said Jack Meyer, vice president – programming, Nederlander Production Co. “In addition to a stellar season, we’re excited to enter a new partnership with the Embassy Theatre to continue bringing the best of Broadway to Fort Wayne.”

As the Embassy has grown its programming in recent years to include more presenting and co-presenting opportunities, this allows the organization to have a significant voice in the choice and direction of live music and stage experiences in this region. This also means that the Embassy has more financial investment in its success. The Embassy has grown since its days of being primarily a rental house where tours and shows were simply looking for a venue to rent along their tour route. Now, the organization’s programming strategy includes seeking out exactly what is desired and needed for the community.

“In recent years, we have worked hard to broaden our programming and focus on vital arts and cultural experiences for northeast Indiana. Broadway at the Embassy is an important part of that strategy,” said Kelly Updike, Embassy Theatre president & CEO. “Our community has supported this growth by filling the house. We are thrilled to expand to two nights and become a presenting partner in this series. The new season offers rich diversity, a little classic Broadway and newer shows never seen in this region.”

AIN’T TOO PROUD – THE LIFE & TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS the electrifying smash-hit Broadway musical that follows The Temptations’ extraordinary journey from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Nominated for 12 Tony® Awards and the winner of the 2019 Tony Award for Best Choreography, it’s a thrilling story of brotherhood, family, loyalty and betrayal during a decade of civil unrest in America.

CHICAGO THE MUSICAL | December 10-11, 2024
CHICAGO is still the one musical with everything that makes Broadway shimmy-shake: a universal tale of fame, fortune, and all that jazz, with one showstopping song after another and the most astonishing dancing you’ve ever seen.

In the whirlwind of Chicago’s Jazz Age, two of the Cook County Jail’s most notorious murderesses—vaudeville star Velma Kelly and chorus girl Roxie Hart—become fierce rivals as they compete for headlines amidst a media frenzy.

Broadway’s longest-running musical has been razzle dazzling audiences for 27 years, and after more than 10,000 performances, 6 Tony Awards®, 2 Olivier Awards, and a Grammy®, we’re just getting started.

HADESTOWN | February 18-19, 2025


Welcome to HADESTOWN, where a song can change your fate. Winner of eight 2019 Tony Awards® including Best Musical and the 2020 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Theater Album, this acclaimed new show from celebrated singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and innovative director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) is a love story for today…and always.

Intertwining two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — HADESTOWN is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets go.

DEAR EVAN HANSEN | March 21-22, 2025

A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. DEAR EVAN HANSEN is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it.

DEAR EVAN HANSEN has struck a remarkable chord with audiences and critics everywhere, including The Washington Post who says DEAR EVAN HANSEN is “Theatrical magic. One of the most remarkable shows in musical theatre history.” The New York Times calls it “a breathtaking knockout of a musical.” And NBC Nightly News declares the musical “an anthem resonating on Broadway and beyond.”

DEAR EVAN HANSEN features a book by Tony Award winner Steven Levenson, a score by Grammy®, Tony® and Academy Award® winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, The Greatest Showman), and direction by four-time Tony Award nominee Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal).
