Dallas Summer Musicals — or Broadway Dallas, as it will now be known — has revealed its 2022-23 season of touring Broadway shows in partnership with Broadway Across America, and there are some pretty big names on the list.
"We changed our name from Dallas Summer Musicals to Broadway Dallas to accurately capture who we are and what we do," says Broadway Dallas president and CEO Ken Novice. "It encompasses not only the magnificent work that we put on our stage, but also our other exciting events and community engagement and education programs through which we share 'the spirit of Broadway' with as many members of our community as possible."
In other words, not just musicals and not just in the summer.
