'Finding Neverland'

Broadway in Fresno this morning announced its 2019-20 season at the Saroyan Theatre:


Jan. 14-15, 2020: The story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. A Fresno premiere.


March 3-4, 2020: One of Broadway’s longest running musicals returns to Fresno.


April 28-May 3, 2020: You can hear the people sing again in Fresno.

My first thoughts: It’s not the superstar lineup that Broadway in Fresno offered for the 2018-19 season, but I’m excited about “Waitress” making it here just a little over a year after the national tour played in San Francisco. You’ll notice there’s no “19” in the 2019-20 season; I’m hoping that another title will slip in for the fall. Else we have to wait eight months between “Something Rotten!” and our next Broadway engagement, and that just seems too long! My fingers are crossed.

    Don’t know much about the Neverland title, but Chicago, Les Miz, and Waitress are all great!

    Yup. Eight months is too long!
