Shubert Theatre - Upcoming Fall 2020 Happenings

See what's happening at 

Next Stop New Haven


Theatre’s Signature “Next Stop: New Haven” Fundraiser is coming up soon!


The Shubert Theatre, located in the heart of downtown New Haven, Connecticut, is holding its Fall 2020 season “virtually”, including a full line-up of musical, community, holiday and fundraising programming through the end of December.  


“We are proud to be one of the first cultural arts institutions to quickly pivot and move our Next Stop: New Haven event to a virtual food, entertainment and fundraising experience for our patrons back in May just after shelter-in-place orders were enacted,” said Carla Sullivan, VP of External Relations.  “After a successful sold out performance for this event, we spent the summer focused on the community at large with our summer camp offering, providing campers with an at-home experience that closely mirrored our normal offering.  The extended closure of Broadway unfortunately greatly affects our Broadway series, postponing many of our scheduled shows to visit us later than originally planned in 2021.  To continue the tradition of the Shubert Theatre and offer a variety of art, cultural and performance programming to our community, we’ve worked hard to plan a full slate of events to bring us all together – even when physically apart! – through the remainder of the calendar year.”


“While our stage is temporarily dark and seats are temporarily empty, we want to offer our loyal supporters a way to safely come together and experience diverse and rich performance offerings,” added Lew Michaels, General Manager.  “While we know it’s not the same as coming to a live event in our historic theatre, our virtual line-up over the next few months gives you a taste of the Shubert’s programming you’ve come to love…..from the comfort of your own home!  In the meantime, our entire team is hard at work planning for your safe return to our home here in New Haven when the time is right to safely come together again, live and in-person.”
